Computer Cowboy

Who is my very best friend, with me to the end?
No doubt, you'll say, "Your horse, of course!"
Well, that was always true,
but now there's something new,
makin' such a mix-up in my mind.

I don't need up the saddle
when I want to travel;
the world is in my laptop job!
So many network nows
I've more contacts than cows,
but I hate to see my horse just stand and sob!

"You don't ride me anymore!
That computer, I deplore!
I surely hope your batteries run down!
Then you'll up on my back
to take our favorite track
to look for some good times in the town.
Oh my, oh my, oh me!
The way it used to be,
When there was just the two of us around!
We'd look up at the stars
as you smoked your cigars,
and I sure liked that huffin' puffin' noise
when there was just us boys.
But now, that clickin' keyboard sound
seems to come from all around;
the crickets are confused now same as me!"

Horse, no need to worry! But, don't be in a hurry,
I got to browse the World Wide Web tonite.
But, down there in the city, a gal who's powerful pritty;
spend time with her real soon, wait and see!

And, over on yonder mountains, is a gal installing fountains
that she faxed for at a real good price,
and she seems mighty nice;
so you'll get to do some climbing too, my friend!

Be, Please, a little patient, while I reformat my hard drive;
the time you're looking for will soon arrive.
Don't worry any more; more good times are in store!
and you'll say "Thank God that I'm alive!"

We'll share some mighty good weather, and then we'll sing together:

I AM A COMPUTER COWBOY, and I'M HIS NETWORK HORSE!
Together, we love livin' on the range!
Well, setting up a work station
where we eat our daily ration...
you might think it looks kinda strange.
But, gettin' on the Network
helps us out to get work,
so I guess, we are in favor of change!

So, Hallelujah for the Force,
our Divine Heavenly Source,
from a COMPUTER COWBOY and his NETWORK HORSE
