The Lyrics

Where else could we find a cowboy who sings in his underpants suing a piece of candy for impersonating him? America - still the land of opportunity :) References: Original story, some background info, and a Wiki article.

A low-bitrate mp3 of the song can be found here.
I hear talkin’: “Does he belong?”
Six strings hide shame - my prong
Bestow underdaks as I’m working Times Square a bawd way
To muscles of fame I lay claim
Them ice skies get shrinkage - they throw less dough - what a pain
Sometimes my toes - they need de-icin’
I don’t moan ‘cos I’m enticin’
And those ladies, see that their night’s designs are on me

Yike! A Naked Cowboy
Sidle out - like God, norse - with my buff-wrangled axe in tow
I’m the Naked Cowboy
Don’t find hard impressin’ the people - I put on a show
I’m always strummin’ over my bone

Well then, recently, mind enflamed
Lawsuit filed - with pride, I complained
I’m renowned - yet I find M&Ms are makin' me dis-mayed
‘Cos I screamed when the one that’s blue
Dressed up like this bloke and therefore en-dorsement tacit: ensued
There'll be a load of legalizin’
Sue the pants off corp’rate guys, an’
Then they’re gonna feel none too bright when lookin’ like me!

I’m the Naked Cowboy
Scaring Asian tourists - running right back to Tokyo
Naked Cowboy
With regard I’m better than people like ol’ Garth and Tobe’
Don’t scoff bud, ‘cos I’m never alone...

I’m the Naked Cowboy
Striding out, no remorse, since out I sprang from Ohio

I’m the Naked Cowboy
If’n hard times, fall on - then maybe I’ll sue Oreo...

Ah, what a nice tribute to Bobby Burck, AKA the Naked Cowboy! The guy works hard, in all kinds of weather, even in the snow, and he's out there every day. (He's not entirely naked, BTW--he wears BVD's the cap, and of course, cowboy boots--where he stores the dollar bills the lady tourists give him.) It's always fun to watch the tourists in Times Square gawk at him. If M&M's wants to rip off his idea, they should give him a cut.

"Sue the pants off" - Nice touch, hobbits. The news and Wiki links you put in were good even though they were a bit brief. I've seen this guy on the news doing his thing in the dead of a New York winter which I'm sure put the frost on the old pumpkin. Great write!

Cowboy Dearest, could you at least put on a pair of Chaps, Sir ? . . . PS: are you better than Tim Mc Graw ??

Nice, funny write, M&P. Well I know the song, even if I haven't caught his act. 5's (btw) has anyone ever listened to see if he's any good in that department? ;)

Adagio, I wouldn't care if he wasn't that good - there's always earplugs ;) Thanks for the links. Great job ! Hmm..wonder if he eats the green ones...

An excellent topic, well referenced, and very well spoofed. But I hope the hobbits don't sue M&Ms if they make this parody part of their next advertising campaign.

Sure! If they want to cut us in for a slice :)
