COWBOY FROM BROOKLYN From the film "Cowboy From Brooklyn" (1938) (Johnny Mercer / Harry Warren) Dick Powell (Film Soundtrack) - 1938 Jimmy Dorsey & His Orch. (vocal: Ray McKinley) - 1938 Glenn Miller & His Orch. (vocal: Tex Beneke) - 1938 Tommy Dorsey & His Orch. - 1938 Bunny Berigan & The Rhythmakers - 1938 When I was just a little shaver back in Brooklyn I always thought that I would like to be a cowboy Because I loved to see 'em in the movin' pictures A-ridin' and a-shootin' away And so as I grew up I saved a lotta money I bought a saddle and I bought a buckin' bronco I said goodbye to all the fellas back in Brooklyn And I went to Arizona one day But I'll tell you, Pard, I worked so hard And ev'rybody played so rough That they always had me waitin' on the table Sweepin' out the stable and stuff ! And so I sold my saddle and my buckin' bronco And you won't ever catch me near another cowboy 'Cause I can always see 'em in the movin' pictures A-ridin' and a-shootin' away Okay ! But I belong in Brooklyn Hangin' 'round the drugstore 'Roundin' up the sodas all day (Contributed by Ferda Dolunay - November 2004)
