The Night That Eight Belles Died

From "and then the training takes over..."

Our little girl was also three
The night that Eight Belles died
Cheering on the only filly
How could I explain this

Fa fa fa fa
Fa fa fa fa
Fa fa fa fa fa
On the night that Eight Belles Died

Fa fa fa fa
Fa fa fa fa
Fa fa fa fa fa
On the night that Eight Belles Died

Sixteen to one
At the Derby
And oh, could she run
Did you see how she won
The Honeybee Stakes

But it was Big Brown
Big Brown
All the way
At Churchill Downs
He made a three wide move
Around the far turn
And opened up down the lane

But out the gate she raced
Close to the pace
And a couple lengths down on the backstretch
Then she rallied and turned for home
By the eighth pole
There was only one left she could not catch

Fa fa fa fa
Fa fa fa fa
Fa fa fa fa fa
On the night that Eight Belles Died

Fa fa fa fa
Fa fa fa fa
Fa fa fa fa fa
On the night that Eight Belles Died

Dr. Bramalge standing on the sidelines
Give us some news
Dr. Bramalge standing on the sidelines

The heart of a
Heart of a
Heart of a locomotive
The ankles of
Ankles of
Ankles of champagne flutes

The heart of a
Heart of a
Heart of a locomotive
The ankles of
Ankles of
Ankles of champagne flutes

Fa fa fa fa
Fa fa fa fa
Fa fa fa fa fa
On the night that Eight Belles Died

Fa fa fa fa
Fa fa fa fa
Fa fa fa fa fa
On the night that Eight Belles Died
