The Ballad of Cat Ballou [song lyrics]

Song lyrics to The Ballad of Cat Ballou, Written by Mack David and Jerry Livingston. Performed by Stubby Kaye & Nat ‘King’ Cole in Cat Ballou.

Well now friends just lend an ear
For you’re now about to hear
The ballad of Cat Ballou-ou
It’s a song that’s newly made
And Professor Sam the Shade
And the Sunrise Kid are singin’ it for you
Cat Ballou
Cat Ballou

It’s a hangin’ day in Wolf City, Wyomin’
Wolf City, Wyomin’, eighteen-ninety-four
They’re gonna drop Cat Ballou-ou
Through the gallows floor

She killed a man in Wolf City, Wyomin’
Wolf City, Wyomin’, killed a man it’s true
And that is why they’re a-hangin’
Hangin’ Cat Ballou

She has the smile of an angel (fights like the Devil)
The eyes of an angel (bites like the Devil)
The face of an angel (I say she’s the Devil)
She’s mean and evil through and through
Cat Ballou
Cat Ballou-ou-ou
She’s mean and evil through and through

Song lyrics to The Ballad of Cat Ballou, Written by Mack David and Jerry Livingston. Performed by Stubby Kaye & Nat 'King' Cole in Cat Ballou.

With her outlaw band, they’re now tellin’ a story
Now tellin’ a story, how she rode the plain
The wildest gal in the West
Since Calamity Jane

And today’s the day, that she’s goin’ to glory
She’s goin’ to glory, for the way she sinned
They’ll be a-speedin’ her soul
On the wayward wind

She has the smile of an angel (fights like the Devil)
The eyes of an angel (bites like the Devil)
The face of an angel (I say she’s the Devil)
She’s mean and evil through and through
Cat Ballou (Cat Ballou)
Cat Ballou-ou-ou (Cat Ballou-ou-ou)
She’s mean and evil through and through
Cat Ballou
Cat Ball-ou-ou-ou
She’s mean and evil through and through
