"I've Got a Gal in Kalamazoo" as written by and Harry/gordon Warren....
A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H
I got a gal in Kalamazoo
Don't want to boast but I know
She's the toast of Kalamazoo
(Zoo, zoo, zoo, zoo, zoo)

Years have gone by
My, my, how she grew
I liked her looks
When I carried her books in Kalamazoo
(Zoo, zoo, zoo, zoo, zoo)

I'm gonna send a wire
Hoppin' on a flyer, leavin' today
Am I dreamin'?
I can hear her screamin', "Hiya, Mr. Jackson"
Everything's O-K, A-L-A-M-A-Z-O

Oh, what a gal, a real pipperoo
I'll make my bid
For that freckle faced kid I'm hurryin' to
I'm goin' to Michigan
To see the sweetest gal in Kalamazoo

(Zoo, zoo)
(Zoo, zoo, zoo, Kalamazoo)

K
(K)

(A)
L A M A Z O

Oh, oh, oh, oh, what a gal, a real pipperoo
We're goin' to Michigan
To see the sweetest gal in Kalamazoo
Zoo, zoo, zoo, zoo, zoo, zoo, zoo, zoo, zoo
Kalamazoo

    General CommentGlenn Miller made the famous recording of this song with Tex Beneke and a singing group. In the movie Orchestra Wives the female vocalist is Marion Hutton and the male vocalists are probably employees of the band as well. youtube.com/… The Modernaires with Jo Stafford had moved on by that time. I am not sure which singing group appeared on the famous recording. It is worth mentioning that Glenn Miller required his soloists to repeat the solo they played on the recording ion every performance. Presumably, the recorded solo was at least in part an improvisation. It might be interesting to compare Tex Beneke's tenor solo with the notes he played on the recording.
