Because this has been rattling around in my head for weeks, it's time to let it loose on the unsuspecting.



Buffalo Goths
(tune: Buffalo Gals aka, New York Gals, etc, possibly by John Hodges, 1844)

Chorus (usually between verses):
Buffalo Goth, won't you come out tonight,
Come out tonight, come out tonight.
Buffalo Goth, won't you come out tonight
And dance by the light of the moon.


As I was walking down the street,
Down the street, down the street,
All dressed in black I chanced to meet,
A girl with dark blue hair.

I stopped her and we had some talk,
Had some talk, had some talk,
But her skirt covered up the whole sidewalk
And left no room for me.

I asked her if she'd have a dance,
Have a dance, have a dance,
I thought that I might have a chance
To shake a foot with her.

I danced with a boi with a hole in his stockin',
And his heel kept a-knockin', and his toes kept a-rockin'
I danced with a boi with a hole in his stockin'
And we danced by the light of the moon.

I danced all night with a bottle in my hand
A bottle in my hand, a bottle in my hand
I danced all night with a bottle in my hand
And oozed to the promised land

The pretty boys, we're comin' out tonight,
We're comin' out tonight, we're comin' out tonight,
O yes, pretty boys, we're all out tonight,
To dance by the light of the moon.
