Whoop-Ti-Ay! (Shivaree)

This song is by Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe and appears on the movie soundtrack Paint Your Wagon (1969).

Original video
Mister Rumson went to town
Riding on a pony
Bought a wife and brought her home
And called it matrimony

Mister Rumson bought a bride
Out in Californee
He'd of saved alot of money
Staying drunk and horny

Oh, Susanna, he's happy as can be
For he's got him something better than a banjo on his knee!

Rumson, he got married today
Married today, married today
Rumson, he got married today
What'll he do tomorrow?

Get the soap man water, whoop-ti-ay!
Get the soap man water, whoop-ti-ay!
Got a sweet perfumer to dry his humor
It's Ben's wedding day

Wash him down and flip him, whoop-ti-ay!
Wash him down and flip him, whoop-ti-ay!
He's got a blue-eyed wonder to pull him under
It's Ben's wedding, his wedding, his wedding day
Amen!
