(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 want to 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 want to go (forward ho!) aw
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!
Hm, you're a little bit late on that one, charlie
Ooh, 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 want to 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've been called 'cause I don't want to wind up dead or bald

Please Mr. Custer, I don't want to go (forward ho) aw
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'
