Well, I've been here for a million years
Got a ton or two of beef
And flies 'round my ears
I've got a name and I can see
You don't know
So I guess I'd better tell you
I'm the buffalo

Don't smoke no reefer
Don't take no pills
Got a head like a rock
And a bottom like a hill
Don't think about much
That bears translating.
Except buffalo love and ruminating

Buffalo wanting some answers
Buffalo want you explain
Buffalo seek explanation
Don't know nothing; it's a buffalo shame

Just sit around trying
To take buffalo feed
Looked up, swallowed down
Started to bleed
Men with metal sticks
Make an awful lot of noise
Don't care what it is
But dear it destroys

Buffalo falling in tens of thousands
Buffalo falling like rain
Buffalo falling and lowing and dying
Buffalo ending; it's a buffalo shame

Don't know what for
They want to shoot us down
We stay out of trouble
Stay out of town
Don't be chasing their women
Don't rob their trains
Just stand around grazing on the Western Plains

Some men do it because they want to
Seeking for fortune and fame
Other men do it because they're told to
Rot their eyes; still a buffalo shame

Buffalo shame
