Across the alley from the Alamo, Lived a pinto pony and a Navajo,
Who sang a sort of Indian "Hi-de-ho" to the people passin' by.
The pinto spent his time a-swishin' flies, And the Navajo watched the lazy skies,
And very rarely did they ever rest their eyes on the people passin' by.
One day, they went a-walkin' along the railroad track,
They were swishin' not a-lookin', Toot! Toot! They never came back.
Across the alley from the Alamo, When the summer sun decides to settle low,
A fly sings an Indian "Hi-de-ho" to the people passin' by.
