"The Ballad of Cat Ballou [From Cat Ballou]" as written by and Mack/livingston David....
Well now friends just lend an ear
For you're now about to hear, the ballad of Cat Ballou-ou
It's a song that's newly made and Professus and The Shade
And the Sunrise Kid are singin' it for you
Cat Ballou..., Cat Ballou ...

It's a hangin' day in Wolf City, Wyomin'
Wolf City, Wyomin', eighteen-ninety-four
They're gonna drop Cat Ballou-ou
Through the gallows floor

She killed a man in Wolf City, Wyomin'
Wolf City, Wyomin', killed a man it's true
And that is why they're a-hangin', hangin' Cat Ballou

She has the smile of an angel (Fights like the Devil)
The eyes of an angel (Bites like the Devil)
The face of an angel (I say she's the Devil)
She's mean and evil through and through

Cat Ballou, Cat Ballou-ou-ou
She's mean and evil through and through

With her outlaw band, they're now tellin' a story
Now tellin' a story, how she rode the plain
The wildest gal in the We-est, since Calamity Jane

And today's the day, that she's goin' to glory
She's goin' to glory, for the way she sinned
They'll be a-speedin' her sou-oul, on the wayward wind

She has the smile of an angel (Fights like the Devil)
The eyes of an angel (Bites like the Devil)
The face of an angel (I say she's the Devil)
She's mean and evil through and through

Cat Ballou (Cat Ballou)
Cat Ballou-ou-ou (Cat Ballou-ou-ou)
She's mean and evil through and through
Cat Ballou, Cat Ball-ou-ou-ou
She's mean and evil through and through
