  4. Rattler Charge

    When the dark clouds gather on the horizon,
    When thunder and lightning pierce the skies,
    When fate is but a glare in the eye of a fallen Rattler,
    and hope….a lost friend,
    When the sinew of the chest grows weary from those hard charging linebackers,
    And the muscles in the legs grow tired from those hard charging runningback,
    You must always remember….the Rattlers will
    STRIKE!!!
    STRIKE!!!
    AND STRIKE AGAIN!!!
