I want a Cowboy for a husband~!

That was fun. I had to look it up and come to find out, the charts in Austria -where I come from- started in 1965, two years after I was born. The realization, that I am older than the hit charts in my country made me laugh hard. Now I feel older than dirt.

But, we listened to Italian radio stations as well as the ones from Germany. So here it is, the jewel from 1963, the month I was born.

A young singer named Gitte, who wanted a Cowboy for a husband

I Want a Cowboy for a Husband

I want a cowboy for a husband
I want a cowboy for a husband
It has nothing to do with the way he shoots
Rather, it has to do with the way he kisses
I want a cowboy for a husband

Mom says: “Now’s the time,
You need a husband, and today would be best!
Go for the boy next door
He works for the railroad!”
And I cry: No no no no no,
With him, I wouldn’t be happy anymore

“Why on earth not,
Think of the security,
And the pretty pension
From the railroad,
what else could you want?”

I want a cowboy for a husband
I want a cowboy for a husband
It has nothing to do with the way he shoots
Rather, it has to do with the way he kisses
I want a cowboy for a husband

Dad says: If I was so beautiful,
and had a figure like Loren
I’d take the first film producer
That came along for a husband.
And I cry: No no no no no,
With him, I wouldn’t be happy anymore

“But I don’t understand,
Why not a guy from the movie business?
One day you’ll be better off than your father,
what else could you want?”

I want a cowboy for a husband
I want a cowboy for a husband
It has nothing to do with the way he shoots
Rather, it has to do with the way he kisses
I want a cowboy for a husband

Thoughtful and deep lyrics indeed. Does the song relate to  me. As funny as it is, it does, considering that I did marry an American man. He wasn’t a really a Cowboy, but he could kiss. :-).

Thank you, good one, made me laugh hard~!

  1. Unbelievable what horrible songs were popular back then. I’d never heard my #1 and could have lived without hearing it now, but it did give us something to write about. Right? udydykstrabrown.com/2015/09/02/las-mananitas-and-other-less-lovely-bastardizations-of-the-spanish-language/
