"Who'll Grab the Reins?"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

On this Conestoga, the reins are floppin' 'round;
Boundin' unbound horses cruisin' across the ground.
Bad men are chasin' us, firin' their six guns.
We have blundered, and I wonder: who'll grab the reins?

I bent down, searching fer leather straps that stop a horse
'cause we're now not able to keep the nags on course.
I fear that that loose wheel's just one of our banes.
We were dumber. . . got no guns, er, who'll grab the reins?

Herd cannot be reined in, and so we are sore.
A crowd, they rush together, like a lemming swarm.
Now it's rainin' horses, wagon wheels, and gear,
And we're grumblin' as we're tumblin' off crag terrain.

I also thought it would be about the 2008 election at first. Where's Santa Claus when you really need him?

Thanks, Alvin, AFW, 2Eagle, Michael. Seems there would be a good political take on this, what with reins, reign, Reag'n. . . .
