You Came A Long Way From St. Louis Lyrics

Artist: Perry Como
Album: Como Swings

You came a long way from St. Louis,
You climbed the ladder of success . . .
I've seen the flashy foreign cars
That were parked out in front of
Your fancy address!

You came a long way from St. Louis,
You broke a lot of hearts between . . .
I've met a gang of gloomy guys
Who were doin' all right
'Till you came on the scene!

You blew in from the middle-west
And certainly impressed
The population here-abouts . . .
Well baby, I got news for you,
I'm from Missouri too,
So, naturally, I got my doubts!

You got 'em droppin' by the way-side,
A feelin' I ain't gonna know . . .
You came a long way from St. Louis,
But baby, you still got a long way to go!

< instrumental break >

My, how you come up!
Hmmm, you really come on!

< instrumental break >

Hey, I'll have your address!
St. Louis woman,
You're a St. Louis doll!

< instrumental break >

You blew in from the middle-west
And certainly impressed
The population here-abouts . . .
Well baby, I've got news for you,
I'm from Missouri too,
So, naturally, I got my doubts!

You got 'em droppin' by the way-side,
A feelin' I ain't gonna know . . .
You came a long way from St. Louis,
But baby, you still got a long way to go!

You left St. Louis far behind,
Keep this little thought in mind,
You still . . . got a long way to go!
