'Cow Cow Boogie', the last work off the drawing board for this Saturday's Open House, is a bit over 3" x 3".
Made famous by the likes of Ella Fitzgerald and Ella Mae Morse (two of my favorite Ellas) back in the middle of the last century, 'Cow Cow Boogie' from the motion picture 'Ride 'Em Cowboy', is a fun tune!
'Out on the plains down near Santa Fe -
I met a cowboy ridin' the range one day -
And as he jogged along, I heard him singin'
The most peculiar cowboy song -
It was a ditty, he learned in the city
Comma ti yi yi yeah -
Comma ti yippity yi yeah -
Now get along, get hip little doggies
Get along, better be on your way -
Get along, get hip little doggies -
He trucked 'em on down that old fairway
Singin' his Cow Cow Boogie in the strangest way -
Comma ti yi yi yeah
Comma ti yippity yi yeah'
