These Foolish Things

These Foolish Things
By Maz McCoy
(To the tune of These foolish things remind me of you)

An egg that stands on end and won’t fall over
The bust of Caesar that Big Mac fought over
A stage for Colorado springs
These foolish things
Remind me of you

A Bounty hunter who will stop at nothing
An outlaw leader who’s so good at bluffing
The song a lonesome cowboy sings
These foolish things
Remind me of you

A wanted poster offering ten thousand dollars
“Hold it right there fellas,” the sheriff hollers
A poker hand with just a pair of kings
These foolish things
Remind me of you

A Colt that’s drawn before the other guy sees it
Blue eyes that focus on his favourite Brit (me!)
The gun he skilfully slings
These foolish things
Remind me of you

A cowboy hat that sits at just the right angle
A job not-hard-on-the-back they hope to wrangle
Lom’s telegram a job it brings
These foolish things
Remind me of you

The hope of amnesty is so appealing
The thought of our two boys sends my heart a reeling
Oh how my heart has wings
These foolish things
Remind me of you
