The Pony Express

Come back with me folks,
Come back with me folks,
To the dear old Golden West,
Where red and white men,
Were always fightin'.
Where Jesse James was at his best.
Just see those miners,
Those forty-niners,
A loungin' 'round in wild and wooly dress.
This is their Holiday,
That's why they're acting gay.
They're waiting for the Pony express.

Chorus

Oh.
Here it comes now,
Giddy yap, Giddy yap, Giddy yap.
Here it comes now,
Giddy yap, Giddy yap, Giddy yap.
Just see that Pony run,
Guess he can drive her some,
He knows he's bringing news from mothers,
Good advice from Dad's and brothers.
That's why he cries,
Giddy yap, Giddy yap, Giddy yap.
Just see him as he yells out "whoa thar Bess,"
See him throw their mail,
Answer ev'ry one's hail,
Mount that fresh horse near by,
Ride away with a cry,
That's the coming and the going of the Pony Express.

There's Bronco Harry,
He's heard from Carry,
Now he's happy as can be.
And even Ching-lee,
The camp cook chinee,
Has news from far across the sea.
Some hearts are gladdened,
Some others saddened,
But no matter what the news they all confess,
They feel much better when
They see the letter men,
The men who drive the Pony Express.

Chorus

Oh.
Here it comes now,
Giddy yap, Giddy yap, Giddy yap.
Here it comes now,
Giddy yap, Giddy yap, Giddy yap.
Just see that Pony run,
Guess he can drive her some,
He knows he's bringing news from mothers,
Good advice from Dad's and brothers,
That's why he cries,
Giddy yap, Giddy yap, Giddy yap.
Just see him as he yells out "whoa thar Bess,"
See him throw their mail,
Answer ev'ry one's hail,
Mount that fresh horse near by,
Ride away with a cry,
That's the coming and the going of the Pony Express.
Whee!
