Buffalo gals, won't you come out tonight?
Come out tonight, won't you come out tonight?
Buffalo gals, won't you come out tonight,
Dance by the light of the moon.

Dance all night, my heels got to rocking,
My heels got to rocking, my heels got to rocking.
Danced with a girl had a hole in her stocking,
Prettiest girl . . .
