Outside a dusty old café
Called Spellin' Bob's Corral
Two desperadoes met one day
You couldn't call them pals
Well, you could, but you'd be fibbin'.
One cowpoke to the other said,
"You callin' me a fool?
You'd better call your mother, Fred,
We're gonna have a duel."
And that's not some new dance.
"A contest between you and me?
There ought to be a law.
But that's the way it's gotta be,
So count to three and draw."
And out came their spelling books.
"Looks like I'll be goin' first,"
The faster cowboy said.
"I'll go ahead and do my worst -
The word to spell is bed."
Oooooo, tough one.
"B-e-d spells bed, and that
Is no beginner's luck
You'd better hold onto your hat -
The word for you is duck."
Quack, quack, pardner.
"That's d-u-c-k - duck, my friend.
I knew it all along"
Now stick around to hear the end
Of this here cowboy song.
It was the spelling bee
The spelling bee
The spelling bee at Spellin' Bob's Corral
Spelling's easy, so you've heard?
That's not the way we tell it
It's one thing just to say a word
It's another thing to spell it.
I can spell it. I-T.
To spell a word and spell it right
You must know every letter
But if you practice every night
We promise you'll get better.
Now those two cowboys duked it out
They spelled with all their smarts
We've never seen a spelling bout
Like that around these parts
Or any parts, come to think.
One cowboy said at last, "Hey gee,
We're both so tired and muddy.
You love spelling, same as me
Why can't we just be buddies?"
Sounds like f-u-n.
And ever since that fateful day
They got on super swell
If you meet 'em down at Bob's they'll say
"Come on and set a spell."
... "Come on and set a spell."
