A Gal In Calico Johnny Mercer (#5 in 1946), Tex Beneke (#6 in 1947), Bing Crosby (#8 in 1947),
Benny Goodman (#6 in 1947), Manhattan Transfer

Met a gal in calico, down in Santa Fe
Used to be her Sunday beau ‘til I rode away
Do I want her, do I want her love - yes, siree
Will I win her? Will I win her love - wait and see
Workin’ with the rodeo, rode from town to town
Seen most every kinda gal, every kind of gown
But who makes my heart sing, Yipee yi, yipee yo -
My little gal in calico
I’ll take my gal in calico down in Santa Fe
Guess I better let her know that I feel this way
Is she waitin’ (is she waitin’), Aw, she’d better be
Am I hopin’ to be ropin’ her, Yes siree
Gonna quit the rodeo, gonna settle down
Buy a bolt of calico, For a wedding gown
And will I fence her in, Yip yipee yi, yip yipee yo ---
My little gal in calico
Little gal in calico
My little gal in calico
Yipee yi, yipee yo -------
