ride day

a saddle
on the sun
and let’s go
ride
the sky

black above
and blue below
yee-ha
yee-ha yee-ha

bridle
in your hands
stirrup
hold your legs

cowboy
put
your hat on

you better
put your hat on now

and ride
we’ll ride
right across the sky
ride in a saddle
on a star
we’ll ride
our star yee-ha

yee-ha yee-ha

climb aboard
low
somewhere near
beginning
of the eastern sky

ride all day
into the west
then
yee-ha again

we’ll let the sun
go to bed
and keep ourselves
a memory
of the day we rode

yee-ha
yee-ha yee-ha
