Another Jackalope Tail From Cody Wyoming

(NOTE: Grandad wrote several of these "Jackalope" themed pieces.)

I dug out my old trust rope
And caught myself a Jackalope

I didn’t know if he’d been rode
I thought perhaps I might get throwed

But he was gentle as could be
He didn’t even buck with me

He needs no gas, no oil, no lube
Not even oats, just rabbit food

He nibbles grass from dusk till dawn
And fertilizes my dumb lawn

And when with him I’m finally through
I’ll have myself some rabbit stew

Another Jackalope Tail From Cody Wyoming

I went out back to look around
And met this Jackalope pawing the ground

He growled so loud I thought I’d been had
So I climbed my shed ‘cause he surely was mad

I thought I’d stay there till he went away
He kept me up there for two nights and a day

He finally gave up and decided to go
And I fell in a heap right there in the snow

I was so cold I hardly could talk
It sure hurt my legs to get up and walk

Now when I go out I surely do hope
I won’t meet up with that mad Jackalope

Another Revoltin' Development: The Old Boy Lost Out Again

I’m feeling awfully sad today
Things sure went wrong for me
My tears are both so full of eyes
I just can’t hardly see

I thought I had it figured out
So she would fulfill my wishes
By doing windows, floors and laundry
And wish up all my dishes

I’d even let her pay the rent
The light bill and TV
I’d also let her cook some meals
And take good care of me

She was sure a neat old chick
But she messed up my plan
Instead of coming home with me
She ran off with the dumb milk man

I’ll stay away from all those widows
With them I shall not mingle
I don’t care if they’re rich or poor
I’ll go on being single

The Countdown is on One and Holding

I’m really doing OK now
I’m busy as a bee
I’m eliminating some of them each day
On some days two or three

I’m checking out each single one
To find how rich they are
I eliminate the poor ones, and
I’m doing fine so far

I’ve saved the richest one till last
I sure am having fun
The checking them is over now
I’ve got them down to one

The only one that is left now
Is sure a neat old chick
If I can bring her home with me
That will be a darn good trick
