BUFFALO GALS
Ahan'somegal I chanced to meet, Oh, she was fair to view!
As I was lumb'ring down de street, Down de street, down de street, A han'some gal I chanced to meet, Oh, she was fair to view!
Chorus Buffalo gals, can't you come out to-night, Can't you come out to-night, Can't you come out to-night? Buffalo gals, can't you come out to-night, And dance by de light ob de moon?
I axed her would she hab some talk, Hab some talk, hab some talk. Her feet covered up de whole sidewalk, As she stood close by me.
Chorus
I axed her would she hab a dance, Hab a dance, hab a dance. I thought dat I might get a chance, To shake a foot wid her.
Chorus
