Ali dances and the audience applauds
Ali don't you go downtown

But the waitress always serves a secret smile
She's gonna pull the curtains down for me, for me
I've got the old man's car
I've got a tab at Zanzibar

But the Yankees grab the headline every time
In black and white for everyone to see
Me, I'm trying just to get to second base
She's gonna give the go head

I've got a jazz guitar
Tonight that's where I'll be
Tell the waitress I'll come back to Zanzibar
She's waiting out in Shantytown

I've got a jazz guitar
Tonight that's where I'll be
