DAFFY DUCK'S RHAPSODY (Warren Foster / Mike Maltese / Billy May) (original melody - "Hungarian Rhapsody Number 2" by Franz Liszt) Mel Blanc - 1950 Greetings! My name is Daffy There's no other duck like me Because I'm so daffy And the reason I'm daffy And so gosh-derned riff-raffy And so screwy and laffy Is because those hunters won't leave me alone Oh, why don't they hunt some other animal for a change So, that I won't have to end up on a kitchen range But no, duck hunting's all the rage and they won't let me be And I'm so full of bullets, I'm lit up like a Christmas tree There's so much I'd like to do if I just had the chance I'd like to play and romp and even sing and do a dance I would read the latest book Go swimming in the babbling brook I'd like to fly the seven seas Play hide and seek among the trees I'd play hop scotch and double dutch And this and that and things and such I know that isn't asking much But all these things I daresn't touch It's bang! bang! here, and bang! bang! there Bullets flying everywhere I can't stand it any longer I get weak and they get stronger Hunters to the right of me Hunters to the left I see Over hill and over dale Bullets whizzing past my tail There's no rest and there's no peace Won't this shooting ever cease Morning, noon, and through the night That's why I look such a fright BANG! BANG! BANG! I'm only sixteen yards ahead BANG! BANG! BANG! They're shooting straight at me HOO! HOO! HOO! They won't let up until I'm dead HOO! HOO! HOO! Why can't they let me be Why don't they hunt big wild moose Or chase a Ranger on the loose There's possums, chipmunks, caribou Or rabbits for a rabbit stew Rats and squirrels, porcupines Monkeys swinging on the vines Leopards with or without spots Wild cats with or without dots Elephants, badgers, kangaroos Lions, tigers, cows that moo Wolf and mice and praire ox Red and grey and silver fox DAFFY! They drive me daffy! Those hunters with their great big guns They're all uncles, cousins, fathers, sons Crazy! They got me hazy With all that rootin'-flootin'-hootin'-tootin'-high-falootin' noisy shootin' Closer! They're gettin' closer With shot-guns, pistols, bows and arrows, riffles, knives, and other deadly trifles Scram now! While I'm still able You're nutty to think that I'm gonna end up on somebody's dinner table Sooooo, Good-bye! So long now! Woo-hoo, woo-hoo, woo-hoo, woo-hoo, woo-hoo, woo-hoo, woo-hoo, woo- hoo, woo-hoo...
