Dionne Warwick - Do you know the way to San José
Tekst: Hal David / Muziek: Burt Bacharach
(1968)






Do you know the way to San José
I’ve been away so long, I may go wrong and lose my way
Do you know the way to San José
I’m going back to find some peace of mind in San José



L.A. is a great big freeway
Put a hundred down and buy a car
In a week, maybe two, they’ll make you a star
Weeks turn into years, how quick they pass
And all the stars that never were
Are parking cars and pumping gas



You can really breath in San José
They’ve got a lot of space, there’ll be a place where I can stay
I was born and raised in San José
I’m going back to find some peace of mind in San José



Fame and fortune is a magnet
It can pull you far away from home
With a dream in your heart you’re never alone
Dreams turn into dust and blow away
And there you are without a friend
You pack your car and ride away



I’ve got lots of friends in San José
Do you know the way to San José



Oh, L.A. is a great big freeway
Put a hundred down and buy a car
In a week, maybe two, they’ll make you a star
Weeks turn into years, how quick they pass
And all the stars that never were
Are parking cars and pumping gas



I’ve got lots of friends in San José, ho hohoho
Do you know the way to San José, hm, hmhmhm
Can’t wait to get back to San José
