You came a long way from st. louis,
You climbed the ladder of success . . .
I've seen the flashy foreign cars
That were parked out in front of
Your fancy address!

You came a long way from st. louis,
You broke a lot of hearts between . . .
I've met a gang of gloomy guys
Who were doin' all right
'till you came on the scene!

You blew in from the middle-west
And certainly impressed
The population here-abouts . . .
Well baby, i got news for you,
I'm from missouri too,
So, naturally, i got my doubts!

You got 'em droppin' by the way-side,
A feelin' i ain't gonna know . . .
You came a long way from st. louis,
But baby, you still got a long way to go!

My, how you come up!
Hmmm, you really come on!

< instrumental break >

Hey, i'll have your address!
St. louis woman,
You're a st. louis doll!

< instrumental break >

You blew in from the middle-west
And certainly impressed
The population here-abouts . . .
Well baby, i've got news for you,
I'm from missouri too,
So, naturally, i got my doubts!

You got 'em droppin' by the way-side,
A feelin' i ain't gonna know . . .
You came a long way from st. louis,
But baby, you still got a long way to go!

You left st. louis far behind,
Keep this little thought in mind,
You still . . . got a long way to go!
