The Rodeo Clown

I’m the unsung hero standing
Out here on the floor.
My job it is important and quite a
Dangerous chore.
My adrenaline starts kicking when I
Hear the crowd roar.
I’m the rodeo clown and I perform a
Side show on the floor.

Eight seconds are a lifetime when your
Riding on a bull.
No matter which bull you draw it’s an
Unpredictable duel.
As I watch behind this barrel I wonder
Who’s the bigger fool.
I’m the rodeo clown and I protect the
Rider from the bull.

Rodeo Dreams

The bulls and the clowns
The ups and the downs
He’s hooked on this eight-second ride
The spurs and the blood
The dust and the mud
This will be his first time to ride
His one chance at stardom
His one chance at fame
She doesn’t want him playin this game
She told him no, but he just had to go
On with his rodeo dreams
Just him and his rodeo dreams
The golden belt buckles
The cowboy’s white knuckles
Maybe he won’t take the fall
The black cowboy hats
The boots and the chaps
He ended with the worst mark of all
His one chance at stardom
His one chance at fame
She doesn’t want him playin this game
She told him no, but he just had to go
On with his rodeo dreams
Just him and his rodeo dreams
The last time she saw him, he was ridin that bull
Now that he’s gone no one will ever know about
His one chance at stardom
His one chance at fame
She doesn’t want him playin this game
She told him no, but he just had to go
On with his rodeo dreams
Just him and his rodeo dreams
She told him no, but he had to go
On with his rodeo dreams
Just him and his rodeo dreams
