Cow Cow Boogie
Ella Mae Morse Lyrics


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 singing
A most peculiar cowboy song
It was a ditty, he learned in the city
Comma ti yi yi yeah
Comma ti yippity yi yeah

Get along, get hip little doggies
Get along, better be on your way
Get along, get hip little doggies
And he trucked them on down the old fairway
Singin' his cow cow boogie in the strangest way
Comma ti yi yi yeah
Comma ti yippity yi yeah

Singin' his cowboy song
He's just too much
He's got a knocked out western accent with a Harlem touch
He was raised on local weed
He's what you call a swing half breed
Singin' his cow cow boogie in the strangest way
Comma ti yi yi yeah
Comma ti yippity yi yeah

Get along little doggie, better be on your way, your way,
Get along little doggie
And he trucked them on down the old fairway
Singin' his cow cow boogie in the strangest way
Comma ti yi yi yeah
Comma ti yippity yi yeah.

Yip yip singing his cowboy song
Yip yip as he was joggling along
Yip yip he sings with a harlem touch
Yip yip that guy is just too much
Singing his cow cow boogie in the strangest way
Comma ti yi yi yi yi yi yeah.

This is an awesome song performed by a great singer!
Out on the plains, down near Santa Fe
I met a cowboy riding the range one day
And as he jogged along, I heard him singing
A most peculiar cowboy song
It was a ditty he learned in the city
Ah, comma ti, ii, yi, aay, comma ti, yipply, yi, aay
Get along, get hip, little doggies
Get along, better be on your way
Get along, get hip, little doggies
And he trucked 'em on down the old fairway
Singing his cow, cow boogie in the strangest way
Comma ti, ii, yi, aay, comma ti, yipply, ii, aay
Singing his cowboy songs, he's just too much
He's got a knocked out western accent
With a Harlem touch, he was raised on loco weed
He's what you call a swing half-breed
Singing his cow, cow boogie in the strangest way
Comma ti, ii, yi, aay, comma ti, yipply, ii, aay
Get along, little doggie
Better be on your way, your way
G-get along, little doggie
And he trucked 'em on down the old fairway
Singing his cow, cow boogie in the strangest way
Comma ti ii-yi aay, comma ti yipply ii aay
Yip yip, singing his cowboy songs
Yip yip as he was juggling along
Yip yip, he sings with a Harlem touch
Yip yip, that cat is just too much
Singing his cow, cow boogie, in the strangest way
Comma ti, ii, ii, ii, ii, aay

i love the way women looked and sounded in the 40s

Denis David Bolton

There is only one Ella Mae Morse.

The men didn't look too bad either. I look wistfully at newsreel footage and movies of the era, including pan shots of fans at sporting events. Ordinary people dressed so much more tastefully and respectfully and neatly than they do now. Mind you, I'm glad my preference for polo shirts and cargo pocket pants doesn't make me stand out from the rest of the slovenly dressed rabble but still I wish we could have a little more variety than we do.

@J kK They had real songs to sing, not the drek produced since the mid 60s. There have been one-offs in the later decades, but for me the Golden American Songbook was the height of American music. Even blues and jazz sounded better than the recent drek. I think it was because of the firmament in which all popular music was created.

@U.S. SAM What a strange comment! Ella Mae Morse looks - and I have no doubt was - fragrant. I am sure many women of that era were also as clean and sweet.

She was the best! And was one of the rock and roll pioneers!

Ella Mae was a gifted hit maker and a socko performer.  What a voice!  What style! And she was beautiful and stylish too.

1942 , July 25
Capitol Records achieved their first #1 hit with a song called "Cow Cow Boogie" by 17-year-old Ella Mae Morse, accompanied by Freddie Slack And His Orchestra. Although Ella Mae's follow-up recordings sold fairly well, she never obtained a huge following, but continued to make records until 1957.
