Daddy Steve: It's just another day out on the range (a.k.a the backyard) for cowboys Bowie and Pete Dakota...
Bowie and Pete Dakota (singing):
I'm an old cowhand, from the Rio Grande
But my legs ain't bowed and my cheeks ain't tan
I'm a cowboy who never saw cow
Never roped a steer 'cause I don't know how
Sure ain't fixing to start in now
Oh, yippie yi yo kayay, yippie yi yo kayay
Pete Dakota: My legs might not be bowed, but I do know all about ropin'.
Bowie: Is that a fact? Well, why don't you prove it by ropin' that critter over yonder.
Pete: I'll do just that. Now watch, sonny, and get educated.
Bowie: I declare, that wasn't half bad ropin'.
Pete: Let's see you try it now, tenderfoot. If'n you can.
Bowie: If'n I can? Oh pardner, you'll be eatin' that ten gallon hat after you've seen me rope yonder critter. Here goes!
Pete: Well, shucks, if'n that ain't some mighty fine ropin'. Put'er there, pardner.
These two cowboys were having a mighty good time. The 'critter over yonder,' however, was not the least bit amused...
Anthony: Alright you two! Enough of that horseplay! Untie me now!
