Cow Cow Boogie Lyrics - Ella Fitzgerald

Review The Song (1)



Cow Cow Boogie Lyrics
Artist(Band):Ella Fitzgerald


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 singin'
A most peculiar cowboy song
It was a ditty, he learned in the city
Comma ti yi yi yeah
Comma ti yippity yi yeah

Now get along, get hip little DOGIES
Get along, better be on your way
Get along, get hip little DOGIES
AND He trucked 'em on down that 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 songs
He's just too much
He's got a knocked out western accent with a HARLEM touch
He was raised on LOCO 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

(CHORUS)

Singin' his cowboy songs
He's just too much
He's got a knocked out western accent with a HARLEM
touch
THAT CAT was raised on LOCO WEED
JACK, He's what you call a swing half breed
Singin' his Cow Cow BOOGIE in the strangest way
Comma ti yi yi yeah
Comma ti yippity yi yeah
Comma ti yi yi yeah
Comma ti yippity yi yeah
GIT, GIT, GIT ALONG LITTLE DOGIES, YOU BETTER BE ON YOUR WAY

first, let me say that i love ella fitzgerald's version of this song in more ways than i can count... but for purposes of this discussion, i find it interesting how un-P.C. the lyrics are, what with half-breeds, loco weed and a harlem touch.... the cowboy calls are very skat... don't you think?

guess it just goes to show you that everything is understood through the context of the time.
