Lyrics

Big big news, the kind I like
Wildcatter made an oil strike
I'm heading for the field to find out more
Gonna take me out a lease on that reservoir
There's black gold gushing from the number one rig
You don't wanna miss this it's gonna be big

Boom town boom town
We're gonna build a boom town baby
Boom town boom town
We're gonna build a boom town baby
There's a fortune to be found
Pumping money from the ground
In our boom town boom town
We're gonna build a boom town

Jobs jobs jobs for tough young men
Hauling pipe and lumber in
Putting up derricks, breaking down soil
Driving down drill bits, pumping up oil
Come pitch your tent and earn your pay
Roustabouts are starting out at six bucks a day in our

Boom town boom town
We're gonna build a boom town baby
Boom town boom town
We're gonna build a boom town baby
There's a fortune to be found
Pumping money from the ground
In our boom town boom town
We're gonna build a boom town

Derricks bloom like daisies; Popping up all over
Tanks are overflowing; Spilling down the river
Oil fills every plate cup and pitcher
Everybody's busy; Everybody's richer
Bang bang bang our boom town grows
Now we've got two picture shows
Twelve rooming houses, five pool halls
Restaurants built with wood plank walls
The future of our city burns bright and clear
A man'll be proud to raise a family here in our

Boom town boom town
We're gonna build a boom town baby
Boom town boom town
We're gonna build a boom town baby
There's a fortune to be found
Pumping money from the ground
In our boom town boom town
We're gonna build a boom town

Tonkawa, Garber, Glenpool, and Tulsa, these are boom towns baby
Bartlesville, Healdton, Drumright, and Oilton, these are boom towns baby
Shamrock, Cromwell, Oklahoma City, Burbank, Cushing, Seminole, Wewoka
These are boom towns baby; These are Oklahoma boom towns
Oklahoma boom towns, baby; Yeah we're gonna build a boom town
Gonna build a boom town baby; We're gonna build a boom town
Oklahoma boom town, baby; Gonna build a boom town
