Kansas City
Wilbert Harrison Lyrics


I'm going to Kansas City, Kansas City here I come
I'm going to Kansas City, Kansas City here I come
They got some crazy lil' women there
And I'm gonna get me one

I'm gonna be standing on the corner
Of Twelfth Street and Vine
I'm gonna be standing on the corner
Of Twelfth Street and Vine
With my Kansas City baby
And a bottle of Kansas City wine

Well I might take a train
I might take a plane, but if I have to walk
I'm going just the same
I'm going to Kansas City, Kansas City here I come
They got some crazy lil' women there
And I'm gonna get me one

Oh but you know, yeah

Now if I stay with that woman, I know I'm gonna die
Gotta find a brand new baby
That's the reason why
I'm going to Kansas City, Kansas City here I come

They got some crazy lil' women there and I'm gonna get me one
They got crazy lil' women there and I'm gonna get me one
They got some crazy lil' women there and I'm gonna get me one

It was summer of 1959 I was 16 and getting ready for my Junior year of high school. Oh my what a wonderful time!😄 Not a care in the world. Makes my 76 year-old heart smile with these beautiful memories!😁

My aunt graduated in 1958. I am sure her old radio played this song many times back in the day.

@Barbara Adams I remember when only the 'fi' was 'hi'. Today you probably listen to this on a wi-fi connection!

@OldDogNewTrick No, I win the “old Fart” award! 83 May 2020! I wore out this record on my hi-fi.

A musician who I greatly respect says that this is the best rock 'n' roll song ever recorded. I think he's right!

Derek Myers

Do you have a mind of your own or nah?

Can be, maybe

I was on the Washington DC TV "American Bandstand " in 1959. I'll never forget watching Wilbert Harrison sing this on that show. What a trip!
