"Meet Me in St. Louis, Louis"

Meet me in St. Louis, Louis, meet me at the fair,
Don't tell me the lights are shining any place but there.
We will dance the Hoochee-Koochee, I will be you tootsie wootsie;
Meet me in St. Louis, Louis, meet me at the fair.

Additional Choruses:
 
Meet me in St. Louis, Louis, meet me at the fair,
Take my tip and don't stop running until you are there,
You're a wonder that's no lie-skee, if you don't fall down and die-skee,
Meet me in St. Louis, Louis, meet me at the fair
 
Meet me in St. Louis, Louis, meet me at the fair,
All the boys and all the girls are going to be there;
If they ask about the cashier, you can say he cuts a dash here,
Meet me in St. Louis, Louis, meet me at the fair
 
Meet me in St. Louis, Louis, meet me at the fair,
Don't tell me the lights are shining any place but there;
I'll be waiting at the station, for the whole congregation,
Meet me in St. Louis, Louis, meet me at the fair
