Train down to st. louis
Get me there alright
Over to the city there, you know that one
Where the farmers daughter digs the farmers son
Dig your charlie parker
Basie and young
Witherspoon and jay mcshann
They will come
Oooowoooowoooo

You know she lights the way
Her name is billie, shes a holiday
And the city is eternal -- hey, cant you see?
