Post Malone is just as disappointed as other Dallas Cowboys fans

Post Malone covered Hootie and the Blowfish’s Only Wanna Be with You, a classic superhit from late in the 20th century. He did so as part of the Pokemon 25th anniversary.

The song previously featured in movies such as Marley and Me and Ted. The original song featured a line in tribute to the AFC East franchise, Miami Dolphins.

However, Post Malone added a twist of his own. He added the line ‘I’m such a baby because the Cowboys make me cry’. We’re not sure Cowboys fans across America will disagree with him on that one.

Here’s the original 1990’s classic song featuring Dan Marino and Fred Couples.
