I've been watering my horse since way before noon
Well, I hope that beast gets satisfied soon

I'm a mean old hombre from a border town
Woke up the sheriff and gunned him down

Dance critters when I say dance
Dance critters, dance critters

I've been eating sand and cactus pie
Why, I'm telling you a feller gets mighty dry

My six guns loaded and pointed down
Best keep your feet up off the ground

Dance critters when I say dance
Dance critters, dance critters

It was a town full of violent men and bad women
Nobody had a hard of gold
Justice was unheard of and mercy was rarer still
In the corner of the barroom some musicians played rowdy dancehall jive
The piano was shaped like a coffin
The banjo was made from two pie-tins and bailing wire
I said "Hey, I've got one like that at home"
Even with all that noise I could hear her spurs jangling down the street
Like altar bells they sounded and I struck my breast three times
She'd been gone a while since I don't remember when
"I spent a year in echo canyon" she said, "Just me and my tambourine"
The music stopped...
...And then it started again
And that's where a dance-hall storm began

Dance critters when I say dance
Dance critters, dance critters

Me and old AndrŠ¹, the Indian guide
We got three stuffed kittens and a buffalo hide

Head 'um up, move 'um out
When I say dance, you're gonna shout
"Dance, dance, dance, dance"

Dance critters when I say dance
Dance critters, dance critters
