WAY OUT WEST from "Babes In Arms" 1937 musical New York Richard Rodgers (m) Lorenz Hart (l) 1937 as recorded by Mardi Bayne w Orchestra conducted by Lehman Engel 1951 New York I've travelled the plains, In mountain streams I've paddled, Over the Rockies I would trail. I'd hark to the strains Of cowboys in the saddle, Very unmusical but male! I've roamed o'er the ranch with the herd, Where seldom is heard an intelligent word! Get along little taxi, you can keep the change, I'm ridin' home to my kitchen range, Way out west on West End Avenue! Oh, I love to listen to the wagon wheels That bring the milk that your neighbour steals, Way out west on West End Avenue! Keep all your mountains And your lone prairie so pretty, Give me the fountains That go wrong in Rodeo City! I would trade your famous steer and antelope For one tall beer and a canteloupe, Way out west on West End Avenue, yippee-aye-ay! Get along little taxi, you can keep the change, I'm ridin' home to my kitchen range, Way out west on West End Avenue! Oh, I love to listen to the wagon wheels That bring the milk that your neighbour steals, Way out west on West End Avenue! Keep all your mountains And your lone prairie so pretty, Give me the fountains That go wrong in Rodeo City! I would trade your famous steer and antelope For one tall beer and a canteloupe, Way out west on West End Avenue, yippee-aye-ay! Yippee-aye-ay! Yippee-aye-ay!
