Do Re Mi Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Well, thousands of folks back East they say
Are leavin' home most everyday
They're beatin' the hot oled dusty way
To the California line
Across the desert sands they roll
A gettin' outta that ole dust bowl
They think they're goin' to sugar bowl
But, here is what they find
Oh, the police at the port of entry say
"Hey, you're number fourteen thousand for the day"

If you ain't got that do re mi, boys
But, if you ain't got that do re mi
Oh, you better go back to beautiful Texas
Oklahoma, Georgia, Kansas, Tennessee
California is a garden of Eden
It's a paradise to live in or see
But, believe it or not, you won't find it so hot
If you ain't got that do re mi

If you wanna buy you a home or farm
That can't deal nobody harm
Or take your vacations by the mountains or the sea
Don't swap your old cow for a car
You'd better stay right where you are
Hey, you better take this little tip from me
'Cuz I look through the want ads every day
And the headlines in the papers always say

If you ain't got that do re mi, boys
If you ain't got that do re mi
Oh, you better go back to beautiful Texas
Oklahoma, Georgia, Kansas, Tennessee
California is a garden of Eden
It's a paradise to live in or see
Believe it or not, you won't find it so hot
If you ain't got that do re mi
Yeah, believe it or not, you won't find it so hot
If you ain't got that do re mi
