Johnny Mercer – G.I. Jive lyrics

A Gal In Calico
Johnny Mercer
Music and Lyrics by Arthur Schwartz and Leo Robin

Met a gal in calico, down in Santa Fe;
Used to be her Sunday beau til I rode away.
Do I want her, do I want her love?
Yes siree!
Will I win her, Will I win her love?
Wait and see!
Workin with a rodeo, go from town to town.
See most evry kind a gal, evry kind a gown.
But who made my heart sing
Yippee Yi! Yippee Yo!
My little gal in calico.
Take my gal in calico, down in Santa Fe;
Guess I'd better let her know that I feel this way.
Is she waitin, is she waitin?
She better be.
Am I hopin to be ropin her?
Yes siree!
Gonna quit the rodeo, gonna settle down,
Buy a bolt of calico for a weddin gown.
Then will I fence her in
Yippee Yi! Yippee Yo!
My little gal in calico.
