Cowboy Lyrics
The old man used to frequent drink
Of liquid lightning that Would make him see an elephant
A-roosting on his hat. Now Willie takes a soda and
It overcomes his brain; The soda has an easy job
Is also very plain.
The old man used to wear his shirt
For comfort, not for fit, And many months would pass away
Before he would shed it. Now Willie dons a frilled concern,
And changes every morn, And wears a cuff around his neck
His paw would laugh to scorn.
And thus you'll note the difference
'Tween Willie and his dad; It is the truth, altho' 'twould make
'Most anyone feel sad; For Willie's parent was a man,
Tho' rough and tough and rude; But Willie is that aching void,
The sappy, modern dude.
[20]
