A Load Of BullDown in Louisiana, there was a newly formed cattle spread,
run by two lady ranchers, one was blonde and one was red.
The redhead took their stake up north to Texas I hear tell,
determined to increase the worth of cattle they would sell.
She found a cowman who agreed to sell her his stud bull,
for what she carried in her wallet, crammed with dollars full.
The red head went to send a message to her friend down south,
and these are all the words they heard that issued from her mouth
"I want to send a wire down south to bring my friend to me
Please write this down if you don't mind, and what the cost will be.
'Have found the stud bull of our dreams, please bring the trailer north.'
Well that's the word, and tell me please just what that wire is worth."
The clerk behind the counter said, "Nine dollars seventy-five."
The red head, startled, shouted out "Well, goodness sales alive!
She pondered for a moment while the clerk sat patiently,
Then said, "Okay, then please just send this single word for me."
"One word? " exclaimed the startled clerk. "What word could do the trick?"
"This one," said Mistress Redhead. "See, my friend is fairly thick.
She reads so very slowly, and she always reads aloud.
She doesn't care who hears her, for she isn't over proud.
She'll read that word and this is what my blondie friend will say,
Com -for- ta -ble, okay I will, and get there right away!"
And sure enough the blonde appeared with trailer on a pull,
and shouted out, "Hey Red, I'm here, and I'm com-for-da-bull!"
