Words by Hugh Morton. Music by Gustave Kerker.

Mike-In us you see a disreputable gang.
Chorus. -Yes. we are a very tough gang, tough gang:
Mike -We'll bet ten dollars every one of us will bang.
Chorus.-We'll bet ten dollars ev'ry one of us will hung,
Every one of us will hang.
Mike -We deal in crime by the hour, day, or week.
Chorus.-By the hour, by the day or week.
Mike. -We're gold-brick bandits, and we come from Cripple Creek.
Chorus.-From the Cripple end of Cripple Creek.
Mike.-Whow! We're on airy, fairy, cheery lot of murderers,
And a nickel is our value on a life.
Chorus.-Any sanguinary job should be referred to us;
We can juggle a revolver or a knife;
We are skilled in every kind of criminality,
And we've got a lot of golden bricks to sell;
We shoot or stub a man without formality,
And the motto that we use is,
"What the---? What the---?"
And the motto that we use is,
"What the---? What the---? "
We're an---? What the---?" -[Dance.]
