"Gonna build me a castle of Orange and White,
Gonna throw me a party every night!
With diamonds inlaid all over the floor, and French High all over the door!
Gonna marry me a guy from French High School, a football playing sort-of -a guy.
Gonna entertain royalty every night, in my castle painted Orange and White!!

Before there were the Belles, they were called the MAIDS!
Looking in the year book, the earliest I saw the "Maids" were in 1938.
And what year did they become the "Belles"?
Was 1952 the first year of the Belles?

[ I'm sorry this picture isn't better, but was scanned off a newspaper ]
It says: 12 of the 21 Buffalo Belles are pictures in their NEW UNIFORMS!

Buffalo Belles 1956

1961 - '62 Belles ...thank you Jerry Henderson for the pictures

We are the Belles. We wear our hair in tails. We wear our dungarees, way up to our knees. We wear our fathers t-shirts. We wear our brothers ties. And when we kiss the boys, we really hypnotize, Ta-ra-ra-boom-te-a! Have you had yours today? I had mine yesterday, Ta-ra-ra-boom-te-a. We step high in our boots. We're proud of our own suits. And when the long fringe flies, it really hits the eyes!! Ta-ra-ra-boom-te-a. We did our drill today.
We learned it yesterday, Ta-ra-ra-boom-te-a!

A few of the Belles from the '60's ( maybe '64 *lol* )

1965 Buffalo Belles

Raise your voices, raise them high.
Sing to the Belles and here's why.
Look to the Belles and you'll find.
We have the greatest teamwork,
working with our band.
And we are the Buffalo Belles,
the best team in the land.
We are up and coming, progressive, kind and strong.
And to our own Belles, we proudly sing this song!!
