Well first you gotta want to get off,
And you better trust in your lady luck

To pit you and the bull against the clock and a course crowd
Nothing else you've ever done can pull this way
You lose a spur and you lose your seat and you lose yourself
Slinging mud and cowboy boots and kicking clowns
No fools, no fun, bull rider
You gotta feel the way he's moving, you gotta watch his head
You know the art of hanging loose is hanging just as tight

It's a fact of life and it's tough to cut and it's beaver hats
Tight lemae on barrel racers and a horse bucking
No rides, no pay, bull rider
Live fast, die young, bull rider
