Poor Texas, so sad
Worst Senator we’ve had
We hope he’ll leave soon
On a one way to Cancún

We get insulted
His rantings are so absurd
His biggest worry
Not Covid but Big Bird

Now we gotta please lose Ted Cruz
Gives us the Texas blues
Please Louise, Texas goes down on its knees
Jack, cut slack, Ted must be smoking some crack
Lose Ted Cruz, cure us of our Texas blues.

We’re suff’ring, not cool
Our Senator is a fool
No brains and no heart
We’re burnin’, yearnin for some
Somebody to tell us
This ain’t the best we can do
They’re trying to sell us
On some guy without a clue

We’d do great if we only would lose Ted Cruz
Kick him out with our shoes
Ooh-wee, Marie
Let this happen for me
Oh! Beto! This should have been your show!
Lose Ted Cruz!
See the end of our blues

Lose Ted Cruz, lose Ted Cruz, Lose Ted Cruz

First we got to send him back home
We don’t care if that’s Havana or Nome
If he only would leave, that’s our goal

He’s very obtuse! Ted Cruz!
For him we just got no use.
Please, Louise, Texas goes down on its knees!
Jack, cut slack, we need to see his back!
Lose Ted Cruz!
Let’s end the Texas blues!

Lose Ted Cruz
Gives us the Texas blues
Please Louise, Texas goes down on its knees
Jack, cut slack, Ted must be smoking some crack
Lose Ted Cruz, cure us of our Texas blues.

Texas gotta lose, Texas gotta lose
Texas gotta lose, Texas gotta lose
(Texas gotta) Texas gotta lose Ted Cruz!

“Footloose” is a song co-written and recorded by American singer-songwriter Kenny Loggins. It was released in January 1984 as the first of two singles by Loggins from the 1984 film of the same name, the other one being “I’m Free”.

The song spent three weeks at number one, March 31—April 14, 1984, on the US Billboard Hot 100, and was the first of two number-one hits from the film. Billboard ranked it at the No. 4 song for 1984.

The song was very well received, and is the most recognizable song recorded by Loggins. When the American Film Institute released its AFI’s 100 Years, “Footloose” reached the 96th position.

It was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Song at the 1985 ceremony, losing to Stevie Wonder’s “I Just Called to Say I Love You” from The Woman in Red.

The single version is slightly shorter in length compared to the album version. It begins with a soloed guitar track instead of a drum intro, and features more prominent backing vocals in the mix, particularly towards the end of the song.

In 2018, it was selected for preservation in the National Recording Registry by the Library of Congress as being “culturally, historically, or artistically significant.”

The song was covered by country music artist Blake Shelton for the 2011 remake of the 1984 film. Shelton’s version also appears on the film’s soundtrack. It charted at number 63 on the US Billboard Hot Country Songs chart in November 2011. A music video for Shelton’s version of the song, directed by Shaun Silva, premiered in October 2011.

The video opens with Blake Shelton driving a pickup truck into a drive-in theater screening of the 2011 remake of the 1984 movie wherein the manager and ticket seller tells him that the film was just about to start. He then enters the compound where his band awaits him while the theater patrons watch the film and take notice of him. Shelton and his band begin to perform the song and the theater patrons join in dancing while scenes from the film are played. If that sounds kind of lame, well, it was.The music video was filmed in early 2011 at the Hi-Way 50 Drive In theater located in Lewisburg, Tennessee.
