Buttons and Bows
Dinah Shore Lyrics


East is east and west is west
And the wrong one I have chose
Let's go where I'll keep on wearin'
Those frills and flowers and buttons and bows
Rings and things and buttons and bows

Don't bury me in this prairie
Take me where the cement grows
Let's move down to some big town
Where they love a gal by the cut o' her clothes
And I'll stand out in buttons and bows

I'll love you in buckskin
Or skirts that I've homespun
But I'll love ya' longer, stronger where
Yer friends don't tote a gun

My bones denounce the buckboard bounce
And the cactus hurts my toes
Let's vamoose where gals keep usin'
Those silks and satins and linen that shows
And I'm all yours in buttons and bows

My bones denounce the buckboard bounce
And the cactus hurts my toes
Let's vamoose where gals keep usin'
Those silks and satins and linen that shows
And I'm all yours in buttons and bows

Those silks and satins and linen that shows
And I'm all yours in buttons and bows
Gimme eastern trimmin' where women are women
In high silk hose and peek-a-boo clothes
And French perfume that rocks the room
And I'm all yours in buttons and bows
Buttons and bows
Buttons and bows
Those frills and flowers and buttons and bows
Rings and things and buttons and bows

I'm 20 now, born in '96 and I can't even begin to explain the completely wonderful nostalgia this brings me. I listened to this song so many times with my grammy when I was little, she is such a huge reason that I love and have an appreciation for music from this time. Thank you for uploading :)

@iSell Crack In U.S. social studies and placement, generations tend to be a big deal. About 25 years ago the term "Greatest generation" was applied to survivors of active participation in WWII. I was partly raised by my Grandparents, whom were in that. The Boomers were huge, and seemed to claim invention of Rock 'n Roll and Civil Rights. At an early age, 9 and ten years, I began to try and parse this, being a child of divorce &c. My musical tastes are somewhat eclectic, formed in the course of life. My Mom listened to Jimmy Buffett, Country Rock (Eagles &c.), some Classical and lots of bagpipe music.

I’ve always found it strange that people tend to bring up their age so often when referring to a certain music piece. Im honestly missing the point that is being made so I’d appreciate if someone explains it to me.
In regards to mentioning the year a particular song was made and saying that one likes it although it was such a long time ago I’d say that it shouldn’t be considered as something unusual (at least IMO. In fact I think its absolutely normal to enjoy a work of art that is created by professionals (for lack of a better word) who are also talented and have done it with passion and love. Art is oblivious to the factor of time and when in it’s highest form it effortlessly transcends through the ages as well as cultural, social, intellectual and many other barriers.

I just hit 50, and inherited boxes of 78s in the mid '80s, and had my musical taste warped completely. Hawaiian '20s-'40s, Argentine c1931, American & Latin pop 1905-50. Now that You Tube is here, I have them all back!

Si es una antigua canción preciosa fue lo primero que aprendí en Inglés a los 4 años y la nostalgia es grande .Nunca había oído hablar en inglés ni sabía que hubiese ese idioma!!!Mi hermana mayor la cantaba nunca más la escuché ella murió a los 19 años de edad en 1953 por lo tanto no la escuchaba hace más de 70 años GRACIAS POR DARME LA OPORTUNIDAD DE DISFRUTAR Y RECORDAR

Very good your writing the lyrics of this song. I remember having heard It a long time ago, but sung by a man with a deep voice.
