I’m Going To Kansas City

 

In this blog, I’m going to include the lyrics of some of the great tunes that mention Kansas City. Being that The Beatles are my all-time favorite group, I’ve got to start with a song they sang in Kansas City during their American tour on September 17, 1964.

 

Kansas City, Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey Medley

Written by Jerry Leiber, Mike Stoller & Little Richard (Richard Penniman)

 

Here’s a version by the Beatles performed in 1964 on “Shindig”:

Ah,
Kansas City
Gonna get my baby back home, yeah, yeah.
I'm going to Kansas City
Gonna get my baby back home, yeah, yeah,
Well, it's a long, long time since
My baby's been gone.

Ah,
Kansas City
Gonna get my baby one time, yeah, yeah.
I'm going to
Kansas City
Gonna get my baby one time, yeah, yeah.
It's just a-one, two, three, four
Five, six, seven, eight, nine.

 

Oww!

 

(Instrumental)

Hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, baby.
Yeah, now gal
I said, now, now pal.
Yeah, tell me, baby

What’s been wrong with you?

Yeah, I said bye
Bye-bye, baby, bye-bye.
Ooh, so long
Bye-bye, baby, I'm gone.
Yeah, I said, bye-bye baby
Bye, bye, bye, Oww!

 

Goodbye, bye-bye, baby, bye-bye
Bye-bye, baby, bye-bye.
Ooh, so long
Bye-bye, baby, I'm gone.
Yeah, I said, bye-bye baby
Bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye.
