Listen to song:

This song first appeared in the 1947 Jane Russell and Bob Hope film, Paleface

East is east and west is westBob Hope Paleface
And the wrong one I have chose
Let’s go where you’ll keep on wearin’
Those frills and flowers and buttons and bows
Rings and things and buttons and bows

Don’t bury me on the lone prairie
Take me where the cement grows
Let’s move down to some big town
Where they love a gal by the cut o’ her clothes
And you’ll stand out
In buttons and bows

I’ll love you in buckskin
Or skirts that you’ve homespun
But I’ll love ya’ longer, stronger where
Yer friends don’t tote a gun

My bones denounce the buckboard bounce
And the cactus hurts my toes
Let’s vamoose where gals keep usin’
Those silks and satins and linen that shows
And you’re all mine in buttons and bows

Gimme eastern trimmin’ where women are women
In high silk hose and peek-a-boo clothes
And French perfume that rocks the room
And you’re all mine in buttons and bows
