Nuthin' Broke

Went rummaging through some old songs the other day and found this one. -Only to be heard by those of you that are my blogging pals. I wrote this as sort of a joke after Brokeback Mountain hit the screens. Got a few laughs out of it.

A whole lot of my relatives on my mom's side are Cowboys. They rope cows on the weekend. They own cows. They rope them. They are good at it. Thus, they are really cowboys. Hilarious, smart, witty, Cowboys.

This song is a tribute to them. CLICK HERE AND Enjoy!

"Nuthin' Broke" Words and Music by Seth Ward

Well I’m not a metrosexual
I’m not Yoga flexible
I don’t wear Speedo when I’m walkin’ on the beach

I don’t lay in tanning beds
My body’s white, my neck is red
I like to ride my horse into the sunset

(Chorus)
And I like John Wayne and a football game and
Drinkin’ beer after workin’ hard all day
And baby when I see you in that dress I start to shoutin’
Cause there ain’t nothin’ broke about my mountain.


Well I like Hank Williams and a Waylon Jennings too
George Strait, Johnny Cash, Chris Ledoux
And I like the rodeo and a home on the range
I got a big hound dog that I just call “Caine.”

Well I like John Wayne and a football game and
Drinkin’ beer after workin’ hard all day
And baby when I see you in that dress I start to shoutin’
Cause there ain’t nothin’ broke about my mountain.


I got an oscillating fan and I don’t own a suit
That says Gucci, Armani, or Versace on my boots
So if you see those guys from that show on Bravo
You can just tell them where they all can go

okay, it's just not the same without the music. you must record this, and become a millionaire.

I did! A crappy version of it anyways. Click on the "here" button and listen.

hilarious! I laughed and ran into the other room and made my boyfriend listen to it. He actually stopped playing WoW to listen to it, and laughed. Bravo, Seth, bravo!

The right thing to do would be to juxtapose this song with Monty Python's Lumberjack Song.

Seth Ward said...

Hi reijn. Long time not talky. Thanks, glad you guys were entertained! That was the plan.

Euphrony, another classic. Although I would really like for Toby Keith to sing it, take it seriously, (as is possible) and make me a millionaire.

I like the Toby Keith plan. Have you sent it to him, yet?
