Down the Old Ox Road
Lyrics and Meaning


Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
There's a famous thoroughfare
I've heard collegiates say
I'm not referring to Piccadilly
It's not 42nd Street
Verse 2
It's not the rue de la Paix
Nor is it Market Street in Philly
Ask most any college Romeo
To complete your education you must go....
Verse 3
Down the old ox road
Though you'll never find where it is
By looking in maps
With a little investigation you'll discover perhaps
Verse 4
That this old tradition's not a place
But just a proposition called
The old ox road
The old ox road
Verse 5
Ox road could be any romantic spot
A country highway or a moonlit yacht
It could be in the parlor
When the lights are burning low
Verse 6
It could be in the movie
In the very last row
Verse 7
Down the old ox road
In the magic of the moonlight
You are filled with delight
While the leaves that flutter o'er you
Verse 8
Whisper lover tonight
Why keep waiting, and debating
When you know it's time for mating
Verse 9
On the old ox road
On the old ox road
