The Water Buffalo Song is the first Silly Songs with Larry from Where's God When I'm S-Scared? and is sung by Larry the Cucumber.
Narrator: And now it's time for Silly Songs with Larry, the part of the show where Larry comes out and sings a silly song. So without further ado, Silly Songs with Larry.
Larry: The Water Buffalo Song.
Everybody's got a water buffalo, yours is fast but mine is slow.
Oh, where do we get them? I don't know, but everybody's got a water buffalo-oooooh!
I took my buffalo to the store, got his head stuck in the door.
Spilled some lima beans on the floor. Oh, everybody's got a...
Archibald: Stop it, stop, stop right this instant! What do you think you're doing? You can't say everyone's got a water buffalo when everyone does not have a water buffalo! We're going to get nasty letters saying, "Where's my water buffalo? Why don't I have a water buffalo?" And are you prepared to deal with that? I don't think so! Just stop being so silly!
Narrator: This has been Silly Songs with Larry. Tune in next time to hear Larry sing...

- This is the first Silly Song that Larry sings, as well as the very first Silly Song in the series.
- Some people found Larry creepy because of his voice with a cowboy hat.
- The long note in the song was inspired by the long note in "The Three Amigos", theme song.
- This is the only silly song written by Phil Vischer. Everyone after this one is written by Mike Nawrocki, with the exception of "High Silk Hat" which was written by one of Big Idea's animators, Marc Vulcano. This also the only silly song where Big Idea's music composer, Kurt Heinike, did no music for this one.
- Originally there wasn't any plan to have a silly song in every video but rather to have silly random things in between shows. Which is why show #2 had "The Forgive-O-Matic". When that came out fans wrote to Big Idea about why the silly song went away. After that, the silly song became a regular thing.
- The only silly song with Larry's original low and dopey voice.
- This Silly Song was used in Chuck E. Cheese's as part of the January 2001 Show which played from January through March of 2001.
