"Buttons and Bows" as written by Ray Evans and Jay Livingston....
VM A WESTERN RANCH IS JUST A BRANCH OF
NOWHERE JUNCTION TO ME.
GIVE ME THAT CITY,
WHERE THE LIVING'S PRETTY,
AND THE GIRLS WEAR FINERY.

MM DO DO WAH, DO DO WAH DOOOOO.

VM&MM EAST IS EAST AND WEST IS WEST,
AND THE WRONG ONE I HAVE CHOSE.
VM LET'S GO WHERE YOU'LL KEEP ON WEARING,
THOSE FRILLS AND FLOWERS
AND BUTTONS AND BOWS.
MM RINGS AND THINGS AND BUTTONS AND BOWS.

VM&MM SO WE'LL ALL STEP OUT IN BUTTONS AND BOWS.

VM DON'T BURY ME IN THIS PRAIRIE,
TAKE ME WHERE THE CEMENT GROWS.
VM&MM LET'S MOVE DOWN TO SOME BIG TOWN,
WHERE THEY LOVE A GAL,
BY THE CUT OF HER CLOTHES.
VM AND YOU'LL STAND OUT IN BUTTONS AND BOWS.

MM WE'LL LOVE YOU IN BUCKSKINS,
AND CLOTHES THAT WE'VE HOME SPUN.
VM BUT I'LL LOVE YA LONGER, STRONGER,
WHERE YOUR FRIENDS DON'T TOTE A GUN.

VM MY BONES DENOUNCED,
THE BUCKBOARD BOUNCED
AND THE CACTUS HURTS MY TOES.
MM LET'S VAMOOSE WHERE GALS KEEP USIN'THOSE
VM SILKS (MM)SILKS
VM AND SATINS (MM) SATINS
VM AND LINEN (MM)LINEN (VM)THAT SHOWS AND
VM&MM YOU'RE ALL MINE,
IN BUTTONS AND BOWS.

VM GIMME EASTERN TRIMMIN'
WHERE WOMEN ARE WOMEN.
IN HIGH SILK HOSE,
AND PEEK -A- BOO CLOTHES.
AND FRENCH PERFUME,
THAT ROCKS THE ROOM. AND
VM&MM YOU'RE ALL MINE IN BUTTONS AND BOWS.

VM&MM IN BUTTONS AND BOWS SWEETHEART.
