There's a place where the birds sing bass (base) Rabbits laugh in a bulldog's face Trains don't stop at my home town 'Cause woodpeckers knocked the depot down
There the girls grow tall and slim, The boys grow whiskers on their chin, Their ears grow out and their toes turn in, Out in that Western town
Folks don't stay out very late Way out West in Kansas, They take the sidewalks in at eight Way out West in Kansas
It's some town, by heck, I'll swear, You can stand in the old town square And knock on ev... er... y front door Way out West in Kansas Additional Verses I know a couple, man and wife Way out west in Kansas They sit out on their porch at night Way out west in Kansas They sit out on the porch at night And hold each others' hands so tight If one turns loose they start to fight Way out west in Kansas
The sun's so hot that eggs will hatch, Way out west in Kansas; It popped the corn in a popcorn patch, Way out west in Kansas. An old mule coming down the path, Saw the corn and lost his breath. Thought it was snow and froze to death, Way out west in Kansas.
