kansas city lyrics – bill haley & his comets

got a letter just this mornin’
it was postmarked omaha
it was typed and neatly written
offerin’ me this better job
better job at higher wages
expenses paid and a car
but i’m on tv here locally
and i can’t quit, i’m a star
i come on tv a grinnin’
wearin’ pistols and a hat
it’s a kiddie show
and i’m a hero of the younger set
i’m the number one attraction
in every super market parking lot
i’m the king of kansas city
no thanks, omaha, thanks a lot
kansas city star, that’s what i are
you oughta see my car
drive a big old cadillac with wired wheels
got rhinestones on the spokes
i got credit down at the grocery store
and my barber tells me jokes
i’m the number one attraction
in every super market parking lot
i’m the king of kansas city
no thanks, omaha, thanks a lot
kansas city star, that’s what i are
you oughta see my car
drive a big old cadillac with wired wheels
got rhinestones on the spokes
i got credit down at the grocery store
and my barber tells me jokes
i’m the number one attraction
in every super market parking lot
i’m the king of kansas city
no thanks, omaha, thanks a lot
stay tuned, we’re gonna have
a popeye cartoon in just a minute
