"Willie The Pimp" as written by and Frank Zappa....
I'm a little pimp with my hair gassed back
Pair a khaki pants with my shoe shined black

Got a little lady . . . walk the street
Tellin' all the boys that she cain't be beat

Twenny dollah bill (I can set you straight)
Meet me onna corner boy 'n don't be late

Man in a suit with a bow-tie neck
Wanna buy a grunt with a third party check

Standin' onna porch of the Lido Hotel
Floozies in the lobby love the way I sell:

HOT MEAT
HOT RATS
HOT CATS
HOT RITZ
HOT ROOTS
HOT SOOTS

HOT MEAT
HOT RATS
HOT CATS
HOT ZITZ
HOT ROOTS
HOT SOOTS

    General Commentoh come on i cant believe im the first person to comment on this song, its awesome

    my friend introduced me to frank about three days ago, and this song makes me feel so happy. its about a pimp, obviously, and the hooting at the start of the solo cracks me up everytime lol.

    i dont know much about zappa btw, can someone tell me if its a sax or a violin at the start of this song? it sounds like both of them to me

    General CommentThis is one of my favourite songs ever, the violine playes by Sugar Cane Harris is as awesome as Captain Beefhearts vocals. But Zappa hit it all with the magnificant Solo, which really is the best i ever heared.
    I'm going into eBay now to buy a zappa sticker. it kicks ass.

    General CommentI love the guitar solo in this, make me feel happy and just want to groove. Not much to say about the lyrics fairly obvious, see the album title got into the lyrics on this one.

    General CommentThe violin in the intro is Sugar Cane Harris? I thought it was Jean-Luc Ponty. What does JLP play on for Zappa?

    General CommentI just checked out the "Hot Rats" Credits in my CD Booklet, JLP plays Violin on the magnificant "It must be a camel" while SCH plays on "Willie The Pimp". Allright guys, lets just make a WTP-Guitar-Solo-Lovers meeting, just sit together or dance to the solo and go home after that. I live in germany, is that lokation ok? :)
    Has anyone here seen the Zappa plays Zappa tour by dweezil? It was amazing!!!

    General CommentI just got into Zappa about a year and a half ago and when I first heard this song, it blew me away. The solo is truly amazing.

    General CommentCaptain Beefheart's vocals on this track are not just amazing as hell, but I seriously, have a hard time trying to decifer which part of the song to get the "chills" to... CB's vocals or FZ's powerful solos in this song!! How fucking lucky were these two people to have actually grown up together in HS, huh!!?!? I truly wish that they would've done a lot more songs together!! Great song, period.
