East is east and west is west
And the wrong one I have chose 
Let's go where I'll keep on wearin'
 Those frills and flowers and buttons and bows
 Rings and things and buttons and bows

Don't bury me in this prairie 
Take me where the cement grows
Let's move down to some big town
 Where they love a gal by the cut of her clothes 
And I'll stand out in buttons and bows

I'll love you in buckskin 
Or skirts that I've homespun 
But I'll love you longer, stronger where
Your friends don't tote a gun

My bones denounce the buckboard bounce
And the cactus hurts my toes
Let's vamoose where gals keep usin'
 Those silks and satins and linen that shows 
And I'm all yours in buttons and bows

My bones denounce the buckboard bounce
And the cactus hurts my toes
Let's vamoose where gals keep usin'
 Those silks and satins and linen that shows 
And I'm all yours in buttons and bows

 Gimme eastern trimmin' where women are women 
In high silk hose and peek-a-boo clothes 
And French perfume that rocks the room
And I'm all yours in buttons and bows
 Buttons and bows, buttons and bows
