Billy Joel Zanzibar (12 Gardens Live) Lyrics

Last updated: 03/25/2014 05:26:42 AM

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
Whoa oh oh…
Me, I'm just another face at Zanzibar
But the waitress always serves a secret smile, whoa oh oh
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, I’ll be

Rose, he knows he'll never make the Hall of Fame,
But the Yankees grab the headlines every time
Melodrama's so much fun in black and white for everyone to see
Whoa oh oh, me, I'm trying just to get to second base
And I'd steal it if she only gave the sign, whoa oh oh
She's gonna give the go ahead, the inning isn't over yet 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, 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, I’ll be
