Thin Lizzy’s BUFFALO GAL

Buffalo Gal

(Billy Lynott)

(Buffalo  . . .)

Buffalo Gal,
You’ve had your fun.
Your button’s undone
And the time’s right for slaughter.
Buffalo Gal,
You’re thirsty and there’s no more water,
Like the lamb on the altar,
And it’s sad to see you looking down and feeling blue.
Try your best to get on up and see it through!
In a while you might smile and see the sun
Oww, the day has begun.

And Buffalo Gal,
They’re closing down the old dance hall.
Ummm, Buffalo Gal,
What we gonna do now?

Buffalo Gal,
Due to these circumstances
There’s no more dances.
Buffalo Gal,
(Buffalo) all your chances of further romances
Will have to be nil,
Until I can get it sung.
Is a shame your only claim to fame is Jessie James –
You know his middle name –
That’s very strange.
Stranger, you knew a friend called the Friendly Ranger
Oh, you shared the danger.

And Buffalo Gal,
They’re closing down the old dance hall.
Ummm, Buffalo Gal,
What we gonna do now?

(Buffalo . . .)

Buffalo Gal,
You must try a big step.
You’ve got a big jump ahead!
Buffalo Gal,
The show left town
Spreading sunshine all around
And it’s bad to see you looking blue.
Dry your eyes and I’ll apologise for all the lies.
Try a smile and in a while, just in a while,
You’ll be smiling through!

Ooh, Buffalo Gal,
They’re closing down the old dance hall (Buffalo . . . Gal, Gal)
And Buffalo Gal,
Oh, you look so good somehow (Buffalo . . . Gal)
Oh Buffalo Gal,
Oh, that’s such a pretty dress (Buffalo . . . Gal)
Buffalo Gal,
The show left town (Buffalo . . . Gal, Gal)
Buffalo Gal,
Take a picture
Of Buffalo Gal (Buffalo . . .)
