That famous day in history, the men of the 7th Cavalry went riding on
And from the rear, a voice was heard
A brave young man with a trembling word rang loud and clear…

What am I doin’ here??

Please, Mr. Custer, I don’t wanna go
Hey, Mr. Custer, please don’t make me go
I had a dream last night about the comin’ fight
Somebody yelled, "Attack!”
And there I stood with a arrow in my back.

Please Mr. Custer, I don’t wanna go (forward Ho!!) — aaww

Look at them bushes out there
They’re moving and there’s a injun behind every one
Hey, Mr. Custer, you mind if I be excused the rest of the afternoon?
HEY CHARLIE, DUCK YER HEAD!!
Hmm, you’re a little bit late on that one, Charlie
Hooh, I bet that smarts!

(They were sure of victory, the men of the 7th Cavalry, as they rode on)
(But then from the rear, a voice was heard)
(That same brave voice with the trembling word rang loud and clear)
What am I doin’ here??

Please Mr. Custer, I don’t wanna go
Listen, Mr. Custer, please don’t make me go
There’s a redskin a’waitin’ out there, just fixin’ to take my hair
A coward I’m bein’ called, ‘cause I don’t wanna wind up dead or bald

Please Mr. Custer, I don’t wanna go (forward HO)–aaww

SPOKEN: I wonder what the injun word for friend is
Let’s see- friend– kemo sabe, that’s it
KEMO SABE!, HEY OUT THERE-KEMO SABE!
Nope, that itn’t it
Look at them durned injuns
They’re runnin’ around like a bunch of wild Indians-heh, heh, heh
Nah, this ain’t no time for jokin’
