He fingers and squeezes,

The ladies he pleases

He smiles as he plays them his song

When his instrument's short they don't give him a thought

But  you should hear them gasp when it's long

 

Why, Mike, is this a call to arms?

 

Nice and a wee little bit on the raunchy side. What did you consume before you wrote this? May I have some? :D

 

I love Christine's final song, but it falls a little short of the cowboy stereotypes promised in her initial question. So here's another one put together real quick. Any takers for a melody below it? John (Anglo-Irishman)?  Jody? Anyone else?

Title: The So-No-WHAT?

 

 

His buddies are cowboys named Rodney and Curt
Their camo pajamas sport spurs
They breakfast on sawdust and spit in the dirt
If you look at them square you'll get hurt.

 

Himself, he's a sociable fellow
His manners polite and quite mellow
Yet all of the toughies will rush in and yell "Oh!"
When he starts working his bellow-s.

 

Chorus:
He's a So-No-Sonopneumatic
He doesn't ask rifles for answers
When he squeezes his box, the effect is dramatic:
See Rodney and Curt turn to dancers!

 

Now Curt fancies Betty and Rodney woes Sue
But the way to court both of the two
involves more than cursing and violent ado -
just see what our Hexman will do:


Chorus:
He's a So-No-Sonopneumatic
He don't need no saddle for leathers
When he fingers the buttons, the effect is ecstatic:
See Betty and sue dance like feathers!

 

Chorus:
He's a So-No-Sonopneumatic
You won't find him prodding no cows
When he pushes and pulls, the effect is climatic:
There's two couples pledging their vows!

 

(admittedly, the ending is a little corny, predictable and anticlimactic. I didn't put a whole lot of work into this. Anyone feel free to make the necessary adjustments!)

For the cowboy song, you might want to work in that classic phrase from Joey the Cow-Polka King (accordion player from Riders in the Sky) about "playing both ends against the middle".

Oh my! (clutches pearls). :)
