This is the fourth track off of Billy Joel's six album, 52nd Street. This was his first #1 album. Zanzibar is not a single.
Lyrics: Ali dances and the audience applauds Though he's bathed in sweat he hasn't lost his style Ali don't you go downtown You gave away another round for free
Me, I'm just another face at Zanzibar But the waitress always serves a secret smile She's waiting out in Shantytown She's gonna pull the curtains down for me, for me
CHORUS I've got the old man's car, I've got a jazz guitar I've got a tab at Zanzibar Tonight that's where I'll be
Rose, he knows he's such a credit to the game, But the Yankees grab the headlines every time Melodrama's so much fun In black and white for everyone to see Me, I'm trying just to get to second base And I'd steal it if she only gave the sign She's gonna give the go ahead 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
