Don't Come the Cowboy With Me Sonny Jim
Kirsty MacColl Lyrics


(kirsty maccoll)

Some boys with warm beds and cold, cold hearts
Can make you feel nothing at all
They'll never remember and they'll never mind
If you're counting the cracks in the wall
They're quick and they're greedy
They never feel guilty
They don't know the meaning of hurt
The boots just go back on
The socks that had stayed on
The next time they see you
They treat you like dirt
The next time they treat you like dirt

Now don't come the cowboy with me sonny jim
I know lots of those and you're not one of them
There's a light in your eyes tells me somebody's in
And you won't come the cowboy with me

Don't be too rough on my cold, cold heart
It's all I've got left to me now
I fell out of favour with heaven somewhere
And I'm here for the hell of it now
Some girls play cowboys
And some boys play harder to get
But they're got just the same
They smile and say cheese
They're so eager to please
But they'll never remember your name
The names and the places all change

But don't come the cowboy with me sonny jim
I know lots of those and you're not one of them
There's a light in your eyes tells me somebody's in
And you won't come the cowboy with me

Did somebody tell you I'm lonely as hell?
I didn't expect you to know me so well
If I learned a lesson it's how to bounce back again
Sometimes I bounce off the wall
And sometimes my head hits the floor

So don't come the cowboy with me sonny jim
I know lots of those and you're not one of them
There's a light in your eyes tells me somebody's in
And you won't come the cowboy, oh
Don't come the cowboy with me sonny jim
I know lots of those and you're not one of them
There's a light in your eyes tells me somebody's in
And you won't come the cowboy with me

The world is poorer without Kirsty in it. At least we were left with brilliance such as this. Rest In Peace Kirsty MacColl.

Bill Hicks

You are right there. Such a massive and tragic loss of a beautiful, sweet and talented human.

She was insanely beautiful. It hurts me to use the past tense.

Bill Hicks

Absolutely. The heartbreak never eases. Insanely beautiful in every way it seems. Such a senseless loss.

The boots just go back on the socks that stayed on... Quality!

It's cousin lyric is in the song "AutumnGIrlSoup" from Tropical Brainstorm. "It's a recipe handed down from father to son for a thousand years and it goes with those hot salt tears"

Rain

Such a brilliant lyric! Puts perfectly an image in your head all the while saying so much with such a few words.
