ORCHESTRA

2.I'M A BAD, BAD MAN

FRANK BUTLER:

I'm honored, I'm flattered,

This greeting really mattered.

This welcome is grand

But I'm really concerned.

I like your attention

But this I have to mention

You're playing with fire

And up to get burned!

There's a girl in Tennessee

Who's sorry she met up with me

I can't go back to Tennessee,

I'm a bad, bad man!

There's a girl in Omaha,

But I ran faster than her Pa,

I can't go back to Omaha

There's a girl in Wyoming,

And they're combing Wyoming

To find a man in white

Who was out with her that night!

There's a girl in Arkansas,

The Sheriff is her brother-in-law,

I can't go back to Arkansas,

I'm a bad, bad man!

I'm enlightened, but frightened.

Though my int'rest you've heightened.

It might turn out to be

That too much, too much for me!

So I'll go back to my tent,

And someday when you're old and bent,

Think of those you might have spent

With a bad, bad man!

3.DOIN' WHAT COMES NARUR'LLY

ANNIE OAKLEY and FEMALE CHORUS:

Folks are dumb where I come from,

They ain't had any learning.

Still they're happy as can be

Doin' what comes naturally (doin' what comes naturally).

Folks like us could never fuss

With schools and books and learning.

Still we've gone from A to Z,

Doin' what comes naturally (doin' what comes naturally)

You don't have to know how to read or write

When you're out with a feller in the pale moonlight.

You don't have to look in a book to find out

What he thinks of the moon and what is on his mind.

That comes naturally (that comes naturally).

My uncle out in Texas can't even write his name.

He signs his checks with "x's"

But they cash them just the same.

If you saw my pa and ma,

You'd know they had no learning,

Still they've raised a family

Doin' what comes naturally (doin' what comes naturally)

Cousin Jack has never read an almanac on drinking

Still he's always on the spree

Doin' what comes naturally (doin' what comes naturally).

Sister Sal who's musical has never had a lesson,

Still she's learned to sing off-key

Doin' what comes naturally (doin' what comes naturally).

You don't have to go a private school

Not to pick up a penny near a stubborn mule,

You don't have to have a professor's dome

Not to go for the honey when the bee's not home.

That comes naturally (that comes naturally).

My tiny baby brother, who's never read a book,

Knows one sex from the other,

All he had to do was look,

Grandpa Bill is on the hill

With someone he just married.

There he is at ninety-three,

Doin' what comes naturally (doin' what comes naturally).

4.THE GIRL THAT I MARRY

FRANK BUTLER:

The girl that I marry will have to be

As soft and as pink as a nursery

The girl I call my own

Will wear satin and laces and smell of cologne

Her nails will be polished

And in her hair she'll wear a gardenia

And I'll be there

Instead of flittin', I'll be sittin'

Next to her I'm cheerful like a kitten

A doll I can carry,

The girl that I marry must be.

Instead of flittin', I'll be sittin'

Next to her I'm cheerful like a kitten

A doll I can carry,

The girl that I marry must be.

5.YOU CAN'T GET A MAN WITH A GUN

ANNIE OAKLEY:

Oh my Mother was frightened by a shotgun, they say,

That's why I'm such a wonderful shot.

I'd be am out in the cactus and I practice all day,

And now tell me what have I got.

I'm quick on the trigger with targets not much bigger

Than a pen point, I'm number one.

But my score with a feller is lower than a cellar-

Oh you can't get a man with a gun.

When I'm with a pistol

I sparkle like a crystal,

Yes, I shine like the morning sun.

But I lose all my luster

When with a Bronco Buster.

Oh you can't get a man with a gun.

With a gun, with a gun,

No, you can't get a man with a gun.

If I went to battle

With someone's herd of cattle

You'd have steak when the job was done.

But if shot the herder,

They'd holler "bloody murder"

And you can't shoot a male

In the tail like a quail

Oh you can't get a man with a gun.

I'm cool, brave and daring

To see a lion glaring

When I'm out with my Remington

But a look from a mister

Will raise a fever blister

Oh you can't get a man with a gun.

The gals with "umbrellars"

Are always out with fellers

In the rain or the blazing sun

But a man never trifles

With gals who carry rifles

Oh you can't get a man with a gun.

With a gun, with a gun,

No, you can't get a man with a gun.

A man's love is mighty

It'll leave him buy a nightie

For a gal who he thinks is fun.

But they don't by pajamas

For Pistol packin' mamas,

And you can't get a hug

From a mug with a slug,

Oh you can't get a man with a gun.

6.MOONSHINE LULLABY

ANNIE OAKLEY and FEMALE CHORUS:

NOT AVAILABLE!

7.THEY SAY IT'S WONDERFUL

ANNIE OAKLEY and FRANK BUTLER:

ANNIE OAKLEY:

They say that falling in love is wonderful

It's wonderful, so they say.

And with a moon up above it's wonderful

It's wonderful, so they tell me.

I can't recall who said it

I know I never read it

I only know that falling in love is grand

And the thing that's known as romance

Is wonderful, wonderful

In every way

So they say

FRANK BUTLER:

Rumors fly and they often leave without

But you've come to the right place to find out

Ev'rything that you've heard is really so

I've been there once or twice and I should know

You'll find that falling in love is wonderful

It's wonderful, as they say

And with a moon up above it's wonderful

It's wonderful, as they tell you

You'll leave your house a morning

And without any warning

You're stopping people shouting that love is grand

And to hold a man in your arms

Is wonderful, wonderful

In every way

ANNIE OAKLEY:

I should say.

FRANK BUTLER:

Wonderful...

ANNIE OAKLEY:

Wonderful...

ANNIE OAKLEY and FRANK BUTLER:

In every way

So they say.

8.MY DEFENSES ARE DOWN

FRANK BUTLER:

I've had my way with so many girls

An' was lots of fun.

My scheme was to know many girls

To keep me safe from one

I find it can be done.

My defenses are down

She's broken my resistance

And I don't know where I am

I went into the fight like a lion

But I came out like a lamb.

My defenses are down

She's got me where she wants me

And I can't escape no how

I could speak to my heart when it wakened

But my heart won't listen now.

Like a toothless, clawless tiger,

Like an organ-grinder's bear,

Like a knight without his armor,

Like Samson without his hair.

My defenses are down

I might as well surrender

For the battle can't be won.

But I must confess that I like it,

So there's nothing to be done.

Yes, I must confess that I like it

Being miserable's gonna be fun

MALE CHORUS:

His defenses are down

She's broken my resistance

And he's in an awful jam.

FRANK BUTLER:

I went into the fight like a lion

MALE CHORUS:

But you came out like a lamb.

FRANK BUTLER:

My defenses are down

MALE CHORUS:

She's got you where she wants you

And you can't escape no how

FRANK BUTLER:

I could speak to my heart when it wakened

MALE CHORUS:

But my heart won't listen now.

FRANK BUTLER:

Like a toothless, clawless tiger,

Like an organ-grinder's bear,

MALE CHORUS:

Like a knight without his armor,

FRANK BUTLER:

Like Samson without his hair.

My defenses are down

FRANK BUTLER and MALE CHORUS:

I might as well surrender

For the battle can't be won.

FRANK BUTLER:

But I must confess that I like it,

So there's nothing to be done.

FRANK BUTLER and MALE CHORUS:

Yes, I must confess that I like it

Being miserable's gonna be fun

9.I'M AND INDIAN TOO

ANNIE OAKLEY and INDIAN CHORUS:

Ook-a-looka

Gah-hay-la-kinka

La-ha-hoo-way

Hoo-way

ANNIE:

Like the Chippewa,

Iroquois,

Omaha...

Like those Indians

I'm an Indian too

A Sioux

A Sioux

Just like Rising Moon

Falling Pants

Running Nose

Like those Indians

I'm an Indian too

A Sioux

A Sioux

Some Indian drummers they're without a care

I may run away

With Big Chief Sun-of-A-Bear

And I'll have totem poles

Tomahawk

Small papoose

Which will go to prove

I'm an Indian too

A sioux

A sioux

A sioux

Oh, I'm an indian

I'm an Indian

I'm an honest Injun Indian

I'm an Indian, too.

10.I GOT LOST IN HIS ARMS

ANNIE OAKLEY:

Don't ask me just how it happens,

I wish I knew.

I can't believe that it's happened,

And still it's true.

I got lost in his arms

And I had to stay;

It was dark in his arms

And I lost my way.

From the dark came a voice

And it seemed to say,

There you go,

There you go.

How I felt as I fell

I just can't recall.

But his arms held me fast

And it broke the fall.

And I said to my heart,

As it foolishly kept jumping

All around,

I got lost,

But look what I've found.

CHORUS:

There you go

There you go

ANNIE OAKLEY:

How I felt as I fell

I just can't recall.

But his arms held me fast

As it broke the fall.

And I said to my heart,

As it foolishly kept jumping

All around,

I got lost,

But look what I've found.

11.I'VE GOT THE SUN IN THE MORNING

ANNIE OAKLEY:

Got no diamond, got no pearl,

Still I think I'm a lucky girl.

I've got the sun in the morning

And the moon at night.

Got no mansion, got no yacht,

Still I'm happy with what I got.

I've got the sun in the morning

And the moon at night

Sunshine gives me a lovely day,

Moonlight gives me the Milky Way.

Got no checkbooks, got no banks,

Still, I'd like to express my thanks.

I've got the sun in the morning

And the moon at night.

And with the sun in the morning

And the moon in the evening

I'm alright.

Got no butler, got no maid.

Still I think I've been overpaid,

I've got the sun in the morning

And the moon at night.

Got no silver, got no gold,

What you've got can't be bought or sold.

I've got the sun in the morning

And the moon at night.

Sunshine gives me a lovely day,

Moonlight gives me the Milky Way.

Got no heirlooms for my kin,

Made no will but when I cash in

I'll leave the sun in the morning

And the moon at night.

And with the sun in the morning

And the moon in the evening

I'm alright.

CHORUS:

Got no mansion, got no yacht,

Still I'm happy with what I got.

I've got the sun in the morning

And the moon at night.

Sunshine gives me a lovely day,

Moonlight gives me the Milky Way.

ANNIE OAKLEY:

Got no checkbooks, got no banks,

Still, I'd like to express my thanks

CHORUS:

We've got the sun in the morning

And the moon at night.

ANNIE OAKLEY:

And with the sun in the morning

And the moon in the evening

I'm alright!

13.THERE'S NO BUSINESS LIKE SHOW BUSINESS

MEN'S CHORUS:

The costumes, the scenery, the makeup, the props

The audience that lifts you when you're down

WOMEN'S CHORUS:

The headaches, the heartaches, the backaches, the flops

The sheriff who escorts you out of town

MEN'S CHORUS:

The opening when your heart beats like a drum

WOMEN'S CHORUS:

The closing when the customers won't come

ALLS:

There's no business like show business

Like no business I know

MEN'S CHORUS:

Everything about it is appealing

WOMEN'S CHORUS:

Everything the traffic will allow

MEN'S CHORUS:

No where could you have that happy feeling

ALLL:

When you aren't stealing that extra bow

There's no people like show people

They smile when they are low

MEN'S CHORUS:

Yesterday they told you you would not go far

WOMEN'S CHORUS:

That night you opened and there you are

MEN'S CHORUS:

Next day on your dressing room they've hung a star

ALL:

Let's go on with the show

MEN'S CHORUS:

The cowboys, the wrestlers, the tumblers, the clowns

The roustabouts that move the show at dawn

WOMEN'S CHORUS:

The music, the spotlights, the people, the towns

Your baggage with the labels pasted on

MEN'S CHORUS:

The sawdust and the horses and the smell

WOMEN'S CHORUS:

The towel you've taken from the last hotel

ALL:

There's no business like show business

If you tell me it's so

Traveling through the country is so thrilling

Standing out in front on opening nights

Smiling as you watch the benches filling

And see your billing up there in lights

There's no people like show people

They smile when they are low

Even with a turkey that you know will fold

You may be stranded out in the cold

Still you wouldn't trade it for a sack o' gold

Let's go on with the show

Let's go on with the show!

The show!

The show!

I only know that falling in love is grand

And to hold a girl in your arms

Wonderful...

In every way

So they say.

Doin' What Comes Natur'lly

Folks are dumb where I come from

They ain't had any learnin'

Still they're happy as can be

Doin' what comes natur'lly

Doin' what comes natur'lly

Folks like us could never fuss

With schools and books and learnin'

Still we've gone from A to Z

Doin' what comes natur'lly

Doin' what comes natur'lly

You don't have to know how to read or write

When you're out with a feller in the pale moonlight

You don't have to look in a book to find

What he thinks of the moon or what is on his mind

That comes natur'lly

That comes natur'lly

My uncle out in Texas

Can't even write his name

He signs his checks with X's

But they cash 'em just the same

If you saw my pa and ma

You'd no they had no learnin'

Still they raised a family

Doin' what comes natur'lly

Doin' what comes natur'lly

[2]

Uncle Jed has never read

An almanac on drinkin'

Still he's always on a spree

Doin' what comes natur'lly

Doin' what comes natur'lly

Sister Sal who's mus-i-cal

Has never had a lesson

Still she's learned to sing off-key

Doin' what comes natur'lly

Doin' what comes natur'lly

You don't have to go to a private school

Not to pick up a penny by a stubborn mule

You don't have to have a professor's dome

Not to go for the honey when the bee's at home

That comes natur'lly

That comes natur'lly

My tiny baby brother

Who's never read a book

Knows one sex from the other

All he had to do was look

Grandpa Bill is on the hill

With someone he just married

There he is at ninety-three

Doin' what comes natur'lly

Doin' what comes natur'lly

[3]

Sister Lou ain't got a soul

Although she goes out shoppin'

She gets all her stockings free

Doin' what comes natur'lly

Doin' what comes natur'lly

Cousin Nell can't add or spell

But she left school with honors

She got every known degree

For doin' what comes natur'lly

Doin' what comes natur'lly

You don't have to come from a great big town

Not to clean out a stable in an evening gown

You don't have to mix with the Vanderbilts

Not to take off your panties when you're wearing kilts

That comes natur'lly

That comes natur'lly

My mother's cousin Carrie

Won't ever change her name

She doesn't want to marry

And her children feel the same

Sister Rose has lots of beaus

Although we have no parlor

She does fine behind a tree

Doin' what comes natur'lly

Doin' what comes natur'lly

I'm An Indian Too

Like the Seminole, Navajo, Kickapoo

Like those Indians

I'm an Indian too

A Sioux

A Sioux

Just like Battle Axe, Hatchet Face, Eagle Nose

Like those Indians

I'm an Indian too

A Sioux

A Sioux

Some Indian summer's day

Without a sound

I may hide away

With Big Chief Hole-in-the-Ground

And I'll have totem poles, tomahawks, pipes of peace

Which will go to prove

I'm an Indian too

A Sioux

A Sioux

With my chief in his teepee

We'll raise an Indian family

And I'll be busy night and day

Looking like a flour sack

With two papooses on my back

And three papooses on the way

Like the Chippewa, Iroquois, Omaha

Like those Indians

I'm an Indian too

A Sioux

A Sioux

Just like Rising Moon, Falling Pants, Running Nose

Like those Indians

I'm an Indian too

A Sioux

A Sioux

Some Indian summer's day

Without a care

I may run away

With Big Chief Son-of-a-Bear

And I'll wear moccasins, wampum beads, feather hats

Which will go to prove

I'm an Indian too

A Sioux

A Sioux

I Got Lost In His Arms

Don't ask me just how it happened

I wish I knew

I can't believe that it's happened

And still it's true

I got lost in his arms and I had to stay

It was dark in his arms and I lost my way

From the dark came a voice

And it seemed to say

There you go

There you go

How I felt as I fell I just can't recall

But his arms held me fast and it broke the fall

And I said to my heart

As it foolishly kept jumping all around

I got lost but look what I found

I Got The Sun In The Morning

Taking stock of what I have and what I haven't

What do I find?

The things I got will keep me satisfied

Checking up on what I have and what I haven't

What do I find?

A healthy balance on the credit side

Got no diamond

Got no pearl

Still I think I'm a lucky girl

I got the sun in the morning and the moon at night

I got the sun in the morning and the moon at night

Got no mansion

Got no yacht

Still I'm happy with what I got

I got the sun in the morning and the moon at night

I got the sun in the morning and the moon at night

Sunshine

Gives me a lovely day

Moonlight

Gives me the Milky Way

Got no checkbooks

Got no banks

Still I'd like to express my thanks

I got the sun in the morning and the moon at night

I got the sun in the morning and the moon at night

And with the sun in the morning

And the moon in the evening

I'm all right

[2]

Got no mansion

Got no yacht

Still I'm happy with what I got

I got the sun in the morning and the moon at night

I got the sun in the morning and the moon at night

Got no silver

Got no gold

What I got can't be bought or sold

I got the sun in the morning and the moon at night

I got the sun in the morning and the moon at night

Sunshine

Gives me a lovely day

Moonlight

Gives me the Milky Way

Got no checkbooks

Got no banks

Still I'd like to express my thanks

I got the sun in the morning and the moon at night

And with the sun in the morning

And the moon in the evening

I'm all right

[3]

Sunshine

Gives me a lovely day

Moonlight

Gives me the Milky Way

Got no heirlooms

For my kin

Made no will but when I cash in

I leave the sun in the morning and the moon at night

And with the sun in the morning

And the moon in the evening they're all right

Moonshine Lullaby

Behind the hill

There's a busy little still

Where your pappy's workin' in the moonlight

Your lovin' pa

Isn't quite within the law

So he's hidin' there behind the hill

Bye bye, baby

Stop your yawnin'

Don't cry, baby

Day will be dawnin'

And when it does

From the mountain where he was

He'll be comin' with a jug of moonshine

So count your sheep

Mama's singin' you to sleep

With a moonshine lullaby

Dream of pappy

Very happy

With his jug of mountain rye

So count your sheep

Mama's singin' you to sleep

With a moonshine lullaby

My Defenses Are Down

I've had my way with so many girls

And it was lots of fun

My system was to know many girls

'Twould keep me safe from one

I find it can't be done

My defenses are down

She's broken my resistance

And I don't know where I am

I went into the fight like a lion

But I came out like a lamb

My defenses are down

She's got me where she wants me

And I can't escape nohow

I could speak to my heart when it weakened

But my heart won't listen now

Like a toothless, clawless tiger

Like an organ grinder's bear

Like a knight without his armor

Like Samson without his hair

My defenses are down

I might as well surrender

For the battle can't be won

But I must confess that I like it

So there's nothing to be done

Yes, I must confess that I like it

Being mis'rable is gonna be fun

The Girl That I Marry

The girl that I marry will have to be

As soft and as pink as a nursery

The girl I call my own

Will wear satins and laces and smell of cologne

Her nails will be polished and in her hair

She'll wear a gardenia and I'll be there

'Stead of flittin'

I'll be sittin'

Next to her

And she'll purr

Like a kitten

A doll I can carry

The girl that I marry

Must be

There's No Business Like Show Business

There's no business like show business

Like no business I know

Everything about it is appealing

Everything the traffic will allow

Nowhere could you get that happy feeling

When you are stealing

That extra bow

There's no people like show people

They smile when they are low

Yesterday they told you you would not go far

That night you open and there you are

Next day on your dressing room they've hung a star

Let's go on with the show

The cowboys, the wrestlers, the tumblers, the clowns

The roustabouts that move the show at dawn

The music, the spotlight, the people, the towns

Your baggage with the labels pasted on

The sawdust and the horses and the smell

The towel you've taken from the last hotel

There's no business like show business

Like no business I know

You get word before the show has started

That your favorite uncle died at dawn

Top of that, your ma and pa have parted

You're broken-hearted

But you go on

There's no people like show people

They don't run out of dough

Angels come from everywhere with lots of jack

And when you lose it there's no attack

Where could you get money that you don't give back?

Let's go on with the show

The costumes, the scenery, the make-up, the props

The audience that lifts you when you're down

The headaches, the heartaches, the backaches, the flops

The sheriff who escorts you out of town

The op'ning when your heart beats like a drum

The closing when the customers won't come

There's no business like show business

Like no business I know

Everything about it is appealing

Everything the traffic will allow

Nowhere could you get that happy feeling

When you are stealing

That extra bow

There's no people like show people

They smile when they are low

Even with a turkey that you know will fold

You may be stranded out in the cold

Still you wouldn't 'change for a sack of gold

Let's go on with the show

Let's go on with the show

They Say It's Wonderful

[ANNIE:]

They say that falling in love

Is wonderful

It's wonderful

So they say

And with a moon up above

It's wonderful

It's wonderful

So they tell me

I can't recall who said it

I know I never read it

I only know they tell me that love is grand

And

The thing that's known as romance

Is wonderful

Wonderful

In every way

So they say

[FRANK:]

Rumors fly and they often leave a doubt

But you've come to the right place to find out

Everything that you've heard is really so

I've been there once or twice and I should know

You'll find that falling in love

Is wonderful

It's wonderful

As they say

And with a moon up above

It's wonderful

It's wonderful

As they tell you

You leave your house some morning

And without any warning

You're stopping people shouting that love is grand

And

To hold a man in your arms

Is wonderful

Wonderful

In every way

[ANNIE:]

I should say

Who Do You Love I Hope?

I've got the question

I've had it for days

You've got the answer, dear

I'll put the question

In one little phrase

Say what I want to hear

Who do you love I hope

Who would you kiss I hope

Who is it going to be

I hope, I hope, I hope it's me

Who do you want I hope

Who do you need I hope

Who is it going to be

I hope, I hope, I hope it's me

Is it the baker who gave you a cake

I saw that look in his eye

Is it the butcher who brought you a steak

Say that it is and I'll die

Who do you love I hope

Who would you kiss I hope

Who is it going to be

I hope, I hope, I hope it's me

[2]

I heard your question

The answer you know

Love is my middle name

You asked a question

That worried you so

Mind if I do the same

Who do you love I hope

Who would you kiss I hope

Who is it going to be

I hope, I hope, I hope it's me

Who do you want I hope

Who do you need I hope

Who is it going to be

I hope, I hope, I hope it's me

Is it the blondie who acted so shy

I heard the things that she said

Is it the redhead who gave you the eye

Say that it is and your dead

Who do you love I hope

Who would you kiss I hope

Who is it going to be

I hope, I hope, I hope it's me

You Can't Get A Man With A Gun

Oh, my mother was frightened by a shotgun they say

That's why I'm such a wonderful shot

I'd be out in the cactus and I'd practice all day

And now tell me what have I got

I'm quick on the trigger

With targets not much bigger

Than a pinpoint - I'm number one

But my score with a feller

Is lower than a cellar

Oh, you can't get a man with a gun

When I'm with a pistol

I sparkle like a crystal

Yes, I shine like the morning sun

But I lose all my luster

When with a bronco buster

Oh, you can't get a man with a gun

With a gu-un

With a gu-un

No, you can't get a man with a gun

If I went to battle

With someone's herd of cattle

You'd have steak when the job was done

But if I shot the herder

They'd holler bloody murder

And you can't shoot a male

In the tail

Like a quail

Oh, you can't get a man with a gun

[2]

If I shot a rabbit

Some furrier would grab it

For a coat that would warm someone

But you can't shoot a lover

And use him for a cover

Oh, you can't get a man with a gun

The gals with umbrellers

Are always out with fellers

In the rain or the blazing sun

But a man never trifles

With gals who carry rifles

Oh, you can't get a man with a gun

With a gu-un

With a gu-un

No, you can't get a man with a gun

A Tom, Dick or Harry

Will build a house for Carrie

When the preacher has made them one

But he can't build you houses

With buckshot in his trousers

For a man may be hot

But he's not

When he's shot

Oh, you can't get a man with a gun

Colonel Buffalo Bill

Who's got the stuff that made the Wild West wild?

Who pleases ev'ry woman, man and child?

Who does his best to give the customers a thrill?

-Who?

Colonel Buff'lo Bill

Who's got the show that gets the most applause?

Five hundred Indians and fifty squaws

Ten feature acts and there's the special feature still

-Who?

Colonel Buff'lo Bill

Did you ever see a cowboy rope a steer?

-No, we haven't

Or an Indian with feathers throw a spear?

-No, we haven't

Or a marksman shoot an earring from an ear?

-No, we haven't

Did you ever see a hold up?

-No, sir

Then gather closer

And let me give you some of the atmosphere

The hour is midnight and all is still

We see the stagecoach climbing up a hill

Going along a mountain trail carrying passengers and mail

Never suspecting danger as they roll along

The watchful driver is in his seat

His trusty rifle lying at his feet

Some of the passengers inside seem to be dozing as they ride

Never suspecting there is something really wrong

Suddenly there's a shout

-What is it all about?

What is it all about you ask? It's Indians

-Indians!

Indians

-Indians!

Very notable, cut your throat-able Indians

-Indians!

Just when they've taken ev'ryone by force

Who makes an entrance on a big white horse?

Who starts a' shootin' till there's no one left to kill

-Gen'ral Grant?

No! Colonel Buff'lo Bill!

-Certainly this is quite a thrill, better than all the vaudeville

-Let us be on the go and see the show withh Buff'lo Bill

Doin' What Comes Natur'lly

[1]

Folks are dumb where I come from

They ain't had any learnin'

Still they're happy as can be

Doin' what comes natur'lly

Doin' what comes natur'lly

Folks like us could never fuss

With schools and books and learnin'

Still we've gone from A to Z

Doin' what comes natur'lly

Doin' what comes natur'lly

You don't have to know how to read or write

When you're out with a feller in the pale moonlight

You don't have to come from a great big town

Not to go pickin' berries in an evening gown

That comes natur'lly

That comes natur'lly

My uncle out in Texas can't even write his name

He signs his checks with X's but they cash them just the same

Grandpa Dick was always sick

But never saw a doctor

He just died at ninety-three

Doin' what comes natur'lly

Doin' what comes natur'lly

[2]

Cousin jack insured his shack

And now he plays with matches

He'll collect just wait and see

Doin' what comes natur'lly

Doin' what comes natur'lly

Sister Sal who's mus-i-cal

Has never had a lesson

Still she's learned to sing off-key

Doin' what comes natur'lly

Doin' what comes natur'lly

You don't have to go to a private school

Not to pick up a penny by a stubborn mule

You don't have to have a professor's dome

Not to go for the honey when the bee's at home

That comes natur'lly

That comes natur'lly

My uncle don't pay taxes, his address never gives

They can't collect his taxes for they don't know where he lives

Uncle Ben got angry when

They caught him stealing chickens

I'm within my rights, said he

Doin' what comes natur'lly

Doin' what comes natur'lly

I'll Share It All With You

[TOMMY:]

What is mine, dear, will be yours

When the sun shines and when it pours

Summer, Winter, Spring and Fall

Fifty-fifty in ev'rything

Haven't got much, even that much to my name

Fortune's door shut, can't get in, but just the same

My ear for music, my feet for dancing, my lips for kissing

I'll share it all with you

My sense of humor, my disposition, my rosy future

I'll share it all with you

Someday, honey, I'll have money

You know what that brings

Furs and diamond rings

And besides those things

There'll be

My ear for music, my feet for dancing, my lips for kissing

I'll share it all with you

[WINNIE:]

My head for thinking, my face for smiling, my hands for cooking

I'll share it all with you

My understanding, my loving nature, my good intentions

I'll share it all with you

I'm not twenty but there's plenty

Underneath my hat

I know where I'm at

And on top of that

There'll be

My ear for music, my feet for dancing, my lips for kissing

I'll share it all with you

I'm A Bad, Bad Man

[FRANK:]

I'm honored, I'm flattered, this greeting really mattered

This welcome is grand but I'm really concerned

I like your attention, but this I have to mention

You're playing with fire and you're apt to get burned

There's a girl in Tennessee

Who's sorry she met up with me

Can't go back to Tennessee

I'm a bad, bad man

There's a girl in Omaha

But I ran faster than her pa

Can't go back to Omaha

I'm a bad, bad man

There's a girl in Wyoming and they're combing Wyoming

To find the man in white who was out with her that night

There's a girl in Arkansas

The sheriff is her brother-in-law

Can't go back to Arkansas

I'm a bad, bad man

[GIRLS:]

You're making too much fuss

For we don't give a tinker's cuss

We've been out, yes, each of us

With a bad, bad man

We've been chasing up and down

That other show has just left town

And the one who played the clown

Was a bad, bad man

You may love us and leave us, but the parting won't grieve us

We'll turn the other cheek when the minstrels come next week

When the show folks come to call

A girl may slip but she won't fall

We'll give some but won't give all

To a bad, bad man

[FRANK:]

For years I have yearned to play towns I could return to

And "this may be it" from the way that you speak

I'm glad you're not frightened, the atmosphere has brightened

And now let's make plans for a wonderful week

Monday when my show is done

I'll teach you how to shoot a gun

You may find it lots of fun

With a bad, bad man

Tuesday there's no matinee

But I'll be in my tent all day

You can come around and play

With a bad, bad man

Send your mothers on Wednesday because Wednesday's old hens' day

But Thursday is sublime, I'll have lots of open time

Friday night will be the test

If Saturday you're still my guest

Sunday you can come and rest

With a bad, bad man

I Got Lost In His Arms

Don't ask me just how it happened

I wish I knew

I can't believe that it's happened

And still it's true

I got lost in his arms and I had to stay

It was dark in his arms and I lost my way

From the dark came a voice, and it seemed to say

"There you go

There you go"

How I felt as I fell I just can't recall

But his arms held me fast, and it broke the fall

And I said to my heart as it foolishly kept jumping all around

"I got lost but look what I found"

Old-Fashioned Wedding, An (1966)

[Interpolated in 1966 revival]

[FRANK:]

We'll have an old-fashioned wedding

Blessed in the good old-fashioned way

I'll vow to love you forever

You'll vow to love and honor and obey

Somewhere in some little chapel

Someday when orange blossoms bloom

We'll have an old-fashioned wedding

A simple wedding for an old-fashioned bride and groom

[ANNIE:]

I wanna wedding in a big church with bridesmaids and flower girls

A lot of ushers in tailcoats, reporters and photographers

A ceremony by a bishop who will tie the knot and say

"Do you agree to love and honor?" Love and honor, yes, but not obey

I wanna wedding ring surrounded by diamonds in platinum

A big reception at the Waldorf with champagne and caviar

I wanna wedding like the Vanderbilts have, ev'rything big, not small

If I can't have that kind of a wedding I don't wanna get married at all

[Coda:]

[FRANK:]

We'll have an old-fashioned wedding

[ANNIE:]

If it's not a big wedding I don't wanna get married at all

There's No Business Like Show Business

[1]

The butcher, the baker, the grocer, the clerk

Are secretly unhappy men because

The butcher, the baker, the grocer, the clerk

Get paid for what they do but no applause

They'd gladly bid their dreary jobs good-bye

For anything theatrical and why

There's no business like show business

Like no business I know

Ev'rything about it is appealing

Ev'rything the traffic will allow

Nowhere could you get that happy feeling

When you are stealing that extra bow

There's no people like show people

They smile when they are low

Even with a turkey that you know will fold

You may be stranded out in the cold

Still you wouldn't change for a sack of gold

Let's go on with the show

[2]

The costumes, the scen'ry, the make-up, the props

The audience that lifts you when you're down

The headaches, the heartaches, the backaches, the flops

The sheriff who escorts you out of town

The opening when your heart beats like a drum

The closing when the customers won't come

There's no business like show business

Like no business I know

You get word before the show has started

That your favorite uncle died at dawn

Top of that, your ma and pa have parted

You're broken-hearted, but you go on

There's no people like show people

They don't run out of dough

Yesterday they told you you would not go far

That night you open and there you are

Next day on your dressing room they've hung a star

Let's go on with the show

[3]

The cowboys, the tumblers, the wrestlers, the clowns

The roustabouts who move the show at dawn

The music, the spotlight, the people, the towns

Your baggage with the labels pasted on

The sawdust and the horses and the smell

The towel you've taken from the last hotel

There's no business like show business

If you tell me it's so

Trav'ling thro' the country will be thrilling

Standing out in front on opening nights

Smiling as you watch the benches filling

And your billing out there in lights

There's no people like show people

They don't run out of dough

Angels come from ev'rywhere with lots of jack

And when you lose it, there's no attack

Where could you get money that you don't give back

Let's go on with the show

They Say It's Wonderful

[ANNIE:]

Rumors fly and you can't tell where they start

Speci'lly when it concerns a person's heart

I've heard tales that could set my heart aglow

Wish I knew if the things I hear are so

They say that falling in love is wonderful

It's wonderful, so they say

And with a moon up above, it's wonderful

It's wonderful, so they tell me

I can't recall who said it

I know I never read it

I only know they tell me that love is grand

And

The thing that's known as romance

Is wonderful

Wonderful

In ev'ry way

So they say

[2]

[FRANK:]

Rumors fly and they often leave a doubt

But you've come to the right place to find out

Ev'rything that you've heard is really so

I've been there once or twice and I should know

You'll find that falling in love is wonderful

It's wonderful

[ANNIE:]

So you say

[FRANK:]

And with a moon up above, it's wonderful

It's wonderful

[ANNIE:]

So you tell me

[FRANK:]

To leave your house some morning and without any warning

You're stopping people shouting that love is grand

And

To hold a man in your arms is wonderful

Wonderful

In every way

[ANNIE:]

So you say

You Can't Get A Man With A Gun

Oh, my mother was frightened by a shotgun they say

That's why I'm such a wonderful shot

I'd be out in the cactus and I'd practice all day

And now tell me what have I got

I'm quick on the trigger

With targets not much bigger

Than a pinpoint - I'm number one

But my score with a feller

Is lower than a cellar

Oh, you can't get a man with a gun

When I'm with a pistol

I sparkle like a crystal

Yes, I shine like the morning sun

But I lose all my luster

When with a bronco buster

Oh, you can't get a man with a gun

With a gu-un

With a gu-un

No, you can't get a man with a gun

If I went to battle

With someone's herd of cattle

You'd have steak when the job was done

But if I shot the herder

They'd holler bloody murder

And you can't get a hug

From a mug

With a slug

Oh, you can't get a man with a gun

[2]

I'm cool, brave and daring

To see a lion glaring

When I'm out with my Remington

But a look from a mister

Will raise a fever blister

Oh, you can't get a man with a gun

The gals with umbrellers

Are always out with fellers

In the rain or the blazing sun

But a man never trifles

With gals who carry rifles

Oh, you can't get a man with a gun

With a gu-un

With a gu-un

No, you can't get a man with a gun

A man's love is mighty

He'll even buy a nighty

For a gal who he thinks is fun

But they don't buy pajamas

For pistol packin' mamas

Oh, you can't shoot a male

In the tail

Like a quail

Oh, you can't get a man with a gun
