Giddy Up

When I was only four years old
I'd ride my mama's broom
I'd chase those villains everywhere
Well, until she swept the room

She kept it in the kitchen corner
I called it his corral
Whenever trouble came to town
I'd reach for my best pal

Now every cowboy needs a horse
And mine was the best of all
Cause when he finished fighting crime
He cleaned up his own stall

Now Roy Rogers had his Trigger
And Tonto had his Scout
And though my horse never had a name
He was loyal without a doubt

I rode that stick horse everywhere
Until the vacuum took his place
A friend like that was hard to find
And impossible to replace

    I never would have thought of this, but I rode my mom's broom, too, pretending it was a horse. Very witty! Love the humor, Larry. Congrats on your success in the contest! Love, Carolyn
