Buffalo Gals

Lyrics

(Folk song)

1. As I was lum’b’ring down the street, down the street, down the street,
A pretty little gal I chanced to meet, Oh she was fair to view.

Refrain
Buffalo gals, won’t ya come out tonight, come out tonight, come out tonight,
Buffalo gals, won’t ya come out tonight, and dance by the light of the moon.

2. I asked her if she’d have a talk, have a talk, have a talk,
Her feet took up the whole sidewalk, As she stood close to me. Refrain

3. I asked her “Would you want to dance, want to dance, want to dance?”
I thought that I would have a chance To shake a foot with her. Refrain

4. Oh I danced with the gal with a hole in her stockin’,
And her hip kept a-rockin’, and her toe kept a-knockin’.
I danced with the gal witha hole in her stockin’
And we dance by the light of the moon. Refrain

5. I wanna make that gal my wife, gal my wife, gal my wife,
Then I’d be happy all my life, If I had her with me. Refrain
