Slim: Now listen up!
There are crooks in this here West
Who have claimed to be the best And they think they wrote the book on how to rustle
Well, as good as they may be
Not a one's as good as me
An' I barely have to move a single muscle!
They call me mean, boys!
Depraved and nasty, too
And they ain't seen, boys
The cruelest thing I do!
You see, I…
The sweetest way of rustlin' yet devised!
'Cause when I yodel-adle-eedle-idle-odel-oo
Why, looky how dem cows get hypnotized!
Bill: He don't prod Phil: He don't yell Gill: Still he drives them dogies well, Willie Brothers: Which ain't easy when your chaps are labeled XXXXL!
Slim: Yes, if you're lookin' from a bovine point of view
I sure can yodel-adle-eedle-idle
(spoken) Here we go, boys! Five thousand cattle in the side pocket! Aha!
[Yodels "William Tell Overture", "Yankee Doodle" and "Beethoven's Ode to Joy"]
Yes, I can yodel-adle-eedle-odel! Brothers: ... a sound them cattle truly take to heart! Slim: Yeah, I can yodel-adle-eedle-idle-odel-adle-eedle-idle-odel
An' smack my big ol' rump if that ain't art!
Gill: He don't rope Bill: Not a chance! Phil: He just puts 'em in a trance Brothers: He's a pioneer Pied Piper in ten-gallon underpants!
Slim: Yep! I'm the real rip-roarin' deal to those who moo
Thanks to my yodel-adle-eedle-idle
I got cattle out the ol' wazoo
'Cause I can yodel-adle-eedle-idle-oo!
This song is similar to "Yodel Odel Obey Me". Both are yodeling songs sung by villains to hypnotize their listeners.
