Way out west, in a nest from the rest, dwelt the bestest little Bronco Boy.
He could ride, he could glide o'er the prairies like an arrow.
Every maid in the glade was afraid he would trade his little heart away,
So each little peach made a nice little speech of love to him;
Pony Boy, Pony Boy, won't you be my Tony Boy?
Don't say no. Here we go: off across the plains.
Marry me, carry me right away with you.
Giddy up, giddy up, giddy up, Whoa! My Pony Boy.
