The Lyrics

In the first part of his career
A thin young man was on TV
He was playing Rowdy on Rawhide
For an audience to see
Well Rawhide was showing in western Europe
Leone was watching it
He saw young Rowdy and then declared
"He'll make my Westerns a hit"

Clint Eastwood was featured as the Man With No Name
It felt good not to be Rowdy Yates
In Italy, he was a big superstar
And he became one in the United States

La la la la la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la la la la la

During filming in the desert sun
Clint was riding into town
And the locals insulted his mule
So he shot all the yokels down
He was looking for a fistful of dollars
And he wore a poncho that was brown

And so Clint Eastwood was featured as the Man With No Name
It felt good not to be Rowdy Yates
In Italy, he was a big superstar
And he became one in the United States

La la la la la la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la la la la la la

Morricone's music was first rate
Guitars and whistles sound so great
Clint won the battles but was in pain
And the movies were made in Spain
The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly is the best of
the spaghetti western films by far
Mr. Leone redefined a genre
and gave us a superstar

And so Clint Eastwood was featured as the Man With No Name
It felt good not to be Rowdy Yates
In Italy, he was a big superstar
And he became one in the United States

La la la la la la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la la la la la la
do do do do do WAH WAH WAH!

I know what you're thinking: "Did he give you a four rating or a full five?" Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement, I've forgotten myself. But seeing as how this is an IBM, the most powerful home computer in the world, and can help me rip several parodies clean off, you gotta ask yourself one question: "Does Mike think it's funny?" Well, do I, Tim? Yes, I do. So... Go ahead. Take my five!
