Am9                 F9
Ali dances and the audience applauds
            Am9                                Bbmaj7
Though he's bathed in sweat he hasn't lost his style
C                F
   Ali don't you go downtown
C                   Am                Bm7-5    E7
   You gave away another round for free       Whoa...

Am9                   F9
Me, I'm just another face at Zanzibar
        Am9                               Bbmaj7
But the waitress always serves a secret smile   Whoa...
C                     F
She's waiting out in Shantytown
E7                   Am                Bm7-5  G      C
She's gonna pull the curtains down for me,      for me

C   G+/C (or Cmaj/min7)   Cm7
   I've got the old man's car,
Fm9/C              Bb
I've got a jazz guitar
Ebmaj7           Abmaj7  Gm7   Fm7
I've got a tab at Zan -- zi -- bar 
     F#m7-5  Gm7         Abmaj7     Ab7 D7      G+ B7 E
(Cos) To -- night that's where I'll be     I'll be       

Am9                         F9
Rose, he knows he's such a credit to the game,
        Am9                              Bbmaj7
But the Yankees grab the headlines every time
C               F
    Melodrama's so much fun
C                          Am          Bm7-5   E7
    In black and white for everyone to see     whoa
Am9                    F9
Me, I'm trying just to get to second base
        Am9                           Bbmaj7
And I'd steal it if she only gave the sign     whoa
C                       F
   She's gonna give the go ahead
E7                   Am            Bm7-5  G       C
    The inning isn't over yet for me,         for me


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
