Go West, Young Man
Mr Horace Greeley was no fool I'm sure that you agree with me that Greeley was no fool What he is getting at is that Mr Greeley was no fool Boy The wisdom of the man can be denied by none For he's the one that said Before you go to Buffalo to Baltimore or Borneo To Eastern Pennsylvania or Japan Go west! Young man If you go to that land, sonny You will have a lot of money If you bring the money with you when you come To the lone prairie, yippi-yi, yippi-yi Yippi-yi-yi-yi! Yippi-yi, yippi-yi, yippi-yi Before you read a travel ad And scamper off to Trinidad Too often in New York and Yucatan Go west! Young man In the East they live on doughnuts In the West the natives grow up And I guarantee you go nuts if you come To the lone prairie, yippi-yay, yippi-yay Yippi-yay-yay-yay! Yippi-yi, yippi-yi, yippi-yi A cowboy's gal is a real true pal She will stick to him right or wrong Right or wrong She don't say nothing And she don't do nothing And she don't know nothing And she don't want nothing but a horse And a cowboy, for she's just keeps rolling along Go west! Young man Go where the airport's tearing the chest, young man You can ride a bucking bronco or a pony You can cut a calf in half and make baloney Go west! Young man Go right up there and give 'em the very best you can Don't go east, don't go south, don't go north, have a care Don't go up, don't go down, don't go here, don't go there If it's true what they say about Dixie Go West! Young man Go out and till the soil there Dig for gold and you'll find oil there Where the crow flies, where the snow flies, go, there's no "no"! If you are fond of hunting there's no place that can compare You may not bag a lion or a tiger or a bear But if you want a jack-ass there are plenty of them there Go West! Young Man The judges there are very fair, they always are of course! A cowboy and his Mrs went to court for a divorce The cowboy got the children and the Mrs got the horse All Go west! Young man Yi-hi!
