Masters theme has lyrics?!?

One of my go-to daily visits online - and also to follow on Twitter - are the great people who run Awful Announcing. The broadcasting aspect of sports has always been fascinating to me, having done it at one time in my life (hopefully no Harvey people have old footage they'd like to share from my play-by-play days), and their work on sports broadcasting is very well done.

Awful Announcing had a great piece recently - one which seemed relevant as I write this on Masters Sunday - unearthing this little-known fact:

The iconic Masters theme has lyrics.

I'll let Awful Announcing tell the story at the above link, but they're spot on - the lyrics really drain the life from a great piece of sports music. Whoever thought it was better to let the instrumental stand alone is very bright.
