Swing Your Lasso
Swing your lasso round and round
higher, higher off the ground,
upward, upward toward the sky.
Catch a comet sailing by.
Tightly, tightly, hold on tight,
pulling, pulling out of sight.
Riding, riding on a star.
Saddle straddled, floating far.
Faster, faster sailing on.
Going, going, going, gone!
Rope it! Reach it! Ride it! Race!
That’s how cowboys get to space.
