Joe Dassin: Yellowstone cowbear

Joe Dassin: Yellowstone cowbear (1979)
Hey, look at me, Iím a dancing bear in a bow to a gypsy king
He taught me everything I know and he plays a mean tambourine
And he got a gold ring in his ear, I got a brass one in my nose
For any motherís son, for any mommaís cub way it goes

Now, I like my life, thatís all I know, thereís nothing that I lack
So why do I do dream of the bark of a tree
To scratch my back and figure out
Why I groove on a rainbow trout?

Dreams, dreams, dreams, recurring dreams
Hmmm, why do I have these dreams?
Right foot in and right foot out
Hmmm thatís what itís all about - dreams

DreamsÖ
I watch the world go buy through the bars of my mobile home
Why ainít I satisfied, what do you mean by ďYellowstoneĒ?
Now, heís got a foulard made of silk, I got a collar, I got a chain
But he drives our car and he pays my bills
And I only dance when it doesnít rain

Like any bear Iíve ever seen in ways that I was raised
But why do I dream of a ...... stream
So cold and waiting? Tell me why
I get so sleepy in the wintertime?

Dreams, dreams, dreams, recurring dreams
Ohmm, why do I have these dreams?
Put your left foot in and your left foot out
Hmm, baby, thatís what itís all about - dreams

DreamsÖ

Now, heís got a lunch box, I got a pail
I climb a ladder, he plays the drum
He got a moustache, I got a tail
Weíre just doing like we always done

Two steps is all I know, two steps is okay by me
But why all these dreams of rolling Ďround
On daisy greens? I got no clue
Just this feeling of dťjŗ vu

Dreams, dreams, dreams, recurring dreams
Hmmmm, why do I have these dreams?
Right foot in and right foot out
Hmmm, thatís what itís all about - dreams

Iím a Yellowstone cowbear
Thatís why...
Yeah!
Rrrrrrrrrrgh!
