A long time ago in the forties
They called it "a night in Tunisia"

Blew the squares right off the stage
But the melody still lingers on
Max and miles to name just two
The music was young and strong

From Coltrane to Stevie
Without them where'd we be?
The duke and the pres were there before
The torch is lit, we'll keep the flame

The past you can't ignore
And the melody remains the same
A long time ago in the forties
They called it "a night in Tunisia"

A night in Tunisia
A night in Tunisia
A night in Tunisia
