King of the Rodeo Lyrics

He's so purity, a shaven and a mourning,
and standing on a Pigeon toe, in his dissarray

Straight in the picture pose,
he's coming around to meet you

And screaming like a battle cry, its more if i stay

Me and your cold, Driving in the...

    It is about young love...not about a transvestite...the video clearly explains what it is about.

    It is about a gay male prostitute,

    In the first verse he is standing on the street waiting for customers, "shaven" "standing in his dissaray".

    In the second verse he gets a call to go meet sombody for buisness.

    In the third verse "And screaming like a battle cry" is like when the customer finihses having sex with him, "its more if I stay" he is telling the customer he will need to be paid more to stay any longer now that they have finished.

    The fourth verse is about him driving home after meeting his customer, he is cold and it is snowing but he is looking forward to something "let the good times roll" possibly another customer. "Cowgirl king of the rodeo" reveals that he is gay, and that he is into the whole cowboy thing, like midnight cowboy.

    The final verse is his next customer wanting it for free, and him saying no. then the customer says take off youre overcoat you are staying for the weekend. Then "good time to roll on" over and over means that he will either leave now and not work as a prostitute anymore, or he will finish this las weekend then quit, its hard for me to tell.
