Cow Cow Boogie
Freddie Slack 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.

Heavens to Murgatroid ! THANKS so much for uploading his bodacious "blast from the past" ! Boogie Woogie at its best ! Perfect combo: Ella's singing and Freddie's piano ! And of course the rest of the band were strictly from wowsville too ! CHEERS !! :-)

Barry I. Grauman

Recorded on May 21, 1942.The song was intended to be introduced in Abbott & Costello's "Ride 'Em, Cowboy"- performed by Ella Fitzgerald- but was cut from the film before its release. It was also the centerpiece of a 1943 Walter Lantz "Swing Symphony" cartoon of the same name.

I love Ella Mae Morse and have loved this record since I discovered a copy (along with two other singles featuring Morse with Freddie Slack) in my grandfather's collection. Jazz great Benny Carter co-wrote this song but I notice he did not get label credit (though he did on later editions of the record and he publicly defended the song against critics who said it was stupid). Ella Mae Morse can legitimately be claimed as the first white woman rock singer, even though there's a clip of she singing this song wearing a dress that looks like she's got bull's-eyes on her breasts.

Very nearly Perfect Pop. Yippy-Tilly-Eye-Aye! ;o)

Joseph Follo

This has to be one of the dumbest songs I've ever heard. But I love it.....
