DigiTrad: ALTEH BUCK

ALTEH BUCK

I'm an alteh buck I'm an old buck
Foon old Kentuck From old Kentuck
Uhn ich triypst tsu town And I drive to town
Lookin' like a schmuck (schmuck is vulgar for stupid jerk

literally, "penis")

Oy, ich triypst arum Oh, I traipse around
Ahf a fehrdteleh On a little horse
Ich hob der ganseh veldt I regard the whole world
In d'rehrdtelleh [as belonging] in hell
(if not in "hell", at least dead &
buried - "in the earth")
Yippee ay oh kiyay
Oy, Yippee ay oh kiyay [The word for horse, "fehrdt" and
the word for hell, "d'rehrdt" (the
earth), are both in the grammatical
form, "affectionate-diminutive"]

tune: I'm an Old Cowhand
From Ray Sinick, riding instructor at the Fallsview Lodge
and Evergreen Manor (bygone), Ellenville, NY
