When it's cold outside I'd like to sleep with a blanket on my ass
I don't want to hear the wind blow, I don't want my face to chap
But way up there in the Northwest are some guys who got no choice
They got to ride through blizzards when there's trouble in the forest
And you can hear 'em singin' it

(Let's lift our hearts up, let's let our hair down)
Rangers at midnight cleanin' out all o' the town, yeah, yeah, yeah
Rangers at midnight cleanin' out the town, oo-oo-hoo, yeah
Rangers at midnight, oh

If a big brown bear should run away, they got to find him and cut him down
If a man in a velvet suit is seen, they got to run him outta town
When the FBI's in trouble up north, well they know just who to call
A mounted guy at four foot five still looks mighty tall
And you can hear 'em singin' it

(Let's lift our hearts up, let's let our hair down)
Rangers at midnight cleanin' out all o' the town, yeah, yeah, yeah
Rangers at midnight cleanin' out the town, oo-hoo-hoo, yeah, alright
Rangers at midnight, oh-ho, yeah

Well we're the best darn guys that ever rode the North
I like to ride in the snow with my rifle and my horse
Well I'm a Mountie now and I'm only twenty-one
But I'm the king of the North and I'm really havin' fun

"Scene II "Night Patrol"

The cold Northwestern wind blows ice against my cheek
While riding night patrol, I think of you
You left me for the last time, you've shut yourself from me
And now I've made it so I can't get back to you
I'm a mounted man for life

So don't you try to write or call me on the phone
I've finally found a place where I can hide from you
I'm a mounted man for life
I'm a mounted man for life

Scene III "Let's Lift Our Hearts Up" (Finale)

(Let's lift our hearts up, let's let our hair down)
(Let's lift our hearts up, let's let our hair down)
(Let's lift our hearts up, let's let our hair down)
(Let's lift our hearts up, let's let our hair down)
(Let's lift our hearts up, let's let our hair down)

Rangers at midnight cleanin' out all o' the town, yeah, yeah, yeah
Rangers at midnight cleanin' out the town, oh yeah
Rangers at midnight and they're alright
