Hugh Martin

Hugh Martin (August 11, 1914 – March 11, 2011) was an American musical theater and film composer, arranger, vocal coach, and playwright. He was best known for his score for the 1944 MGM musical Meet Me In St. Louis, in which Judy Garland sang three Martin songs, "The Boy Next Door," "The Trolley Song," and "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas." The last of these has become a Christmas season standard in the United States and around the English-speaking world. Martin became a close friend of Garland and was her accompanist at many of her concert performances in the 1950s, including her appearances at the Palace Theater. more »

A medicine man I met 
Said don't get yourself in a sweat. 
When things look gray, 
Just shrug and say: 
"it musta been somethin' I et!" 
"so don't get yourself in a snit, " he said, 
"tuck your tantrums into your kit instead. 
"it's disarming to be charming," 
Quoth the medicine man, 
Whom all agree it's plain to see 
Nobody could be wiser than. 

So if your temper's getting a top hand, 
All you have to do is just stop and 
Pass that peace pipe and bury that hatchet 
Like the Choctaws, Chickasaws, 
Chattahoochee's, Chippewas do. 

If you're feeling mad as a wet hen, 
Mad as you can possibly get, then 
Pass that peace pipe, bury that tomahawk 
Like those Chichamecks, Cherokees, 
Chapultepec's do. 
That cold shoulder never solved a single complaint. 
When you're older, you'll wipe off all of that war 
Paint. 

If you find yourself in a fury, 
Be your own judge and your own jury. 
Pass that peace pipe and bury that hatchet 
Like the Choctaws, Chickasaws, 
Chattahoochee's, Chippewas do. 

If you want to hover out west, too, 
You will soon discover it's best to 
Pass that peace pipe and bury that hatchet 
Like the Choktohs, Changos, 
Chattanooga's, Cheekarohs do. 

Even in colonial days, you 
Know the ceremonial ways to 
Pass that peace pipe and bury that tomahawk 
Like those Chakootamees, Chepacheps 
'n' Chicopees, too. 
Pull your ears in, try to use a little control. 
When "all clear"'s in, you'll be top man on the totem 
Pole. 

So, if you wanna be an all-right guy 
Not a long face, blues-in-the-night guy 
Write that apology and dispatch it! 
When you quarrel, it's grand to patch it! 
Pass that peace pipe and bury that hatchet 

Like those Choctaws, Chickasaws, 
Chattahoochee's, Chippewas 
And those Chickadees, Cherokees, 
Chapultepecs 
And those Chakootamees, Chepacheps 
'n' Chicopees, Choktohs, Changos, 
Chattanoogas, Cheekarohs do-o-o-o
