ouwe bles is a popular yodel song sung by many Dutch cowboy-style yodelers like the boy-yodeler Bobby Klein [trans from Dutch] also sung by Belgian cowboy yodeler Bob Vrieling.
"in the afternoon when i get home from school
i help my father around the farm
until my father says: "Stop dreaming and
go bring back ole Bles from the pasture"
then I grab the really Ole Bles by the head
and swing uyp on his back and here is
where i become a real cowboy, or so I imagine
and I'm riding across the Texas prairies...
[lots of yodeling]
My 2nd yodel book was recently published: YODEL IN HIFI: FROM KITSCH FOLK TO MODERN ELECTRONICA. you can find more info at: http://uwpress.wisc.edu/books/4594.htm
