Pass That Peace Pipe


Pass That Peace Pipe
Gene Kelly and Fred Astaire
Written by Roger Edens, Hugh Martin & Ralph Blane

- as a duet for Gene Kelly and Fred Astaire in the MGM film
Ziegfeld Follies, but it never made it into the picture
It resurfaced a few years later in 1947 in the movie "Good News"
and was nominated for an Oscar as Best Song!

A MEDICINE MAN I MET
SAID DONT GET YOURSELF IN A SWEAT
WHEN THINGS LOOK GRAY,
JUST SHRUG AND SAY:
IT MUSTA BEEN SOMETHIN?I ET!HOCTAWS, CHICKASAWS,
CHATTAHOOCHEES, CHIPPEWAS DO

IF YOURE FEELING MAD AS A WET HEN,
MAD AS YOU CAN POSSIBLY GET, THEN
PASS THAT PEACE PIPE, BURY THAT TOMAHAWK
LIKE THOSE CHICHAMECKS, CHEROKEES,
CHAPULTEPECS DO
THAT COLD SHOULDER NEVER SOLVED A SINGLE COMPLAINT
WHEN YOURE OLDER, YOULL WIPE OFF ALL OF THAT WAR
PAINT

IF YOU FIND YOURSELF IN A FURY,
BE YOUR OWN JUDGE AND YOUR OWN JURY
PASS THAT PEACE PIPE AND BURY THAT HATCHET
LIKE THE CHOCTAWS, CHICKASAWS,
CHATTAHOOCHEES, CHIPPEWAS DO

IF YOU WANT TO HOVER OUT WEST, TOO,
YOU WILL SOON DISCOVER ITS BEST TO
PASS THAT PEACE PIPE AND BURY THAT HATCHET
LIKE THE CHOKTOHS, CHANGOS,
CHATTANOOGAS, CHEEKAROHS DO

EVEN IN COLONIAL DAYS, YOU
KNOW THE CEREMONIAL WAYS TO
PASS THAT PEACE PIPE AND BURY THAT TOMAHAWK
LIKE THOSE CHAKOOTAMEES, CHEPACHEPS
N?CHICOPEES, TOO
PULL YOUR EARS IN, TRY TO USE A LITTLE CONTROL
WHEN ALL CLEARS IN, YOULL BE TOP MAN ON THE TOTEM
POLE

SO, IF YOU WANNA BE AN ALL-RIGHT GUY --
NOT A LONG FACE, BLUES-IN-THE-NIGHT GUY --
WRITE THAT APOLOGY AND DISPATCH IT!
WHEN YOU QUARREL, ITS GRAND TO PATCH IT!
PASS THAT PEACE PIPE AND BURY THAT HATCHET
LIKE THOSE CHOCTAWS, CHICKASAWS,
CHATTAHOOCHEES, CHIPPEWAS
AND THOSE CHICHAMECKS, CHEROKEES,
CHAPULTEPECS
AND THOSE CHAKOOTAMEES, CHEPACHEPS
N?CHICOPEES, CHOKTOHS, CHANGOS,
CHATTANOOGAS, CHEEKAROHS DO-O-O-O!
