"Kansas City Shuffle" as written by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller....
Its a blindfold kick back type of a game
Callled the Kansas City Shuffle
Whereas you look left and they fall right
Into the Kansas City Shuffle
Its a they-think you-think you don't know
Type of Kansas City hustle
Where you take your time
Wait your turn
And hang them up, and out to dry

(indistinct voice)

Its a shakedown switch arrive in town
Type of Kansas City Shuffle
Gotta' make both sides and let it ride
On the Kansas City Shuffle
Now the tables turned the lessons learned
You've gotta earn yourself some trouble
Revenge like this, never sweet-
You've got yourself a long ride home

(indistinct voice)

    General CommentIt's indistinct. Sounds kind of like yowling.

    I think the song, is about a very slickly orchestrated revenge, but as it is always alledged it doesn't fix anything. Quite the contrary it feels like it has erroded the orchestrator: "Revenge like this, never sweet- You've got yourself a long ride home"
