Paniolo cowboy in a field of sugar cane
Once there was a forest where they hid there in the rain
Cowboy bowboy cowboy
Wanderin wahine under locks of raven hair
Beads of inspiration
Hoping he would not forget just where
Heyup cowboy

Up above the canopy in the highest branches of a tree
He would take her longingly and say One day you'll belong to me

I forgot to mention it was nineteen forty-one
Zeros kept a-comin like to blanket out the sun
Cowboy cowboy

So they lay suspended dreaming of some kind of god
With their limbs akimbo and extended to the mind of God
Cowboy

And the night without regret says it's time to let your hair down low
There they lay in silhouette he would say I'd stay yet have to go

King Kamehameha met with Captain Cook uopn the shore
Lookin at all the cattle asked him
What the hell are all these for?
Cowboy cowboy cowboy
Gone now is the forest and the lovers of the trees
Now there is a chorus playing golf who say in Japanese
Kau-boi
