  • Song Lyrics:



    (That famous day in history, the men of the 7th Cavalry went riding on)
    (And from the rear, a voice was heard)
    (A brave young man with a trembling word rang loud and clear)
    What am I doin' here??

    Please, Mr. Custer, I don't wanna go
    Hey, Mr. Custer, please don't make me go
    I had a dream last night about the comin' fight
    Somebody yelled, "Attack!”
    And there I stood with a arrow in my back.

    Please Mr. Custer, I don't wanna go (forward Ho!!)--aaww

    SPOKEN: Look at them bushes out there
    They're moving and there's a injun behind every one
    Hey, Mr. Custer, you mind if I be excused the rest of the afternoon?
    HEY CHARLIE, DUCK YER HEAD!!
    Hmm, you're a little bit late on that one, Charlie
    Hooh, I bet that smarts!

    (They were sure of victory, the men of the 7th Cavalry, as they rode on)
    (But then from the rear, a voice was heard)
    (That same brave voice with the trembling word rang loud and clear)
    What am I doin' here??

    Please Mr. Custer, I don't wanna go
    Listen, Mr. Custer, please don't make me go
    There's a redskin a'waitin' out there, just fixin' to take my hair
    A coward I'm bein' called, cuz I don't wanna wind up dead or bald

    Please Mr. Custer, I don't wanna go (forward HO)--aaww

    SPOKEN: I wonder what the injun word for friend is
    Let's see- friend-- kemo sabe, that's it
    KEMO SABE!, HEY OUT THERE-KEMO SABE!
    Nope, that itn't it
    Look at them durned injuns
    They're runnin' around like a bunch of wild Indians-heh, heh, heh
    Nah, this ain't no time for jokin'
