...we're in Norman, home of the University of Oklahoma, it's great;
just a few mile shy of Oklahoma City, Capitol of the state,
It's the birthplace of James Garner and lots of others too.
There's a sign out there that says "we welcome you."
Ol’ Larry was in Norman for a short school
Aviation fundamentals is was so cool
He learned about math from fractions to algebra
Catalogs, parts books and all et cetera,
It still kind of like boot camp at least in part
Marching to classes, not falling apart.
There was duty to stand every third night,
He worked at the roller rink, that was all right
And one time he was treated to a live band
Bill Haley and the Comets, boy it was grand
That wouldn’t happen for another long time
That’s how he spent Spring, nineteen fifty-nine
