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 some 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

I can't hear this song now without bursting into tears of laughter after hearing The Rock do a cover back in 2003. Look up The Rock Concert LMAO

I can't help but think of The Rock's parody about Sacramento. "I'll be sure to come back when the Lakers beat the Kings in May."

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!😁

@abject T In year 2020, I turned 80, so I win the 'old fart' prize! Yes, I used to listen to this one while cruising down the road back then.

I turn 76 in 2 days! I just wrote a parody of this song for my old pal in Valley City, North Dakota and sent it to him and his wife.

Gussie Grey what does 1959 look like? Does it have 50s jukeboxes and cars? And TV?
