The theme song is sung by Brain, the Troubadour. Lyrics:
"Here's a tale of 10 strong cowbows,
Rugged, handsome and well dressed,
Said "We're here to woo Miss Zoe...
...we're prepared for any test"
They came in to El Rancho Mancho,
Our Senorita didn't know,
Some were straight...
...And some were not so,
A game of love in Mexico,
Will Zoe win, and find her mate?
Who's out, who's in?
Who's playing it straight?!"… Expand
