Stuck In The Saddle Again
By Richard Perlmutter

When I go giddy up to my horse Buttercup 

Buttercup won't get up and get going
Old Buttercup will not giddy up
I'm stuck in the saddle again
When I go tally ho she will not tippy toe
Buttercup isn't up to tiptoeing
That so and so will not tally ho
I'm stuck in the saddle now
When I go giddy up to my horse Buttercup 

Buttercup won't get up and get going
Old Buttercup will not giddy up
I'm stuck in the saddle again
When I go tally ho, she will not tippy toe
Buttercup isn't up to tiptoeing
That so and so will not tally ho
I'm stuck in the saddle now

Stuck, stuck, stuck in the saddle
The bugle's blowing but I'm not going 

Stuck, stuck, stuck in the saddle
I'm stuck in the saddle again

Hi-ho, hi-ho, yippy-ki-yo, my horsie won't go
And I'm stuck in the saddle again

Hi-ho, hi-hay, yippy-ki-yay, they went that-a-way
And I'm stuck in the saddle again
Forward, forward ho forward, forward ho,
What can I do I'm an old buckaroo
Just a son of a gun with a horse that won't run
And I'm stuck in the saddle again
Yes I really am stuck in the saddle again,
And it's hot up here
Wearing these britches, this saddle sure itches, it never unhitches,
I'm stuck in the saddle again
