Liner Notes: 

Like most boys, my son always picked one of these four occupations as his future job. But what if one person could do them all?

Lyrics: 

I'm a secret agent
fireman cowboy astronaut
and I know not what
to do first:
shoot a spy, fly from Earth
rope some cattle
or do battle
with a fire

Secret agent fireman cowboy astronaut
the busiest man in the land
Secret agent fireman cowboy astronaut
every boy's perfect dad

Secret weapon in one hand
fire extinguisher in the other
I work the controls of the spaceship with one foot
and lasso the rope with the other

Secret agent fireman cowboy astronaut
the busiest man in the land
Secret agent fireman cowboy astronaut
every boy's perfect dad



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

This grooves so hard. The harmonium was an amazing surprise. You win.

my daughter would be painter dancer drummer fireman.....such a good idea fora song, as the multi occupation dilemna is so universal among kids. adults too, and we can sometimes pull it off. the faster ryhthm fits the song well.

This gave me a little deja vu moment--then I remembered I had just seen an episode of old Canadian tv series CORNER GAS where one of the characters is aspiring to be some kind of outer space fireman or something.

Nice vocal on this. Fun!
