Rose of the ICC Lyrics
The bright sun was rising above the tall mountains
The heat was abundant for all in AZ
But a castle in Phoenix housed prizes and wonder
And it was the home of the Rose of the ICC
She was spunky and kind
Like the warmth of the summer
But twas not her suntan alone that won me
Oh no twas the sass like a Saguraro’s stature
That made me love AZ and
The Rose of the ICC
