A Cane And A High Starched Collar
Cowboy, cowboy marry me

I'll bake you a cherry pie

Well thank you very kindly mam

But I'm too young to die



Hi-lo-do-si-dosy-do

Stay single and save a dollar

Come Saturday night I'll court a pretty girl

With a cane and a high starched collar



Cowboy if you'll marry me

I'll be your darling Jenny

Now why should I drink from just one well

When I can drink from twen'y



Hi-lo-do-si-dosy-do

Stay single and save a dollar

Come Saturday night I'll court a pretty girl

With a cane and a high starched collar



Cowboy, cowboy name the day

July 'd be nice I reckon

Gladly meet you at the church

July the 32nd



Hi-lo-do-si-dosy-do

Stay single and save a dollar

Come Saturday night I'll court a pretty girl

With a cane and a high starched collar



You sleep all day and spoon all night

And eat your favorite chow

Then why should I get married mam

That's what I'm doing now



Hi-lo-do-si-dosy-do

Stay single and save a dollar

Come Saturday night I'll court a pretty girl

With a cane and a high starched collar
