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 DON'T 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 YOU'RE 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 YOU'RE OLDER, YOU'LL 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 IT'S 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 CLEAR”'S IN, YOU'LL 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, IT'S 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!
