Sing a Song

Buffalo Gals

As I was walking down the street
Down the street, down the street,
A little pretty gal I chanced to meet,
Oh she was fair to see.

Chorus
Buffalo Gals, won’t you come out tonight,
Come out tonight, come out tonight.
Buffalo Gals, won’t you come out tonight
And dance by the light of the moon.

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.

Chorus
Buffalo Gals, won’t you come out tonight,
Come out tonight, come out tonight.
Buffalo Gals, won’t you come out tonight
And dance by the light of the moon.

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