Buffalo, buffalo, buffalo

Buffalo gal
You've had your fun
Your button's undone
And the time's right for slaughter
Buffalo gal
You're thirsty and there's no more water
Like the lamb on the altar

And it's sad to see you lookin' down and feelin' blue
Try your best to get on up and see it through
In a while you might smile and see the sun
The day has begun

And buffalo gal
They're closin' down the old dance hall
Hmm, buffalo gal
What we gonna do now?

Buffalo gal
Due to these circumstances
There's no more dances
Buffalo gal
All your chances of further romances
Will have to be nil
'til I can get it sung

Is a shame, your only claim to fame is Jessie James
You know his middle name that's very strange
Stranger, you knew a friend called the friendly ranger
Oh, you shared the danger

And buffalo gal
They're closin' down the old dance hall
Hmm, buffalo gal
What we gonna do now?

Buffalo, buffalo, buffalo

Buffalo gal
You gotta try a big step
You've gotta big jump ahead
Buffalo gal
The show left town
Spreading sunshine all around

And it's bad to see ya, ooh, lookin' blue
Dry your eyes and I'll apologies for all the lies
Try a smile and in a while, just in a while
You'll be smilin' through

Ooh, buffalo gal
They're closin' down the old dance hall
(Buffalo, buffalo, buffalo)
And buffalo gal
(Buffalo, buffalo, buffalo)
Oh, you look so good somehow
(Buffalo, buffalo, buffalo)
Oh buffalo gal
(Buffalo, buffalo, buffalo)
Oh, that's such a pretty dress
(Buffalo, buffalo, buffalo)

Buffalo gal
(Buffalo, buffalo, buffalo)
The show left town
(Buffalo, buffalo, buffalo)
Buffalo gal
(Buffalo, buffalo, buffalo)
Take a picture
(Buffalo, buffalo, buffalo)
Of buffalo gal
(Buffalo, buffalo, buffalo)
