The Trolley Song from Meet Me in St. Louis is featured in The Rise and Fall of Sue Sylvester, the eleventh episode of Season Six. It is sung by Sue and Doris.

Doris comes to the auditorium when Sue sits lays against the piano with the band playing sad tune. Doris and Sue have a heart to heart talk, when Sue asks her why she's lying about loving her. Doris says that it wasn't a lie, since she never said she loved her. But Doris explains that she and her husband did love her, but showed it in a different way. Doris also tells that when she wanted Sue to watch a musical with her, she always biting, screaming, and try to set Doris on fire, while Sue agrees that she wasn't the easiest kid. They get over their differences and apologize to each other. Then Sue asks her if she really loved Sue's dad. She replies that she did and they met on a Trolley. Before Doris leaves, Sue ask her if she want to sing about it (trolley) with her and they sing and dance together before they part ways.

Lyrics

Sue:
With my high starched collar and my high topped shoes
And my hair piled high upon my head
I went to lose a jolly hour on the trolley
And lost my heart instead

Doris:
With his light brown derby and his bright green tie
He was quite the handsomest of men
I started to yen

Sue:
So I counted to ten

Doris and Sue:
Then I counted to ten again

Doris:
Clang, clang, clang went the trolley

Sue:
Ding, ding, ding went the bell

Doris:
Zing, zing, zing went my heart strings

Doris and Sue:
From the moment I saw him I fell

Sue:
Chug, chug, chug went the motor

Doris:
Bump, bump, bump went the brake

Doris and Sue:
Thump, thump, thump went my heart strings
When he smiled I could feel the car shake

Doris:
He tipped his hat and took a seat

Doris and Sue:
He said he hoped he hadn't stepped upon my feet

Sue:
He asked my name, I held my breath

Doris and Sue:
I couldn't speak because he scared me half to death

Doris:
Buzz, buzz, buzz went the buzzer
Plop, plop, plop went the wheels

Doris with Sue:
Stop, stop, stop went my heart strings
As he started to go then I started to know how it feels
When the universe reels

Band Members:
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

Doris and Sue:
Buzz, buzz, buzz went the buzzer
Plop, plop, plop went the wheels
Stop, stop, stop went my heart strings
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

Band Members:
Clang, clang, clang went the trolley

Doris and Sue:
Zing, zing, zing, zing went my heart!
