Zoot Suit Riot
Who's that whisperin' in the trees?
It's two sailors and they're on leave
Pipes and chains and swingin' hands
Who's your daddy? Yes, I am!

Fat cat came to play, now you can't run fast enough
You'd best stay away when the pushers come to shove

Zoot suit riot (Riot!)
Throw back a bottle of beer
Zoot suit riot (Riot!)
A-pull a comb through your coal-black hair

Zoot suit riot (Riot!)
Throw back a bottle of beer
Zoot suit riot (Riot!)
A-pull a comb through your coal-black hair
Blow, Daddy!

A whipped-up jitterbuggin' brown-eyed man
Stray cat frontin' out an eight-piece band
Cut me, Sammy, and you'll understand
In my veins hot music ran

You got me in a sway, and I want to swing you, dove
Now you sailors know where your women come for love

Zoot suit riot (Riot!)
Throw back a bottle of beer
Zoot suit riot (Riot!)
A-pull a comb through your coal-black hair

You're in a zoot suit riot
You're in a zoot suit riot
You're in a zoot suit riot

Zoo doo zi-ow
Zoo doo zah zoo zay
Hey ah-ba dee-ah
Zay zay zay
Ba-dum zi-yi-yi-yow
Ba-dum zah zoo zay
Zeh zoo zah zeh zoo
Day day day

Oh, you got me in a sway, and I want to swing you, dove
Now you sailors know where your women come for love

Zoot suit riot (Riot!)
Throw back a bottle of beer
Zoot suit riot (Riot!)
A-pull a comb through your coal-black hair

Zoot suit riot (Riot!)
Throw back a bottle of beer
Zoot suit riot (Riot!)
A-pull a comb through your coal-black hair

You're in a zoot suit riot
You're in a zoot suit riot
You're in a zoot suit riot

I think I'm about ready to sing it
