ELVIRA

Eyes that look like heaven
Lips like sherry wine
That girl can sure 'nuff make my little light shine
I get a funny feeling (Where?)
Up and down my spine (That's not the only place)
Cuz I know that my Elvira's mine.

CHORUS:
I'm singin'
Elvira, Elvira
My heart's on fire, Elvira

Giddy-up a-oom-bop-a-oom-bop-a-mow-mow
Giddy-up a-oom-bop-a-oom-bop-a-mow-mow
High-ho Silver, away!

VERSE 2 (We don't usually sing this, but it's here for reference):
Tonight I'm gonna meet her at the Hungry House Cafe
And I'm gonna give her all the love I can, yes I am
She's gonna jump and holler
'Cause I saved up my last two dollars
We're gonna search and find that preacher man

[REPEAT CHORUS]

 

RAWHIDE

Rollin', rollin', rollin',
Though the streams are swollen,
Keep them dogies rollin', rawhide.
Through rain and wind and weather,
Hell bent for leather,
Wishin' my gal was by my side.
All the things I'm missin',
Good vittles, love and kissin',
Are waiting at the end of my ride.

CHORUS:
Move em on (head em up)
Head em up (move em up)
Move em on (head em up)
Rawhide!
Cut em out (ride em in)
Ride em in (cut em out)
Cut em out, ride em in
Rawhide!

VERSE 2 (If there's time!):
Keep movin', movin', movin',
Though they're disapprovin',
Keep them doggies movin'
Rawhide!
Don't try to understand 'em,
Just rope and throw and grab 'em,
Soon we'll be living high and wide.
My heart's calculatin'
My true love will be waitin',
be waiting at the end of my ride.

[REPEAT CHORUS]

ANCHORS AWAY

Anchors Aweigh my boys
Anchors Aweigh!
Farewell to college joys
We sail at break of day
Through our last night on shore
Drink to the foam
Until we meet once more
Here’s wishing you a happy voyage home!

TAKE ME OUT TO THE BALLGAME

Take me out to the ball game,
Take me out with the crowd
Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jack,
I don't care if I never get back,
Let me root, root, root for the CRABS team,
If they don't win it's a shame [It's a FLUKE!]
For it's one, two, three strikes you're out,
at the old ball game.

WALK RIGHT IN

Walk right in, sit right down
Daddy, let your mind roll on
Walk right in, sit right down
Daddy, let your mind roll on
Everybody's talkin' 'bout a new way of walkin'
Do you want to lose your mind?
Walk right in, sit right down
Daddy, let your mind roll on

[We don't usually sing the other verses, but if we did, these are the words.]

Walk right in, sit right down
Baby, let your hair hang down
Walk right in, sit right down
Baby, let your hair hang down
Everybody's talkin' 'bout a new way of walkin'
Do you want to lose your mind?
Walk right in, sit right down
Baby, let your hair hang down

Walk right in, sit right down
Daddy, let your mind roll on
Walk right in, sit right down
Daddy, let your mind roll on
Everybody's talkin' 'bout a new way of walkin'
Do you want to lose your mind?
Walk right in, sit right down
Daddy, let your mind roll on
Daddy, let your mind roll on

 

TOUCH ME

I'm gonna love you
'Til the heavens stop the rain.
I'm gonna love you
'Til the stars fall from the sky
For you and I.

GO, CRABS, GO

Go, Crabs, go!!!
