As the hot summer fades,
and cool temperatures near.
The running season opens
and long runs are in gear.
Take time out of your training
and enjoy a group prost!
Bring yourself and your running shoes,
and give it your most.
I’ll be with you at the starting line
as we await the gun sound,
3,2,1 and we’re off in abound.
We started together,
now I’m gone without a trace.
I’ll have a beer waiting for you,
just don’t get last place.
You finish the race and you look worn out,
sweat drenching your clothes from your hard running bout.
Your face is perplexed,
as you look for your beer,
I have nothing to offer but a simple sneer.
Two empty bodies, two empty pints,
next time race faster and keep me in sight.
To all who race Oktoberfest and all of its prost,
drink, drink, drink, and race for the boast!
