Yodeling Cowgirls lyrics

Whatever happened to the yodeling cowgirls
The road across super screen
Once you over hall and now love the boys
You roll the ring and tex and jeans

Whatever happened to the yodeling cowgirls
That I'm till ya to know
They could still re-found
A matter come it down
Then put the song in yodeling show when make a (yodeling)

Whatever happened to the yodeling cowgirls
The once you used to dress up cute
With three changing down and rides to around
The more to the cowboy's news

Whatever happened to the yodeling cowgirls
They must be a list walk out
But I'm till I found the word
And gonna have some fun
And do the yodeling myself (yodeling)

I can't forget the yodeling cowgirls
The road across super screen
Once you over hall and now love the boys
You roll the ring and tex and jeans

I won't forget the yodeling cowgirls
That I'm till ya to know
They could still re-found
A matter come it down
Then put the song in yodeling show when make a (yodeling)

Very good ear Ming! I'm amazed that you can get it so close with English as a second language! Very Happy

Here's what I came up with...

----------------------------------------------------------------

Whatever happened to the yodeling cowgirls
That rode across the silver screen
The ones who rode with Roy and all the other boys
Who rode the range with Tex and Gene

Whatever happened to the yodeling cowgirls
That I'm too young to know
They could still be found
I bet they come to town
And put us on a yodeling show
And they go...

(yodeling)

Whatever happened to the yodeling cowgirls
The ones who used to dress so cute
With fringe hanging down and rhinestones around
Their multicolored cowboy boots

Whatever happened to the yodeling cowgirls
There must be at least one left
But until I find that one
I'm gonna have some fun
And do the yodeling myself

(yodeling)

I can't forget those yodeling cowgirls
That rode across the silver screen
The ones who rode with Roy and all the other boys
Who rode the range with Tex and Gene

I won't forget those yodeling cowgirls
That I'm too young to know
They could still be found
I bet they come to town
And put us on a yodeling show
And they go...

(yodeling)
(AMAZING yodeling!!) Very Happy

----------------------------------------------------------

Ming, when the lyrics talk about Roy and Tex and Gene, they are referring to the old time cowboy yodelers from the 40's and 50's, Roy Rogers, Tex Ritter, and Gene Autry.

wow, the lyrics of this song have some knowledge. thank you Bob for teaching me. Smile i don't know anything about country music because there is almost no media to broadcast this kind of music in hong kong and most of the hong kong people don't listen to these old english country music. hong kong teenagers like listening to english pop music or cantonese/mandarin pop music. and adults and elders like listening to cantonese opera or old cantonese music.

thank you cow109 for your appreciation. Smile

i think my english is okay when i'm using internet. if i use english to do my homework, or test or exam, my academic grade isn't excellent. and i don't speak too much english because i have not many opportunity to talk with english speakers or foreigners.

Ming, I agree with Ory, your English is very good! If you can practice on the internet it will help your English studies in school. The only problem is that there is much slang on the internet, and many people use terrible spelling and grammar, so that probably doesn't help you.

Do you watch YouTube in Hong Kong? We'd love to see a video of popular cantonese/mandarin pop music or opera, if you can find one or two for us! Very Happy

Thanks Ming! Very Happy

I was never a fan of opera, but I like your opera better than our opera because the music is much easier for my ears to listen to. It tells a tragic story though, ending in death, much like our opera.

Your other links were great! I especially liked Joey Yung, the first link was a beautiful song partly in English, and who could not like her version of Amazing Grace? She really has a pretty voice. Many singers sing that song, even Taylor! She sang it on her 1st cd. Very Happy

Thanks for the samples of your music! It is very interesting! Very Happy

The part of "AMAZING yodeling" is really true!! I love the end of this music, and it's one of the best yodels of Taylor! It doesn't need to have many tricks with the voice... just needs to be very confident while singing, and that is what Taylor is in this music. I love it!

Sometimes, when I am listening to this music along my playlist, I open my player and push back to the part where the final yodeling starts Smile it's awesome!

I like that end yodeling because it's impossible to listen to it and not feel happy. You can really feel Taylor's energy and spirit. Very Happy
