  • Cowboys to girls
    I remember when I used to play shoot 'em up
    (Shoot 'em up, bang, bang baby)
    I remember when I chased the girls and beat 'em up
    But I was young and didn't understand
    But now I'm a grown up man
    I know girls are made for kissing
    Never knew what I was missing
    Now my life is not the same
    My whole world has been rearranged
    I went from (cowboy to girls)
    Oh yes I did
    (Cowboys to girls)

    I remember when I used to see you jumping rope
    (Jumping rope up and down baby)
    And I remember when you got your first baby coach
    But you were young and didn't understand
    Now you're a woman and I'm a man
    And it's me that you're kissing
    Ain't it fun reminiscing
    Now our lives are not the same
    Our whole world has been rearranged

    You went from (pretty dolls to boys)
    Oh yes you did
    And I went from (cowboys to girls)
    Oh yes I did
    And it's me that you're kissing
    Ain't it fun reminiscing
    And my life life is not the same
    This whole world has been rearranged
    I went from (cowboys to girls)
    Oh yes I did
    You went from (pretty dolls to boys)
    Oh yes I did
    I went from (cowboys to girls) Writer/s: KENNY GAMBLE, LEON A HUFF

  • Martin from Los Angeles, CaThe Intruders names were Little Sonny (Lead Singer), Big Sonny (His brother), Phil and Byrd.
  • Barbara from Queens, New York, NyI was just making dinner and this song came to mind. I loved it then and I still do. I will be singing it for days. Oh, how I wish those days were back now!!
  • Michael from Chicago, IlI remember this song with some sweet memories. What tickles me the most is that this song, like the Delfonics' 'La La Means I Love You', was a song every guy in my school and neighborhood tried to sing - and couldn't!!
  • John from Nashville, TnThe first two lines of this song were incorporated in Tierra's 1980 remake of the Intruders r&b hit "Together". Tierra's version of the song went top 10 pop.
  • William from New Orleans, LaThis song brings back many fond memories.I remember hearing it when I was a young child,and since I am a musician I've played and sung it also. Great song!
  • Bill from Queens, NyI listened to the song "Cowboys to Girls" a lot when I was in Vietnam with the Marines in 1968. It meant so much to me because it reminded me of growing up and peace and normalcy. It was one of the songs that kept me sane in the midst of carnage and insanity. I would like to thank Kenny Gamble, Leon Huff, and The Intruders for their precious gift of music.
