I've always thought Dinah Shore was the original singer of this song, until I saw this musical "Annie Get Your Gun".

According to Wikipedia, the origin of this song is this excellent 1946 (some say 1950) musical "Annie Get Your Gun". In the song Annie Oakley (played by Betty Hutton), her brother (Little Jake), sisters (Minnie, Jessie, and Nellie), and the owner of the Wilson Hotel (Foster Wilson) sing jokingly about how the Oakley family and their community live happy lives despite their lack of education and, often, money.

Lyrics:

Folks are dumb where I come from,

They ain't had any learning.

Still they're happy as can be

Doin' what comes naturally (doin' what comes naturally).

Folks like us could never fuss

With schools and books and learning.

Still we've gone from A to Z,

Doin' what comes naturally (doin' what comes naturally)

You don't have to know how to read or write

When you're out with a feller in the pale moonlight.

You don't have to look in a book to find out

What he thinks of the moon and what is on his mind.

That comes naturally (that comes naturally).

My uncle don't pay taxes his address never gives

They can't collect his taxes for they don't know where he lives

Cousin Ben got angry when they caught him stealing chickens

'I'm within my rights,' said he doing what comes naturally


Uncle Jack has never read an almanac on drinking

Still he's always on the spree

Doin' what comes naturally (doin' what comes naturally).

Sister Sal who's musical has never had a lesson,

Still she's learned to sing off-key

Doin' what comes naturally (doin' what comes naturally).

You don't have to go a private school

Not to turn up your bustle to a stubborn mule

You don't have to come from a great big town

Not to clean out a stable in a evening gown

That comes naturally (that comes naturally).

My uncle out in Texas can’t even write his name

He signs his checks with “x’s”

But they cash him just the same

Grandpa Dick was always sick but never saw a doctor

He just died at 93

Doing what comes naturally

Doing what comes naturally
