Kansas City Star lyrics

Published:

I've always had a lot of respect for Roger Miller's ability to use his rapier wit to cut through human foibles and folly.  He loved to laugh at himself and the human condition.  I'd like to have known the man in life.  I always get a few laughs and an uplift listening to him even after I've heard a song countless times:

Kansas City Star

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

expences paid and a car

But I'm on TV here locally

and I can't quit I'm a star

Kansas City star

that's what I are

yodel-de-la-de

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

And I'm the No 1 attraction

in ever' super market parking lot

I'm the king of Kansas City

no thanks Omaha thanks a lot

[ trumpet ]

Haha 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 No 1 attraction

in ever' 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

yodel-de-la-de

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

And I'm the No 1 attraction

in ever' super market parking lot

I'm the king of Kansas City

no thanks Omaha thanks a lot

[ trumpet ]

Kansas City star that's what I are...

Roger Miller
