Yikes McGee: Songs

The Cowboy President

(Yikes McGee)
A tall tale, with a cameo by Condoleeza.
THE COWBOY PRESIDENT

(Intro.)
He’s the cowboy president, but he wears a black hat
In America, can’t get away with that
On the eve of destruction again, and he’s got the knack
He’s the cowboy president, but he wears a black hat

He come into town with a chip on his shoulder
His cowboy boots made him feel tall
He said by proclamation, there’s a new order
And I am the leader of all.

He wore a pair of six-shooters, a bowie knife and a rifle
And a derringer stashed in his boot
He said, "ya‘ll drop your weapons,
I’m here to disarm you,
Don’t give me a reason to shoot."

Everyone protested
They all turned against him
Said, just who do you think you are?
He said many are good, but many are evil
And I am the Avatar.

They all drew and fired, he yelled "Condoleeza,
If yer with me then blast ‘em to hell
She came ridin’ sidesaddle, shouting out orders
Twirling two pistols remarkably well.

When it was over there was nuthin’ left standin’
Nuthin’ movin’; nuthin’ to say,
They drove the prisoners east
To the boats for their hangin’
On the gallows overlookin’ Guantanamo Bay

(Epilogue)
He’s the cowboy president, but he wears a black hat.
In Old America you’d never get away with that.
With an ego the size o’ Texas, and his brand on Iraq
He’s the cowboy president, but he wears a black hat.
