Colonel Buffalo Bill Lyrics

Colonel Buffalo Bill - The MGM Studio Orchestra/Betty Hutton/Louis Calhern/Keenan Wynn

Written by:Irving Berlin/Adolph Deutsch

Who's got the stuff that made the Wild West wild

 

Who pleases every woman man and child

Who does his best to give the customers a thrill

Who

Colonel Buffalo Bill

 

Who's got the show that gets the most applause

Five hundred Indians and fifty Squas

Ten featured acts and there's a special feature still

Who

Colonel Buffalo Bill

 

Did you ever seen a cowboy rope a steer

No we haven't

Or an Indian with feathers throw a spear

No we haven't

Or a marksman shoot an earring from an ear

No we haven't

Did you ever seen a hold up

No sir

 

Then gather closer

And let me give you some of the atmosphere

 

The hour is midnight and all is still

We see the stage coach climbing up the hill

Moving along the mountain trail

Carrying passengers and mail

Never suspecting danger as they roll along

The watchful driver is in his seat

His trusty rifle lying at his feet

Some of the passengers inside

Seem to be dozing as they ride

Never suspecting there is something really wrong

Suddenly there's a shout

 

What is it all about

 

What is it all about you ask

It's Indians

Indians

Indians

Indians

Very notable cut your throatable Indians

Indians

Just when they've taken everyone by force

Who makes an entrance on a big white horse

Who starts a shooting 'till there's

No one left to kill

General Grant

No Colonel Buffalo Bill

 

Who's got the stuff that made the Wild West wild

 

Who pleases every woman man and child

 

Who does his best to give the customers a thrill

 

Colonel Buffalo Bill
