If I Had a Boat

Lyle Lovett

If I Had a Boat - Lyle Lovett -

And if I had a boat, I’d go out on the ocean
And if I had a pony, I’d ride him on my boat
And we could all together go out on the ocean
me upon my pony on my boat

Now if I were Roy Rogers, I’d sure enough be single,
Couldn’t bring myself to marryin’ no Dale,
It’d just be me and Trigger, we’d go riding through them movies,
And we’d buy a boat and on the sea we’d sail.

And if I had a boat, I’d go out on the ocean
And if I had a pony, I’d ride him on my boat
And we could all together go out on the ocean
me upon my pony on my boat

Now the mystery masked man was smarter, he got himself a Tonto
‘Cause Tonto did the dirty work for free
But Tonto he was smarter, and one day said Kemosabe,
“Kiss my ass, I bought a boat, I’m going out to sea”

And if I had a boat, I’d go out on the ocean
And if I had a pony, I’d ride him on my boat
And we could all together go out on the ocean
me upon my pony on my boat

Now if I were like lightning, I wouldn’t need no sneakers,
Well I’d come and go whenever I did please,
And I’d scare ‘em by the shade tree, and I’d scare ‘em by the lightpole,
But I would not scare my pony on my boat out on the sea

And if I had a boat, I’d go out on the ocean
And if I had a pony, I’d ride him on my boat
And we could all together go out on the ocean
me upon my pony on my boat
