Beware! It is Red October,
Be vigilant, and be sober!
The tide is about to change,
The stars will be rearranged –
Things of yesterday are dead
This is going to spin your head!
No longer will we be in despair
At work, or play, or in prayer –
You will not need to guess
About the gnawing emptiness!
Beware! It’s an October tide,
Your hearts will burst with pride!
And to God we humbly pray…
“Red October” you saved the day.
