  Beautiful Nebraska

Written by Jim Fras

 

Beautiful Nebraska, peaceful prairieland,

Laced with many rivers, and the hills of sand;

Dark green valleys cradled in the earth,

Rain and sunshine bring abundant birth.

 

Beautiful Nebraska, as you look around,

You will find a rainbow reaching to the ground;

All these wonders by the Master's hand;

Beautiful Nebraska land.

 

We are so proud of this state where we live,

There is no place that has so much to give.

 

Beautiful Nebraska, as you look around,

You will find a rainbow reaching to the ground;

All these wonders by the Master's hand,

Beautiful Nebraska land.

 

 

Omaha

Written by Fritz Al Carlson

 

 

I've been here, I've been there, I've been everywhere

from New York to the coast.

Cities large, cities small I have tried to compare

but my home town still I boast.

It calls me, it wants me, the Gate of the West,

something doing all the time.

Best of all, large or small, I love it, this grand old town of mine.

 

Omaha, Omaha

Finest place you ever saw.

Come along, join the throng.

Cause you simply can't go wrong.

I'll say it's great in

Omaha, Omaha.

Boost your home town all day long,

and at night when you are sleeping,

dream of O Ma ha.

 

Cobra Charming

Written by Gail Erwin

 

You can teach a cobra.

You can reach a cobra.

All you have to do is play.

When she hears the flute, she'll come around.

She just can't resist that sizzlin' sound.

Cobras learn to add up.  Cobras learn to write down.

They're the smartest snakes in town.
