I suppose our band is corny,
and our plight about as thorny,
as a Bishop getting horny.
That’s a bit.
Now John Wayne is bold and dashing,
and friend Clint is big on smashing,
and they both are really cashing
in on it.
The guitar I play beautif’ly,
I quaff my beers down dutif’ly
and play poker quite fruitfully
when I sit.
When required my firearm shooting
at the bandits who are looting
will just leave the children hooting
quite a bit.
It’s for peanuts that we’re playing
that’s despite skill we’re displaying
so if they do not start paying
I shall quit.
