Thread Name: Lyr Add: Get Your Kicks on Route 66 (Bobby Troup)
Subject: Route 66 COMPLETE lyrics
I tried this a few years ago but with no success. I KNOW there are more verses to Bobby Troup's "Route 66" as I know most of it except for the end. Does anyone know it?
(The Perry Como lyric site lists his version as the complete version but it's not the one I know.)

My verse goes:
"While driving through Ohio check your spare
'Cos soon you'll hit that famous thoroughfare
Get your kicks on Route 66.
(And) if you're in the mood to see the coast
Take the West road, it's the best road, really the most
Get you kicks, etc"
Bridge: (And here's where I get unstuck)

"South of the Great Lakes
You... (sounds like 'feel up the pancakes'?)
The very dear Missouri might stimulate your appetite"
And it's a total blank from here.
Hope someone knows...
