(This one's for you, Dad. :)
A G F E (stop)
G[E]ot a letter just this mornin'
It was post[B7]marked Omaha
It was typed and neatly written
Offerin' [E]me this better job
Better job at higher wages, expenses p[A]aid and a car
But I'm o[B7]n TV here locally and I can't quit
I'm a s[E]tar!
I come on the TV a-grinnin'
Wearin' pis[B7]tols and a hat
It's a kiddie show and I'm a hero o[E]f the younger set
I'm the number one attraction of every superm[A]arket parking lot
I'm the k[B7]ing of Kansas City
No thanks, Omaha. Thanks a l[E]ot!
Ka[B7]nsas City Star, that's what I are...
(a cappella)
Yodel-ee-da-layeeee, you oughta see my car
I dr[E]ive a big old Cadillac with wire wheels
Got rhine[B7]stones on the spokes
I got credit down at the grocery store
And my barber tells me j[E]okes
I'm the number one attraction of every sup[A]ermarket parking lot
I'm the ki[B7]ng of Kansas City
No thanks, Omaha. Thanks a l[E]ot!
(a cappella)
Stay tuned, we're gonna have a Popeye cartoon in a minute... (strum E)
