Mr Custer

Language: English



(Shrieks and `Red Indian sounds' in background)

(That famous day in history)
(The men of the 7th Cavalry went riding on)
(And from the rear a voice was heard)
(A brave young man with a trembling word rang loud and clear)

What am I doin' here?

Please Mr. Custer, I don't wanna go
Hey, Mr. Custer, please don't make me go
I had a dream last night about the comin' fight
Somebody yelled "Attack!"
And there I stood with a arrow in my back.

Please Mr. Custer, I don't wanna go
(Forward, HO-O-O-O-O!) Oooohhhh

SPOKEN:
Look at them bushes out there, they're movin'
And there's a injun behind every one
Hey, Mr. Custer, you mind if I be excused the rest of the afternoon?
HEY CHARLIE, DUCK YER HEAD!!
(Sound of arrow whizzing by)
Hmm, you're a little bit late on that one, Charlie
Whooh, I bet that smarts!

(They were sure of victory
(The men of the 7th Cavalry, as they rode on)
(But then from the rear a voice was heard)
(That same brave voice with the trembling word rang loud and clear)

What am I doin' here?

Please Mr. Custer, I don't wanna go
Listen, Mr. Custer, please don't make me go
There's a redskin waitin' out there, just fixin to take my hair
A coward I've been called, cuz I don't wanna wind up dead or bald

Please Mr. Custer, I don't wanna go
(Forward, HO-O-O-O-O!) Oooohhhh

SPOKEN:
I wonder what the injun word for friend is
Let's see....friend.....kemo sabe, that's it
KEMO SABE!, HEY OUT THERE, KEMO SABE!
(Sound of arrow whizzing by)
No, that itn't it
Look at 'em out there
Runnin' around like a bunch of wild Indians, heh-heh
Nah, this ain't no time for jokin'
(Sound of arrows whizzing by)
