Buffalo Bill

Young Will Cody, carry the mail
      Westward up a Nebraska trail!
Skirmish with an Indian band,
      And take a shot at Yellow Hand.

Folks may see your star arisin'
      When you're baggin' all those bison
As Billy Comstock comes up short.
      Now, show the Duke that prairie sport!

Then visualize exotic scenes
      Of Wild West Shows for kings and queens.
Finally, strange though it may seem,
      Stick your name on a football team.
