Track Name: Route 66
Well if you ever plan to motor west
Go my way, take the highway that’s the best
Get your kicks on Route 66

Well it winds from Chicago to L.A.
More than 2000 miles all the way
Get your kicks on Route 66

Well it goes through St Louis Down to Missouri
Oklahoma city looks oh so pretty You’ll see Amarillo,
Gallup, New Mexico
Flagstaff, Arizona
Don't forget Winona
Kingsman, Barstow, San Bernardino

Get hip, Get hip, Get hip to this kindly tip
When you make that California trip
Get your kicks on Route 66

Well it starts in Chicago
Then Down to St Louis
Tusla, Oklahoma
And on through Sepulpa
We'll be cruisin’ through Glenrio,
And Laguna, New Mexico
Winslow, Arizona
Flagstaff after Winona
Needles, Barstow, Rancho Cucamonga

Get hip, Get hip, Get hip to this kindly tip
When you make that California trip
Get your kicks on Route 66
Track Name: Slapping The Cakes On Me
I walked in, I sat down, Took my customary look around
I saw a fine young thing headin straight my way
Before I could think of something slick to say
she smiled, sat down and said, "Yes you may."

she was slappin the cakes on me my friend, slappin the cakes on me
she was slappin the cakes on me my friend, as any fool could plainly see

she was full of feminine expertise,
she was on her toes and I was on my knees,
she was slappin the cakes on me my friend, slappin the cakes on me

I was mute, I was mum, I was trying not to look to dumb
I said, "I certainly hope you won't misconstrue,
But perhaps we could have a little drink or 2."
I said, "What's your pleasure?" , she said, "Guys like you."

she was slappin the cakes on me my friend, slappin the cakes on me
she was slappin the cakes on me my friend, as any fool could plainly see

Well she grabbed my leg and gave a friendly squeeze
I said hello sweetheart," she said, "No names please."
she was slappin the cakes on me my friend, slappin the cakes on me

We walked out, hand in hand, Exactly like the lady planned
That's when I moved in with my smoothest line
I said, "Look here woman." I said, "What's your sign?"
she said, "Later for that, your place or mine?"

she was slappin the cakes on me my friend, slappin the cakes on me
she was slappin the cakes on me my friend, as any fool could plainly see

she was a ruthless master of cool intrique
she was over my head, I was out of my league
she was slappin the cakes on me my friend, slappin the cakes on me
she was slappin the cakes on me my friend, slappin the cakes on me

Now to tell you the truth that's exactly what happened
just the other night when this lady started slappin the cakes on me,
slapppin the cakes on me
Track Name: The Surrey With The Fringe On Top
Chicks and ducks and geese better scurry
When I take you out in the surrey,
When I take you out in the surrey with the fringe on top

Watch that fringe and see how it flutters
When I drive them high stepping strutters.
Nosey pokes will peek thru' their shutters and their eyes will pop

The wheels are yeller, the upholstery's brown
The dashboard's genuine leather,
With isinglass curtains you can roll right down
In case there's a change in the weather.

Two bright sidelight's winking and blinking,
Ain't no finer rig I'm a-thinking
You can keep your rig if you're thinking that I'd care to swap
For that shiny, little surrey with the fringe on the top

I can see the stars getting blurry,
As we drive back home in the surrey,
Driving slowly home in the surrey with the fringe on top

I can feel the day getting older,
Feel that sleepy head on my shoulder,
Nodding, drooping, so close to my shoulder, till it falls kerplop

The sun is swimmin' on the rim of a hill
The moon is taking a header,
And just as I'm thinkin' all the earth is still
A lark'll wake up in the medder.

Hush, you bird, my baby's a-sleepin'!
Maybe got some dreams worth a-keepin'
Whoa! you team, and just keep a-creepin' at a slow clip clop
Don't you hurry with the surrey with the fringe on the top

Well those chicks, and ducks, and gees better scurry
When I take you out in the surrey
I'll take you out in the surrey with the fringe on top
I'll take you out in the surrey with the fringe on top
Track Name: You're The First, My Last, My Everything
My first, My last, My everything
And the answer to all my dreams
You are my sun, my moon
My Guiding Star
My kind of wonderful
That's what you are

I know, there's only, only one like you
There's no way they could have made two
You're all I'm living for
Your love I'll keep for evermore
You're My first, My last, my everything

With you, I've found, so many things
A love so new only you could bring
Can't you see it's true
You make me feel this way
You're like the morning dew
On a brand new day

I see, so many, so many ways that I
That I can love ya, till the day I die
You're my reality
And I'm lost in a dream
You're My first, My last, My everything

I see, so many, so many ways that I
That I can love ya, till the day I die
You're all I'm living for
Your love I'll keep for evermore
You're My first
My last
My everything
