The brave cowboy puts the cows to bed and sings them a lullaby. “It’s time for little cows to sleep so tight… It’s time for us to say… ” Rather than saying goodnight the cowboy screams “Eeeeek!” He thinks he sees a “huge scary spider” but it is only a flower. Embarrassed he restarts the lullaby. He stops again when he thinks he sees a “slimy slithering snake” (a stick) and a “large lumbering bear” (one of the cows). When the cowboy sees a “huge shaggy gray wolf” he knows it is something less threatening. But it is a real wolf. A wolf who luckily loves lullabies.
