Wanna Be

This week for Song Lyric Sunday Jim has asked us to choose a song that includes, cowboys, horses, gun, hat, and western. The first song that came to my mind was. “I Wanna be a Cowboy” by Boys Don’t Cry.  Sure, it’s an oldie but then, so am I.


I Wanna Be A Cowboy lyrics © Peermusic Publishing



Riding on the range,
I’ve got my hat on,
I’ve got my boots dusty.

I’ve got my saddle
On my horse.
He’s called… T-t-t-t-t-trigger
Of course.

I want to be a cowboy
And you can be my cowgirl
I want to be a cowboy
And you can be my cowgirl
I want to be a cowboy

Riding on the chuck wagon,
Following my man.
His name is Ted,
