Shut Up And Cowboy Up

Shut Up And Cowboy Up

My dad could wear gloves out in a week

Funny thing, he expected the same from me

He said nothing gets done while you sleep

One hot humid day before I could shave

 I threw my shovel heading for the shade

I yelled I’m not your personal slave

When I was done flapping my tongue… I got an earful from a man I love

He yelled, shut up and cowboy up… Quit pissing like a half grown pup

When I was on the football team

I had a teenage a half-baked dream

 Of a scholarship at the University

But when the coach saw me loafing

Then getting flagged for trash talking

Then tossed out for bitching and moaning

When I was done flapping my tongue… I got an earful from a man I loved

He yelled, shut up and cowboy up… Quitting pissing like a half grown pup

I got a good job at the factory

With over time seven days a week

It left me with no time to dance or drink

My boss caught me sound asleep

In the restroom at the factory

I claimed I was sick, he laughed at me

When I was done flapping my tongue… I got an earful from a man I loved

He yelled, shut up and cowboy up… Quit pissing like a half grown pup

Now I own my own company… It seems all I do is give the speech
