I've been looking for the lyrics to "The Cowboy and the Senorita", as sung by Roy Rogers in the film by the same name. The first part of it goes:
    The Cowboy and the Senorita met in Rosarita
    The Cowboy and the Senorita made the night much sweeter
    With words like "I love you so".

Lyrics hear-able on Youtube being sung by Roy Rogers.

In the event no one posts the lyrics.

I found the entire 51-minute movie on YouTube here (click). There's a Wikipedia page on the 1944 movie. It says the title song has Music by Phil Ohman, lyrics by Ned Washington. Notice the cars in the movie (at about five minutes) - can anybody identify them?

Here are the songs in the film:
  • "Cowboy and the Senorita" (Music by Phil Ohman, lyrics by Ned Washington)
  • "What'll I Use for Money?" (Music by Phil Ohman, lyrics by Ned Washington)
  • "The Enchilada Man" (Music by Phil Ohman, lyrics by Ned Washington)
  • "Bunk House Bugle Boy" (Written by Tim Spencer and Bob Nolan
  • "Besame mucho" (Written by Consuelo Velázquez)
  • "She Wore a Yellow Ribbon" (Written by George A. Norton)

Here's the version in the beginning of the movie:

THE COWBOY AND THE SEÑORITA
(Music by Phil Ohman, lyrics by Ned Washington)

The cowboy and the señorita
Met in Rosarita one night, not so long ago;
The cowboy and the señorita
Made the night much sweeter with words like "I love you so."

[bridge]
He said life on the range is such a lonely life;
Won't you pack up your shawl, acquire a drawl, and be a cowboy's wife?

They married, and their plans all carried;
They've a little cowboy, and oh what a kid.
Why don't folks do like
The cowboy and the señorita did?

[bridge]
He said, "Don't send me back, Back to that lone prairie;
I've got a saddle for two, for me and for you, come ride away with me."

They headed toward the church and wedded,
Bought a little rancho, and that's where they hid;
Why don't folks do like
The cowboy and the señorita did?



...and the version at the end of the movie:

THE COWBOY AND THE SEÑORITA
(Music by Phil Ohman, lyrics by Ned Washington)

The cowboy and the señorita
Met in Rosarita one night, not so long ago;
I kissed her, and she whispered, "Mister,
Take me to your airy old prairie, I love you so."

[bridge]
There life is sunshine and full of laughter,
They'll be happy forever after.

Why don't you come along where the air is sweeter,
With the cowboy and the pretty señorita?



Cute movie. I watched the whole thing. Off the subject, Colorado features Roy Rogers as an Army intelligence lieutenant.

Wow, that's amazing. Thanks so much! I haven't watched that whole movie yet (I intend to soon), but the song was pretty cute, I thought. :) Thanks so much again!
