Zoot Suit Riot

Album: The Swingin' Hits of the Cherry Poppin' Daddies (1997)
  • 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)

    Pull a comb through your coal black hair

    Zoot suit riot
    (Riot)

    Throw back a bottle of beer
    Zoot suit riot
    (Riot)

    Pull a comb through your coal black hair
    Blow daddy!

    A whipped up jitterbuggin' brown eyed man
    A stray cat frontin' up 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 down
    Now you sailors know
    Where your women come for love

    Zoot suit riot
    (Riot)

    Throw back a bottle of beer
    Zoot suit riot
    (Riot)

    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

    Oh you got me in a sway
    And I want to swing you down
    Now you sailors know
    Where your women come for love

    Zoot suit riot
    (Riot)

    Throw back a bottle of beer
    Zoot suit riot
    (Riot)

    Pull a comb through your coal black hair

    Zoot suit riot
    (Riot)

    Throw back a bottle of beer
    Zoot suit riot
    (Riot)

    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 Writer/s: STEVE PERRY
