Horrible Histories - The Cowboy Song LyricsWell, I'm a real life cowboyJust a quiet, humble fellaThat's what we're likeApart from MikeYeah, I'm more of a yeller! Sing songs to pass the eveningsAnd because it soothes the herdSo they won't stampedeUnless Mike sings leadAnd shouts every single word! (MIKE! )(Sorry! ) 'Cause we're cowboysReal-life cowboysNot like the ones you see on your TVWe've never held up banks at allWe're poorly paidAnd kinda smallIf you still wanna be a cowboyStick with me! On your horse for eighteen hoursAnd that saddle sore's a curseThen you feed your horseAnd yourself, of courseThough beans just make it worse! Then you're back driving cattleThat's what being a cowboy meansMoving those beasts from west to eastSorry, it's the beans! 'Cause we're cowboysReal-life cowboysNot like the ones you've seen in the moviesWe're not big hunks like that John Wayne'Cause our horses would complainIf you still wanna be a cowboyJoin us please! You should be awareWe have some customs that are strangeLike saying 'Howdy! ' not 'Hello' When you're out here on the rangeNever touch a cowboy's hatNever ride his horseSo what would happen if I took your old mare?Well, I'd shoot you, of course! (Fair enough! )Cowboys, Real-life cowboysNot like the ones you see on silver screensWe didn't go out starting fights'Cause unions fought for our rightsNow Mike will do a solo thanks to beans! (How was that?)(It stunk! )And now my friend, I fearThat the end is drawing near'Cause we only ruled the range for twenty years!
