Cowboy's Life

A COWBOY'S LIFE

Traditional cowboy song

A cowboy's life is a weary, dreary life.
Some say it's free from care:
Rounding up the cattle from morning till night
In the middle of the prairie so bare.

Half past four the noisy cook will roar,
"Whoop-a-whoop-a-hey!"
Slowly you will rise with sleepy feeling eyes--
The sweet dreamy night has passed away.

The wolves and owls with their terrifying howls
Disturb us in our midnight dreams,
While we lie on our slickers on a cold, rainy night
Way over on the Pecos Stream.

Spring time sets in--double trouble will begin.
The weather is so fierce and cold
Our clothes are wet and frozen to our neck,
And the cattle we can scarcely hold.

A cowboy's life is a weary, dreary life.
He's driven through the heat and cold,
While the rich man is sleeping on his velvet couch,
Dreaming of his silver and gold.



U BOVI-AN BIO

U traditio bovi-an kanta

U bovi-an bio es ex fo-fatiga.
Oligo dic; es minus noku:
Kolekti panto bovi meso vaku landa,
Kolekti mu matin a noktu.

Kron horo tetr u kuko-pe fu voci;
Wup-a-wup-a-he!
Vi lento sti vigi ko bi somni oku--
U gluko noktu spende se.

Na sonia gene sto per plu deino voci
De plu bubo e lupus.
Na kumbe epi gumi tem plu pluvi noktu
Tele topo fluvi Pekos.

U blasto-tem nu ven e sti u diplo turba.
U meteo es tali frigi,
Plu vesti es humid e ge-geli a na kola--
Na proxi lose bovi e vigi.

U bovi-an bio es ex fo-fatiga.
An ergo dia term e venti,
Tem plu pluto-pe somni epi luxu kli
Tem sonia de plu kriso e argenti.
