Humpty Dumpty rode on a horse
Humpty Dumpty fell off of course.
All the cowgirls and all the cowboys
Put Humpty Dumpty back with the toys.


Hey diddle, diddle, the cowboy and the fiddle
The longhorn jumped over the moon.
The prairie dog laughed to see such sport
And the bluebonnets are all in bloom.


This little pig went to the rodeo,
This little pig stayed home,
This little pig had barbecue,
This little pig had none,
This little pig said, "Yipee-yipee-yi"
All the way home.


Little Miss Muffet sat on a saddle
Eating her cowboy stew.
Along came an armadillo
And sat down beside her.
Now wouldn’t that frighten you?


There was an old woman who lived in a boot,
She had so many cowpokes she didn’t know what to do.
She gave them some beans without any chili.
She put them to bed because they were silly.


Diddle, diddle, dumpling, my son John.
Went to his bunk with his Levis on.
One boot on and one boot off,
Diddle, diddle, dumpling, my son John.
