I got the horse right here, the name is Paul Revere.

And here's a guy that says that if all weather's clear,

Can do, can do, this guy says the horse can do.

If he says the horse can do, can do, can do.

I picked the Valentine, cause on the Morning Line,

The guy has got em figured at five to nine

But take the Epitaph, he went to buy a half,

He's got it cold in here in the Telegraph.

About Rivera's fight, I guess the sport's alright

Suppose it all depends if it rained last night.

I know it's Valentine, the morning works were fine

You know the jockey's brother is a friend of mine

But just a minute, boys, I got the feedback's choice,

It says the great grandfather was Aqua Poise.

I give you Paul Revere, and it's no bum steer

It's from a man right here that's real sincere

I picked my Valentine cause on the Morning Line

The guy has got em figured at five to nine

But take the Epitaph, he went to buy a half,

He's got it cold in here in the Telegraph.

Epitaph, Valentine, Paul Revere, I got the horse right here.
