Playboys Of The Western World


Go west young man what have you to lose
I’ll make you an offer that you can’t refuse

Be a King for a day, or a playboy of the Western World for life

Go west young man there’ll be no regrets
But don’t (ever) show them how easy you are to impress

As a King for a day, or a playboy of the Western World for life

Gypsy girl the lines are fading, the future just ain't that clear
The night sky shows signs of aging, the deck of cards are missing the fool and the star

Go west young man and fight for your dream
Know there’s no escaping that which you believe

A King for a day, or a playboy of the Western World for life

Go west young man tomorrow needs you
But shed your tears early or you won’t get through

A King for a day, or a playboy of the Western World for life

Where would we be, if none of us dreamed
Where would we be, if none of us believed
Where would we be, if none of us tried
Just Kings for a day, or Playboys of the Western World for life

Go west young man yes you in the crowd
The time that you’re wasting can never be found

A King for a day, or a Playboy of the Western World for life

And it’s been that way for so many years
For so many years, so many years, so many years
It's been that way for so many years, so many years, so many years, so many years

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
