In the notes at the end of the lyrics to THE GAY CABALLERO, the writer of the notes says he has met only one other person in the last 67 years who even recognized this song. Better make it two. I have an original of the sheet music, dated MCMXXIX (1929). The composers' names, Frank Crumit and Lou Klein are shown on the front along with the words "Sung With Sensational Success by the Peerless DUNCAN SISTERS". The publisher was F.B. Haviland.

I also have the 78 of the song, from about 1929, as sung by Frank Crumit. Please put me in touch with the person who wrote the notes at the end of your lyrics. I am not a dealer,just someone who is interested in "old time" music.

We sing this at family gatherings but it's my 80 year old mother who knows all the words, all I can remember is the following: Does it have lines in it something like this?

I am a gay Cabelero
Retuning from Rio Janero
Minus some hair
A bruise here and there
For here husband
He chewed off my ear-o

Oh she was a dancer and singer
At me she kept pointing her finger
She said senor, "Si,
Si, senor, si si"
But I couldn't see an dam thinger

I have some Frank Crumit on 78 RPM, but unfortunately I do not have this one, but I will try to pick my mothers brains for the rest of the lyrics if you want them.

This version is from "The Dirty Song Book" compiled by Jerry Silverman

THE GAY CABALLERO

I am a gay caballero
I come from Rio de Janiero
I carry with me my weetrembeli
And both of my latrabaleros.

I met a gay young senorita
Who gave me a dose of clapita
Right on the end of my weetrembeli
And both of my latrabaleros

I wnet to a wise surgeano
He said, "I prescribe purgeano,"
He cut off the end of my weetrembeli
And both of my latrabaleros

And now I'm a sad caballero
Returning to Rio de Janiero
But not as you see with my weetrembeli
And both of my latrabaleros

At night as I lie on my pillow
Seeking to finger my willow
All I find there is a handful of hair
And one dried up latrabalero.

Ed Cray in "The Erotic Muse" has a couple more versions of the song. One version is WWI military vintage published in a book called "More Tommy's Tunes" in 1919. The second version Cray includes was dated 1927 and Cray also cites Randolph collection version that the informant said she learned in 1912. Cray concludes that "the song, under one or another title, was known on various college campuses well before Ohio State University student Frank Crumit edited and the recorded it." The edited and adapted version of the song was copyrighted by Lou Klein and Frank Crumit and released as RCA Victor V-21735 in 1929. The record sold nerarly 2 million copies.

Here is text "A" from the book by Ed Cray

Oh I am a gay caballero,
Going from Rio de Janeiro
With an exceedingly long latraballee
And two fine latraballeros.

I went down to Tijuana
Exceedingly fine Tijuana
With my exceedingly long latraballee
And my two fine latraballeros.

I met a gay senorita,
Exceedingly gay senorita
She wanted to play with my latraballee,
And with one of my latraballeros.

Oh, now I've got the clapito
Exceedingly painful clapito
Right on the end of my latraballee,
And on one of my latraballeros.

I went to see a medico
Exceedingly fine medico.
He looked at the end of my latraballee
And at one of my latraballeros.

He took out a long stiletto,
Exceedingly long stiletto.
He cut off the end of my latraballee
And one of my latraballeros

And now I'm a sad caballero
Returning to Rio de Janiero,
Minus the end of my latrballee
And one of my latraballeros.

At night I lay on my pillow
Seeking to finger my willow.

Copmparing the Silverman text with text "A" from Cray, you can easily see the logical error in the Silverman text. That Silverman text describes the surgical excision of both "latraballeros", however at the end he seems to have a dried up one remaining. Bad math or weird biology?

Here is the Cray "B" text with is rather different and less surgical although it refers to the woman using a masculine looking word "senorio". I guess rhyme trumps gender.

There once was a gay Don d'Ilio
Who lived in a high white castilio
And he played with his trototoilio
And the works of his raggle de bam, bam! bam!

One day to that high white castilio
There came a gay young senorio [sic]
And she played with trototoilio
And the works of his raggle de bam, bam! bam!

Next day that gay Don d'Ilio
Laid her down on a soft sofailio
And he eased in his trototoilio
And the works of his raggle de bam, bam! bam!

Nine days later that gay Don d'Ilio
Gnashed his teeth with rage at the senorio
And gazed with sorrow on this trototoilio
And the works of his raggle de bam, bam! bam!

He wnet to se Dr. Gonzalio
Who told him he had the clapilio
And he gave him a bottle of castorio
For the works of his raggle de bam, bam! bam!

Thanks to all for your comments. Yes, Stewie, I was just commenting on the notes at the end of the lyrics, and trying to reach the person who wrote the notes. But, that's redundant now after seeing all the replies. To Metchosin: I played the song(there were 4 verses only) at the site you mentioned. Thanks for the tip. I lived in James Bay and Saanich for 10 yrs. Bought our Corgi on Happy Valley Rd. To rich r: Great info on the song's background. I'm holding one of those 2 million copies of the 78 in my hand.

With the popularity of the recently released movie, Brokeback Mountain, about two gay cowboys, this song--or versions of it-- might well once again be heard at coffee houses and kitchen parties outside the gay community.
I remember hearing this on the radio long ago, and once had a 1960's era songbook with the lyrics in it.

The magnificent Scots Traveller singer Stanley Robertson recently sang a Scots dialect version of this at the Royal Oak folk club in Lewes. Every line had to rhyme with 'wee stumpie'.

I've also heard a rugby-style (Bonfire) version in which the Gay Caballero calls his wedding tackle 'Miralto Maree'. I would imagine this is a distortion of the Spanish for 'my old friend'. It has a chorus to the tune of 'Cielito Lindo' and goes,

Ay ay ay ay,
Si, si, Senora,
Belinda, Belinda, she p****d from the window
All over my new sombrero.

An old friend, who once played center for University of California's football team on their last Rose Bowl trip(1959, I think), shared this with me after his freshman year of college in 1958. It was a favority at his fraternity house, as I suppose various versions were at other campuses across the land. Unless I miss my guess, P.C. has caused many of these ditties to either go undergound or disappear entirely.

Another from the same source, to the tune of "High Above Cayuga's Waters," the Cornell Alma Mater:

High above a Pi Phi's garter,
High above her knees,
Lies a Pi Phi's only virtue,
Her vir-gin-i-ty.

It was only rude and insensitive then. You'd likely go to the slammer for singing it in public today.

Transcribed from the video at YouTube—See Mr. Happy's link above. This has 2 verses that are not in the version in the DT, as well as several small differences in other verses.

THE GAY CABALLERO
As sung by Frank Crumit

I am a gay caballero,
Coming from Rio Janiero.
With nice oily hair,
And full of hot air,
I'm an expert at shooting the bull-o.

I'm seeking a fair senorita,
Not thin and yet not too much meat-a.
I'll woo her awhile
In my Argentine style.
I'll carry her off of her feet-a.

I'll tell her I'm of the nobilio,
And live in a great big castillio.
I must have a miss
Who will long for a kiss
And not say, "Oh, don't be so silly-o!"

It was at a swell cabaretta
While wining and dining I met her.
We drank one or two,
As other folks do.
The night was wet but she got wetter.

She told me her name was Estrella.
She said, "Stick around me, young fella.
Mosquitoes they bite
And they're awful tonight,
And you smell just like citronella."

I can't forget that senora.
While telling her how I adore her,
Asleep she did fall.
Didn't mind that at all,
But she was a terrible snorer.

She was a dancer and singer.
At me she kept pointing her finger
And saying to me
"Si, si" or "Thee, thee(?),"
But I couldn't see a durn thing-a.

She told me that she was so lonely,
So I climbed upon her balcony.
While under her spell,
I heard someone yell,
"Get away from here, you big baloney."

I swore I'd win this senorita.
I wooed her upon the sofita,
Then her husband walked in.
What he did was a sin.
I can still hear the birds sing "Tweet tweet-a."

Now I am a sad caballero
Returning to Rio Janiero.
Minus my hair,
A bruise here and there,
But her husband he chewed off my ear-o.


[I think some of the Spanish-sounding words in this song are either made up or distorted: nobilio, castillio, cabaretta, sofita. The actual Spanish word for castle is castillo, but castillio is how he pronounces it.]

4.        We lay on a comfy sofita,

5.        I got a bad dose of Poxito,

6.        I went to a cunning physico,

And both of my Bombom-bodero.

Then I went to a gay fiesta,
And I met a lovely Senorita.
She wanted to see my Bombom-bodee
And both of my Bombom-bodero.

So I took her to my hacienda
And I laid her on my soft sofalita,
I gave her five shots of my Bombom-bodee
And both of my Bombom-bodero.

But this lovely senorita
Had a very 'rosita',
It rotten the tip of my Bombom-bodee
And one of my Bombom-bodero.

So I went to a medico.
O, he took out a sharp scalpalito!
He cut off the tip of my Bombom-bodee

This version was taught to me by a friend years ago. Sung to the same tune as "Gay Caballero" but with different adapted dirty song lyrics. When referring to it, we have always called it "The Ballad of Pepito Consejero"... Enjoy!

My name is Pepito Consejero,
I hail from Rio de Janero
And all that I have is my bombom ba dee
And two of my bombom baderos

One day I met a fine senorita,
She was a very very fine senorita,
She wanted to play with my bombom ba dee
And one of my bombom baderos

I caught a rare disease called clapita,
It was a very rare disease called clapita,
It affected the tip of my bombom ba dee
And one of my bombom baderos

I went in the search of America,
I needed a very good la medica,
They had to cut off my bombom ba dee
and one of my bombom baderos

At night as I lay on my pillow,
I reach down to play with my willow,
But all that is there is a big clump of hair
And one of my bombom baderos...

Yet another version, learnt c. 1965 with Crawley RFC:

There once was a gay caballero
An exceedingly gay caballero
Who christened his prick Maria Marie -
Maria Marea Marino.

He went to a low-down casino
An exceedingly low-down casino
And with him he took Maria Marie
Maria Marea Marino.

He there met a fair senorino
An exceedingly fair senorino
And to her he showed Maria Marie
Maria Marea Marino.

He showed him her dark crevacino
An exceedingly dark crevacino
And in it he put Maria Marie
Maria Marea Marino.

He there caught the dreaded poxino
The exceedingly dreaded poxino
That withered the tip of Maria Marie
Maria Marea Marino.

He went to an old medecino
An exceedingly old medecino
Who cut of the tip of Maria Marie
Maria Marea Marino.

There now sits an old caballero
An exceedingly old caballero
Who sits on his rump, nursing the stump of
Maria Marea Marino.

The tune we rugby players used for this was the verse tune of "Sing Us Another One" (for limericks).
