    Zanzibar

    Ali dances and the audience applauds
    Though he's bathed in sweat he hasn't lost his style
    Ali don't you go downtown
    You gave away another round for free

    Me, I'm just another face at Zanzibar
    But the waitress always serves a secret smile
    She's waiting out in Shantytown
    She's gonna pull the curtains down for me, for me

    I've got the old man's car
    I've got a jazz guitar
    I've got a tab at Zanzibar
    Tonight that's where I'll be

    Rose, he knows he's such a credit to the game
    But the Yankees grab the headline every time
    Melodrama's so much fun
    In black and white for everyone to see
    Me, I'm trying just to get to second base
    And I'd steal it if she only gave the sign
    She's gonna give the go ahead
    The inning isn't over yet for me

    I've got the old man's car
    I've got a jazz guitar
    I've got a tab at Zanzibar
    Tonight that's where I'll be

    Tell the waitress I'll come back to Zanzibar
    I'll be hiding in the darkness with my beer
    She's waiting out in Shantytown
    She's gonna pull the curtains down for me, for me

    I've got the old man's car
    I've got a jazz guitar
    I've got a tab at Zanzibar
    Tonight that's where I'll be
