A Glass Half Full of Stuff to Read

Rootin' Tootin' Shootin' Star

A rootin' tootin' shootin' star

Travelled very, very far

From the Wild West of outer space

Until it found the human race


When he arrived he aimed for Earth

And falling unholstered his guns

Red hot spurs, a flaming tail

Shining brighter than the sun


What this meteor was here for

Was a good old-fashioned fight

But in the atmosphere he shed tear

As burned up in the night


He'd let himself get too hot-headed

From the ground a beautiful sight

And that rootin' tootin' meteor

Never became a meteorite.
