  • Song Lyrics:
    Along the trail you'll find me lopin'
    Where the spaces are wide open,
    In the land of the old A.E.C. Yee-hoo!
    Where the scenery's attractive,
    And the air is radioactive,
    Oh, the Wild West is where I wanna be.

    'Mid the sagebrush and the cactus
    I'll watch the fellows practice
    Droppin' bombs through the clean desert breeze. A-ha!
    I'll have on my sombrero,
    And of course I'll wear a pair o'
    Levis over my lead B.V.D.'s.

    I will leave the city's rush,
    Leave the fancy and the plush,
    Leave the snow and leave the slush
    And the crowds.
    I will seek the desert's hush,
    Where the scenery is lush,
    How I long to see the mush--room clouds.

    'Mid the yuccas and the thistles
    I'll watch the guided missiles,
    While the old F.B.I. watches me. Yee-hoo!
    Yes, I'll soon make my appearance
    (Soon as I can get my clearance),
    'Cause the Wild West is where I wanna be.
