Rodeo Joe

 

Can you hear them chanting,

from the stands with just one voice;

Come on. Ride ‘em, Cowboy!”

You’ve really got no choice.

 

I’ll stand here, let you on my back

I’ll not give advanced alarm,

but once I’m out there in that ring,

you're gonna suffer harm!

 

Up now in the saddle,

clinging tightly to those reins;

you’re ready to beat anything,

adrenalin floods in your veins.

 

I’ll let you gain your confidence,

I’ll let you find your feet;

you won’t know what has hit you,

for you, I will defeat.

 

You’re feeling kind of cheated now,

not challenged here at all,

for that horse it has deceived you

into thinking you won’t fall.

 

Okay, it’s time. I’ve had enough,

I’ll kick, I’ll buck, I’ll charge.

You’re heading for embarrassment,

a downfall – one so large.

 

The chanting has begun again,

Ride ‘im, Cowboy,” they do say,

this horse has clearly had enough

and now it wants it’s way.

 

Oh, cling on tight, for all you’ve got,

you’re almost now defeated;

my victory is almost done

once you I have unseated.

 

You’re feeling every single jolt,

from your feet right up your back,

the world, it rocks from side to side

those reins have now gone slack.

 

You thought you’d break me to your will,

hell, I will not be tamed,

today I’ve sent you sprawling,

an equine victory I’ve claimed.

 

You’ve landed in the sawdust

and you are high-pitched when you talk,

you struggle up on to your feet,

not sure if you can walk.

 

I’ll eye you from a distance

and I’ll give a snort of laughter,

for let’s say for your dignity

It’s been a real disaster.

 

From the crowd there’s claps and jeers,

you go pick up your hat,

defeated by that stallion --

there’s no disputing that!
