It's the week of the rodeo, and all through the city,
We're sprucing things up to make it look pretty;
For all of the people who visit our town
To see the parade, the cowboys and clown.
Elise is real busy with last minute plans
To make things perfect for the rodeo fans.
The Chamber, some clubs and organizations
Are setting up booths and takin their stations.
While others are busy putting up fences and gates.
Hard work and cooperation are some of the traits
It takes to put on this great celebration,
Providing for many a mini vacation.
There's hotdogs, chicken and brats for a start,
There's games and pie Saturday in the park.
The parade, a dunk tank and a sheep rodeo,
Keep everyone hopping and on the go.
And when it's all over, we'll breathe a deep sign
Knowing the year will fly swiftly by.
The rodeo site will be empty, there'll be nothing to do
But say, "Come again next year, Happy Trails to You!"
