I agree. ''You Can't Tame Me'' is about a guy singing about the women in his romantic past (''A cowgirl on the range in El Paso, smiled at me and got out her lasso''). That echoes ''I'm a Bad, Bad Man'' from ''Annie Get Your Gun'': ''There's a girl in Tennessee who's sorry she met up with me ...''

''You Can't Tame Me'' also taps into Hammerstein's fondness for nature imagery. The verse starts: ''When a squirrel wants another squirrel ...''

Since that scene is inspired by ''Carousel,'' the spoof even quotes the lyric ''Somehow I can see ... exactly how [it'd] be'' from ''If I Loved You.''
