Planet Texas (Kenny Rogers)

They rode like they was Rangers When they came out of the skies They had high-tech horses With beacons in their eyes My gun was cocked and ready When I looked into their face I seen they weren't just common buckaroos Born of the human race No, sir, these cowboys came from space Their shootin' irons shot laser light And their spurs was anodized Bandannas caked with stardust And their jeans was pressurized Well, he handed me a halter And said, "Tighten up the girth" But before I hit the saddle We were miles above the Earth And I mean miles above the Earth Yippie-aye-ay-e I seen London, Paris Budapest, Kashmir and Tokyo And there ain't no sight Like a desert night looking down on Mexico Through the moons of Mars and Jupiter 'Round Saturn's rings we rode Past the frozen plains of Pluto Where even the sunshine's cold Man, I do mean cold Then our interstellar stallions Sailed through the starless void There was nothing to miss in that emptiness Not even a stray asteroid 'Til we picked up the trail of a comet's tail Man, you can't even dream that far And the gallopin' beat Like the rhythm of an old catgut guitar Just a-strummin' from the distant star Yippie-aye-ay-e Well, it could've lasted minutes Or a hundred thousand years But they got me down I was safe and sound And it hadn't even popped my ears And they rared back on their broncos And they shot a bolt of light I knew they were the good guys Yes sir, you got it right 'Cause their cowboy hats was white So ask 'em as they pulled their reins Towards the settin' sun "Before you go, I'd like to know Just where you boys come from?" Well, they opened up a star chart and said "Right here where this 'X' is It's the biggest place in outer space A planet known as Texas." Yippie-aye-ay-e Yippie-aye-ay-e Yippie-aye-ay-e Yippie-aye-ay-e
