Gay Old Desperado, The

The gay old desparado from the wild and woolly west,
He rode into Chicago just to give the west a rest.
He wore a big sombrero and two pistols at his side
and everywhere he went he gave his war hoot.


Oh what a big, bold, man was this desperado.
From Cripple Creek clear down in Colorado.
And he horsed around like a big tornado.
And everywhere he went he gave his war hoot.

He went to Cooney Island just to take in all the sights.
He saw the hoochie coochies and the girls all dressed in tights.
It got him so excited that he shot out all the lights.
And everywhere he went he gave his war hoot.


The gay desperado was a strollin' down the street.
A big, old fat policeman came a stompin' down the street
He took him by the collar and he took him by the seat.
And put him where he couldn't give his war hoot.
