Houston Has a New Theme Song

The things that show up in your in-box... Yo Texas, let's kick it! - Chris Gray

In case you need a melody refresher...

Ike Ike Baby, Ike Ike Baby All right stop, evacuate and listen Ike is here with some big ambition People, close your homes up tightly It's blowing like a hurricane daily and nightly Where will it stop? Yo-I don't know Turn off the lights and let's go To the coastline Ike rocks like a vandal Start up the car and watch me drive like an animal

Word to your mother, indeed.

Dang, hardware store sales boom


Ike's killing my plans like a poisonous mushroom


Deadly, evacuate they tell me


Anyone left will be charged with a felony


Love it or hate it, you better get away


Ike will hit the bull's eye, the storm don't play


If you're on vacation, Yo, Ike stalled it


Check out the eye while the bands revolve it


Hurricane Ike Ike Baby, Hurricane Ike Ike Baby Hurricane Ike Ike Baby, Hurricane Ike Ike Baby

Now that the people are jumpin' With their stuff packed up and the gas done pumpin' Quick to the road, to the road no fakin' Pass McD's get a burger with bacon Burnin' 'em and follow the symbol I go crazy when I hear some imbecile Revving, in a souped up Pinto Now I can roll, it's time to crack the window Rollin' in my Chevy Tahoe With my window down, I can feel Ike blow My laptop's on standby, Waiting for some Wi-fi This spot hot? No - and I gotta fly Kept on pursuing to the next block I busted a left and I'm beating the clock The light was red

Yo -- so I continued to I-10 to San Antonio Wish I was there in a blink like a genie How I'd love to be sippin' a martini Jealous 'cause my girl's living fine She left yesterday and was there by nine Ready to give my homies a call My homies acting ill because their car just stalled Humidity, the air is sticky as hell Ike's on his way, the weatherman yells Moving toward the gulf coast real fast I'm in my car, can't give it no gas Bumper to bumper the interstate's packed I'm trying to get away before Ike attacks Police on the scene, what can it mean? They hooked me up, now there's another lane free If you're on vacation, Yo, Ike stalled it Check out the eye while the bands revolve it

Hurricane Ike Ike Baby, Hurricane Ike Ike Baby Hurricane Ike Ike Baby, Hurricane Ike Ike Baby

Yo man, let's get out of here! Word to your mother!

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
