Out on the plains down near Santa Fe I met a cowboy ridin' the range one day And as he jogged along I heard him singing A most peculiar cowboy song It was a ditty, he learned in the city Comma ti yi yi yeah Comma ti yippity yi yeah Get along, get hip little doggies Get along, better be on your way Get along, get hip little doggies And he trucked them on down the old fairway Singin' his Cow Cow Boogie in the strangest way Comma ti yi yi yeah Comma ti yippity yi yeah (Chorus) Singin' his cowboy song He's just too much He's got a knocked out western accent with a Harlem touch He was raised on local weed He's what you call a swing half breed Singin' his Cow Cow Booogie in the strangest way Comma ti yi yi yeah Comma ti yippity yi yeah (Orchestral interlude) Get along little doggie, better be on your way, your way, Get along little doggie And he trucked them on down the old fairway Singin' his Cow Cow Boogie in the strangest way Comma ti yi yi yeah Comma ti yippity yi yeah. Yip Yip singing his cowboy song Yip Yip As he was joggling along Yip Yip he sings with a Harlem touch Yip Yip that guy is just too much Singing his cow cow boogie in the strangest way Comma ti yi yi yi yi yi yeah. ***** TRIVIA: The Freddie Slack / Ella Mae Morse recording of "Cow Cow Boogie" was the first release from newly formed Capitol records and went on to become the company's first million-seller. ***** (Transcribed by Bill Huntley - October 2004)
