Big Chief De Sota

Big Chief De Sota

(Andy Razaf / Fernando Arbelo)

Ray Noble and His Orchestra

Sterling Bose:
Chief De Sota in Dakota
Not De Cotem
Not in this quota did the legendary Sota
Buy a planetary coda
Oh Chief De Soda
He bought a boat-a
Though he had no place to go
Chief De Sota bought a boat-a

Big Chief De Sota
Couldn't float and was his face red

Big Chief De Sota
Was so mad he scalped his own head

Sterling Bose:
Oh the pity at it, so disorder
Got to go-da
Big Chief De Sota
Thought he went and bought a boat-a
But people only know that any coat-a???
Chief De Sota
Get to know da
Saturday morning in Dakota at a border kind-a float-a in Dakota

Easy Chief, easy
Well that's better
Now you're swinging lightly
That's it Chief
