(GET YOUR KICKS ON) ROUTE 66

Original The King Cole Trio version


If you ever plan to motor west
Travel my way, take the highway, that's best
Get your kicks on Route 66

It winds from Chicago to L.A.
More than two thousand miles all the way
Get your kicks on Route 66

Now you go through Saint Louie, Joplin, Missouri
And Oklahoma City looks mighty pretty, you'll see
Amarillo, Gallup, New Mexico
Flagstaff, Arizona, don't forget Winona
Kingman, Barstow, San Bernadino

Won't you get hip to this timely tip
When you make that California trip
Get your kicks on Route 66

Won't you get hip to this timely tip
When you make that California trip
Get your kicks on Route 66
Get your kicks on Route 66
Get your kicks on Route 66
