Thread Name: Lyr Add: Get Your Kicks on Route 66 (Bobby Troup)
Subject: lyrics rqd: Route 66 2nd verse
I heard years ago a SECOND verse to R66. and am missing a couple of lines. My version,I THINK by the Andrew Sisters, was:

            "If you're in the mood to see the coast
            Take the west road that's the best road
            It's the most
            Get your kicks...
            While driving through Ohio check your spare,
          'Cos soon you'll hit that famous thoroughfare,
            Get you kicks... "
            (And here's where my memory fails)            
          "South of the Great Lakes peel up the pancakes(?)
            The very dear Missouri might stimiulate your appetite" -
            what comes next?

Can anyone fill in the blanks and check the rest for veracity?
