Magic In Tunes: 05/24/2015 – Route 66

Route 66 is one of the songs that has been sung by so many singers in so many tunes and tones. Nat King Cole might have first performed on it but this no longer belongs to one singer or band. This song has become a universal song for all those roadtrips one has taken or taking or planning to take. How best can anyone depict their fun of winding thru roads of so many beautiful cities than with these lines.

From the 2006 American animated sports film by Disney titled Cars and Sung by John Mayer. Lyrics penned by Bobby Troup. Music was composed by Randy Neman. Incidentally the film played the original Nat King Cole version and one by Chuck Berry as well. Here is the video for the John Mayer version though (not the original video from the film..alas couldn’t find it).



Lyrics in English:

Well If You Ever Plan To Motor West
Travel My Way, Take The Highway That's The Best
Get Your Kicks On Route 66

Well It Winds From Chicago To LA
More Than Two Thousands Miles All The Way
Get Your Kicks On Route 66

Well It Goes To St. Louis
Down To Missouri
Oklahoma City Looks Oh So Pretty
You'll See Amarillo
Gallup, New Mexico
Flagstaff, Arizona
Don't Forget Wynonna
Kingman, Barstow, San Bernardino

Won't You Get Hip To This Kindly Tip
And Go Take That California Trip
Get Your Kicks On Route 66

Well It Goes To St. Louis
Down To Missouri
Oklahoma City Looks Oh So Pretty
You'll See Amarillo
Gallup, New Mexico
Flagstaff, Arizona
Don't Forget Wynonna
Kingman, Barstow, San Bernardino

Won't You Get Hip To This Kindly Tip
And Go Take That California Trip
Get Your Kicks On Route 66
Get Your Kicks On Route 66
