Zoot Suit Lyrics - The Who
Review The Song (2)
I'm the hippiest number in town and I'll tell you why,
I'm the snappiest dresser right down to my inch wide tie,
And to get you wise I'll explain it to you,
A few of the things that a face is supposed to do.
I wear zoot suit jacket with side vents five inches long,
I have two-tone brogues yeah you know this is wrong.
But the main thing is unless you're a fool,
Ah you know you gotta know, yeah you know, yeah you gotta be cool.
So all you tickets I just want you to dig me,
With my striped zoot jacket that the salts can plainly see,
So the action lies with all of you guys,
Is how you look in the other, the other, yeah, the other cat's eye.
Well don't you see, well don't you see, well don't you see now,
Well don't you see now, come on baby, 'cause don't you see now, oh baby,
Well don't you see now, you drive me wild, hmm hmm hmm, you're crazy-looking now.

Mod | Reviewer: Matt | 5/15/10
I am a Who enthusiast. This is pure mod; early sixties rock n' roll at its best. The changes in style and music in the five years from 64 to 69 amazes me and I try to learn about it from the music of the time. Zoot Suit is all about the mod style of the early sixties. Also, I just learned that a "face" is a leader of a group of mods who would pioneer new styles and variations of the typical mod style.
Great Song! | Reviewer: Sarah | 8/25/07
I'm a big fan of The Who and this is a great early track from when they were known as the High Numbers. Very cool song.
