Too hot for you, Uncle Fudd?
Down from the Rio Grande
Oh where the west is wild all around the borderland
I'm a pioneer who began from scratch
I don't bat an eye in a shootin' match.
They don't call me Elmer, they call me Satch.
Yippie yi yo kayah
Yippie yi yo kayah

Get along little horsy
Get along little horsy
Yippie yi yo kayah, oHey Jim, you better get out the rig,
woo-oo-woo-oo-woo-oo-woo-oo-woo-woo

All the way from Philadelphia
On the Atchison, Topeka and the Santa Fe

Oh, I'm packin' my grip and I'm leavin' today
'Cause I'm takin' a trip, California way
I'm gonna settle down and never more roam
And make the San Fernando Valley my home

I'll forget my sins, yes, yes, I'll be makin' new friends
Where the West begins and the sunset ends
'Cause I've decided where yours truly really oughta be
And it's the San Fernando Valley for me
