Hello, St. Louis

Genre: Children, Musical
Original Story by: Richard Collins

St. Louis

You high and mighty, bright and shiny

fabulous place, St. Louis

St. Louis

You busy, dizzy, razzle-dazzle

scandalous place, St. Louis

Guys with easy money

tryin' to blow it

Dolls with hidden talent

dyin' to show it

Take off for TV Shows

by taxi, by subway

And land on the town

A merry-go-round

St. Louis

Where millionaires and Cinderellas

rendezvous at the Stork

St. Louis Park romantic babies

and their fellas rendezvous in the dark

Crazy city with its hat

on the steeple

Noisy city with

its millions of people

Doorway to glory

and fortune and fame

You'll never get your fill of it

never forget the thrill of it

Glorious, glamorous


St. Louis


Sally Lodger:
With my high-starched collar and my high-top shoes and my hair piled high upon my head

I went to lose a jolly hour on the trolley and lost my heart instead

Andy Williams:
with my light brown derby and my bright green tie

Jane Lodger:
You were quite the handsomest of men

Violet Lodger:
I started to yen

So I counted to ten

Ernest Williams:
Then I counted to ten again

Lodgers Sisters:
Clang, clang, clang went the trolley

Williams Brothers: Ding, ding, ding went the bell

Lodger-Williams Siblings: Zing, zing, zing went my heartstrings from the moment I saw him I fell

Williams Brothers: Chug, chug, chug went the motor

Lodgers Sisters:
Bump, bump, bump went the brake

Lodger-Williams Siblings: Thump, thump, thump went my heartstrings when he smiled I could feel the car shake

Sally Lodger:
He tipped his hat and took a seat

Simon Williams:
He said he hoped he hadn't stepped upon my feet

Charlotte Lodger: He asked my name, I held my breath

Carl Williams:
I couldn't speak because he scared me half to death

Chug, chug, chug went the motor

Flop, flop, flop went the wheels

Lodger-Williams Siblings: Stop, stop, stop went my heartstrings as he started to go then I started to know

Simon Williams and Sally Lodger: How it feels

Andy and Jane:
When the Universe reels

Lodger-Williams Siblings: The day was bright, the air was sweet

The smell of honeysuckle charmed you off your feet

You tried to sing, but couldn't squeak

In fact you loved him so you couldn't even speak

Sally Lodger:
Buzz, buzz, buzz went the buzzer

Simon Williams:
Plop, plop, plop went the wheels

Sally Lodger:
Stop, stop, stop went my heart strings

Sally Lodger and Simon Williams: As he started to leave

I took hold of his sleeve with my hand

And as if it were planned

He stayed on with me and it was grand just to stand

With his hand holding mine to the end of the line


Simon Williams:
Fiddle up, fiddle up on your violin

Lay right on it, rest your chin upon it

Doggone you better begin

And play an overture upon your violin

Hurry up, hurry up with your violin

Make it sooner, don't you stop to tune 'er

Fid, fid, fid, fiddle the middle of your ragtime violin

Sally Lodger And Simon Williams: All night long he calls her snookey ookum, snookey ookums.

All they do is talk like babies.

She's his jelly elly roll.

He's her sugey ugar bowl.

Andy And Jane:
Hear the way they bill and coo, poogywoo, poogywoo, poogywoo?

All night long he calls her snookey ookums, snookey ookums.

All nigh long the neighbors shout "Cut it out! Cut it out! Cut it out!"

They cry, "For goodness sake don't keep us all awake

with your snookey, ookey, ookey , baby talk!"

Simon Williams:
Don't let it bother you

When things go wrong.

If you're glum, just hum this song,

Good luck will come along!

Don't let it bother you

If, now and then,

You may stumble,

Never grumble,

Count from one to ten!

Sally Lodger:
A frown's a smile upside down,

Turn that frown upside down!

Then smile! Sing!

La-de-da-de-da-de-da, sing sing sing!

Don't let it bother you

If skies are grey.

Learn to grin,

Take it on the chin,

Simon and Sally:
Everything will be okay!
