Lonesome Polecat lyrics

CALEB: I'm a lonesome polecat
lonesome, sad and blue
'cause i ain't got no femine polecat
vowin' to be true
oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh
cain't make no vows
to a herd o' cows,
oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh

FRANK AND GIDEON:
I'm a mean old hounddog
bayin' at the moon
'cause i ain't got no lady friend hounddog
here to hear my tune
oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh

FRANK, GIDEON AND BENJAMIN:
A man cain't sleep
when he sleeps with sheep
oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh

ALL BROTHERS:
I'm a li'l old hoot owl
hootin' in the trees
'cause i ain't got no little gal owl fowl
here to shoot the breeze
oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh
cain't shoot no breeze
with a bunch o' trees
oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh

Choreographer Michael Kidd cast four professional dancers, a gymnast and even a baseball player as Adam Pontipee's six rough and tumble brothers. Jeff Richards, who played Benjamin, was a former professional baseball player who topped out at the AAA level of the minor leagues. All four actors - Matt Mattox, Marc Platt, Jacques d'Amboise, and Tommy Rall - were professional dancers - with d'Amboise (Ephraim) appearing on loan from the New York City Ballet. All four balanced on a beam together during their famous barn-raising dance. Russ Tamblyn beat Morton Downey Jr. for the role of youngest brother Gideon. Tamblyn showcased his gymnastics training throughout the action sequences. Professional dancers played all seven of the brides. Julie Newmar, a classically trained ballerina, would later rise to fame as Catwoman in the 1960s TV version of Batman. She also won a Supporting Actress Tony Award for The Marriage-Go-Round (starring Claudette Colbert). She appeared on her neighbor James Belushi's sitcom According to Jim after the two settled a highly publicized lawsuit. Ruth: Ruta Lee enjoyed a long stage and television career, working with Lucille Ball, Sammy Davis, Jr., Elizabeth Taylor, Natalie Wood, and Frank Sinatra. Lee appeared in the sitcom Roseanne as the first girlfriend of Roseanne's mother. Her singing parts were dubbed in post-production by Betty Noyes. Norma Doggett performed in the 1940s-50s Broadway shows Bells Are Ringing, Fanny, Wish You Were Here, Miss Liberty, and Magdalena. Virginia Gibson was nominated for a Tony Award in 1957 and performed regularly on the Johnny Carson show. Betty Carr was also a Broadway veteran, dancing in Damn Yankees, Happy Hunting, Mask and Gown, and Fanny (alongside Norma Doggett). She died in October 2008 (the first of the seven brides to pass away). Nancy Kilgas made her film debut in Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. She danced in the film versions of Oklahoma!, Shake, Rattle & Rock!, and Alfred Hitchcock's Torn Curtain.
