A Cowgirl's Kiss
Author: Ben Laney


Sweeter than Texas melon
Sweeter than peach cobbler pie
Sweeter than golden honey
made by bees in paradise

A Cowgirl's kiss
Talkin' about
A Cowgirl's kiss
If there's anything
that can bring a Cowboy bliss
It's a Cowgirl's kiss

Hotter than jalapenos
Hotter than chile peppers, too
Hotter than the Mojave
in mid-July at high noon

Softer than springtime clover
Softer than a summer rose
Softer than Georgia cotton
that's used to make baby's clothes

One will buckle your knees
Two and you're on the floor
Three takes your sanity
Four and your heart's flyin'
straight up through Heaven's door

A Cowgirl's kiss
Talkin' about
A Cowgirl's kiss
If there's anything
that can bring a Cowboy bliss
It's a Cowgirl's kiss

------- Author's Notes -------

I walked into Walmart on Saturday wearin' just my polka-dotted boxers and my Cowboy boots. I went there to buy some spearmint candy because I was all out. Then, just as I was spotted by security and saw they were coming for me, I thought; "If I was a Cowboy, I wouldn't be here lookin' for spearmint now, would I?" As I was running out of Wally World, evading the security guys, the idea for A Cowgirl's Kiss popped into my mind. Other than that, the day was really boring. I hope you like this one!!****Love & Whirled Peas,Ben

Being From Texas, I believe every word, except...,

Brother, Ben, Yep, as you know, I was born and raised in Texas, so, I know, about a Cowgirl's kiss, I even felt a kiss from a California girl, I think, she must have been born in Texas, she had that taste of honey, like honey bee, she stung my heart, yep, brother Ben, I believe, evry word you said. However, regarding you comment, bout, the poka-dootted, boxer shorts at Wally-Mart, Now, Brother Ben, you really filled my cowboy boots to the top with one. May the honey bees of paradise, always swarm around you heart, and I hope, you never get stung, but you might, if, you don't rid of the poka dotted, boxer short!
Yoi Amigo, -Martin

ben f, Why,the polka-dotted boxers and cowboy boots? Well, after all, it was a pretty warm day and I didn't want to burn my feet on the hot pavement as I was walking across the Walmart parking lot. LOL! Thank you for reading this one, and thanks for having a curious mind. I do appreciate it! Best Regards, Ben

Terrie*, hot H2O seems to be the story of my life. I often wonder, "why is it this way?" Haa! Haaa! Anyway, I thank you for your comment, and I am pleased that you enjoyed this and got a laugh out of it! I am staying away from Wally world for a least a couple of weeks now. Warm Regards, -Ben

Hey Martin Vann, better get a diving bell.....

Hey Martin, Cowboy boots, rubber hip-waders, and even scuba gear is not enough protection from a mountain of Laney bull. I'd suggest it's better you get a diving-bell. I have been told that I am "so full-of-it" that I could fertilize the entire North American Continent single-handedly and still have enough bull to fill every box-car from L.A. to New York. And this was coming from my closest friend, who was doing his best to be nice! In my own defense I tell you rhis; My Dad was a Texan and my dear Mother was an Okie. I believe this trait I have is a genetic inheritance from my folks. Another theory is that it's something I absorbed, as a child, while running bare-foot and wild on the plains of the Great Southwest. What do you think, Amigo? Does that sound plausible to you? With that said, I thank you sooo much for your response to A Cowgirl's Kiss, my friend. I do truly enjoy your comments, and I really do appreciate them. Thanks again! Check my next post. It is entitled Chock-full Of Bull, inspired by your comment! All The Best, -Ben

Meridian, when things get hot..

Meridian, when things get hot, I say put on your polka-dotted boxers and your Cowboy boots and head for Wally World. That's where the Cowgirls all go. Please, watch out for those security people though. It's hard to outrun them when you're in Cowboy boots! You're right, I Am sweating! Thank you sooo much for your comment.. I am glad you got a smile out of it!Kind Regards, Ben

Ben, I don't knpw which is better the poem/lyrics or the author's note. Reminds me of when I was a kid and these boys who ran the trail rides at a campground I frequented would leave their boots on with their swim suits put their beach towels over they heads like veils and put their cowboy hats back on over top and walk to the area swimming lake... But polka dots.. really
-as for the poem... If I was a guy I think I would be moved to want to try to kiss a cowgirl for myself after a description like that :)

Tarna, There's no extra charge for enjoying the author's note as much as you do the lyrics, so you don't have to pick one over the other. As for the polka-dotted boxers, I heard (from a HIGHLY unreliable source) that Martin Vann sits at his computer in his polka-dotted boxers and Cowboy boots writing very romantic poetry and that's where the inspiration came from. Now, with that said, I want to thank you soooo much for your comment, I really do appreciate it. I really am glad you like this enough to "LOL". I will warn you however that this only encourages me more! Haaa! Haaaa! Thanks again!! All The Best, Ben

Ben Franklin, if you are laughing it only...

Ben Franklin, if you are laughing it only encourages me and makes me want to boogie around town in my polka-dotted boxers and cowboy boots. The thought has crossed my mind that maybe on the cover of my next CD I should just do a shot of myself doing just that. As for the matchstick in my mouth, the answer is no. I prefer to pack my cheeks with spearmint candy. With that said, I want to thank you very much for your comment, and to commend you for having such an active imagination. I really do like it when some tells me that a writing of mine as actually made them laugh! That's a good feeling! Hasta La Enchelada Mi Poetic Compadre, Ben
