For a bold bad man was this desperado
From Badman's Gulch way down in Colorado
And he rode around like a big tornado
And ev'rywhere he went he gave his BIG whoop - Hey!

He was a desperado from the wild and woolly west
But ev'ry now and then he'd go and give the West a rest
He'd saddle up his horse, put on his spurs and leather vest
And ev'rywhere he went he gave his BIG whoop - Hey!

He had a skunk named Arnie but he thought he was a hat
He'd put him up on top his head and wear him just like that
And everywhere they'd go the people'd point and say what's that
And Arnie'd wag his tail and give his BIG whoop - Hey!

For a bold bad man was this desperado
From Badman's Gulch way down in Colorado
And he rode around like a big tornado
And ev'rywhere he went he gave his BIG whoop - Hey!

He was a desperado from the wild and woolly west
But ev'ry now and then he'd go and give the West a rest
He'd saddle up his horse, put on his spurs and leather vest
And ev'rywhere he went he gave his BIG whoop - Hey!

He had a horse named Lightnin' but she wasn't very quick
She never liked to run but she could snort and buck and kick
And when our Desperado saddled up and gave a kick
She'd throw him so you'd really hear his BIG whoop - Hey!

For a bold bad man was this desperado
From Badman's Gulch way down in Colorado
And he rode around like a big tornado
And ev'rywhere he went he gave his BIG whoop - Hey!

He was a desperado from the wild and woolly west
But ev'ry now and then he'd go and give the West a rest
He'd saddle up his horse, put on his spurs and leather vest
And ev'rywhere he went he gave his BIG whoop - Hey!
