The Man In The Zoot Suit
-------------------------

I saw her yesterday. I'd know that beautiful blond hair anywhere. She was ducking into a cab quick-like outside The Ritz. Holding the door was a snake-eyed Joe wearing a snazzy Zoot Suit. Never seen him
before. Huh, I bet those threads set him back a few bones.

So it looks like my classy tomato is burnin the candle at both ends. Well my dear, you may have eyes like starlight but nobody plays ol' Sammy for a fool. I got a little plan.....



Zoot Suit (lyrics)
------------------ by mdn

Ima creepin around this city Tippy Toe
peekin into every window
Every gin joint and bar that I know
I'm gonna catch you with that Joe

You think I had to go outta town
Just a couple days and I'll be around
But that's just a cover to bring you out

I'm gonna catch you
The one whos always hiding until the coast is clear
Always sending flowers and love notes to my dear

I dont know what I'ma gonna do
when I find you snuggling with that dude
I might say I'm happy for you two
maybe mess up his fancy Zoot Suit!

Ima sneakin around this city doncha know
peekin in every gazebo
All of the places we used to go
The balcomy at the picture show

you think that you are foolin me
with your sweetie pie and honeybee
but I see your game what this is about

I'm gonna catch you
The one whos always hiding until the coast is clear
Always sending flowers and love notes to my dear

I dont know what I'm gonna do
when I find you snuggling with that dude
I might say I'm happy for you two
Or maybe mess up his fancy Zoot Suit!
