Down the Old Ox Road

by Bing Crosby

Harry Lillis "Bing" Crosby (May 3, 1903 – October 14, 1977) was an American singer and actor. Crosby's trademark bass-baritone voice made him one of the best-selling recording artists of the 20th century, with over half a billion records in circulation.

There's a famous thoroughfare
I've heard collegiates say
I'm not referring to Piccadilly
It's not 42nd Street

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....

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

That this old tradition's not a place 
But just a proposition called
The old ox road
The old ox road

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

It could be in the movie 
In the very last row

Down the old ox road
In the magic of the moonlight 
You are filled with delight
While the leaves that flutter o'er you 

Whisper lover tonight
Why keep waiting, and debating
When you know it's time for mating 

On the old ox road
On the old ox road
