Now that we have had the rice and flowers The knot is tied I can visu'lize such happy hours Close by your side The honeymoon in store Is one that you'll adore I'm gonna take you for a ride I'll go home and get my panties You go home and get your scanties And away we'll go Mmm-mmm-mmm Off we're gonna shuffle Shuffle off to Buffalo To Niag'ra in a sleeper There's no honeymoon that's cheaper And the train goes slow Ooh-ooh- ooh Off, we're gonna shuffle Shuffle off to Buffalo Someday, the stork may pay a visit And leave a little souvenir Just a little cute "what is it" But we'll discuss that later, Dear For a little silver quarter We can have the Pullman porter Turn the lights down low Ooh! Off we're gonna shuffle Shuffle off to Buffalo ***** As performed in the film "42nd Street": Now that we have had the rice and flowers The knot is tied I can visu'lize such happy hours Close by your side The honeymoon in store Is one that you'll adore I'm gonna take you for a ride I'll go home and get my panties You go home and get your scanties And away we'll go Mmm-mmm-mmm Off we're gonna shuffle Shuffle off to Buffalo To Niag'ra in a sleeper There's no honeymoon that's cheaper And the train goes slow Ooh-ooh-ooh Off, we're gonna shuffle, Shuffle off to Buffalo Someday, the stork may pay a visit And leave a little souvenir Just a little cute "what is it" But we'll discuss that later, Dear For a little silver quarter We can have the Pullman porter Turn the lights down low Ooh-ooh-ooh Off we're gonna shuffle Shuffle off to Buffalo You'll go home and get your purses I'll go get my niece and nurses And away we'll go Mmm-mmm-mmm Off we're gonna shuffle, Shuffle off to Buffalo To Niag'ra in a sleeper There's no honeymoon that's cheaper And the train goes slow Ooh-ooh-ooh Off we're gonna shuffle Shuffle off to Buffalo Someday, the stork may pay a visit And leave a little souvenir Just a little cute "what is it" But we'll discuss that later, Dear For a little silver quarter We can have the Pullman porter Turn the lights down low Ooh-ooh-ooh Off we're gonna shuffle Shuffle off to Buffalo Matrimony is baloney She'll be wanting alimony In a year of so Still they go and shuffle Shuffle Off to Buffalo When she knows as much as we know She'll be on her way to Reno While he still has dough She'll give him the Shuffle When they're back from Buffalo ***** When recorded by singers in England, "panties" and "scanties" were replaced with the words "clothses" and "these and thoses": Now that we have had the rice and flowers The knot is tied I can visu'lize such happy hours Close by your side The honeymoon in store Is one that you'll adore I'm gonna take you for a ride I'll go home and get my clotheses You go get your these and thoses And away we'll go Off we're gonna shuffle Shuffle off to buffalo To Niagara in a sleeper, There's no honeymoon that's cheaper And the train goes slow, Mmm! Off we're gonna shuffle Shuffle off to buffalo Someday, the stork may pay a visit And leave a little souvenir Just a little cute "What is it?" But we'll discuss that later, Dear For a little silver quarter We can have the Pullman porter Turn the lights down low Off we're gonna shuffle Shuffle off to buffalo With the wedding ring upon your finger It's done, we're one It's not customary that we linger And so let's go We'll dodge the rice and shoes We're going for a cruise Way up the road to Buffalo I'll go home and get my clotheses You go get your these and thoses And away we'll go Off we're gonna shuffle Shuffle off to buffalo To Niagara in a sleeper There's no honeymoon that's cheaper And the train goes slow, Mmm! Off we're gonna shuffle Shuffle off to buffalo Someday, the stork may pay a visit And leave a little souvenir Just a little cute "What is it?" But we'll discuss that later, Dear While the passengers are sleeping The Conductor will be keeping All the lights down low Ooh, off we're gonna shuffle Shuffle off to buffalo Shuffle off to Buffalo (Contributed by Bill Huntley - December 2004)
