I'm the hippiest number in town and I'll tell you why,
I'm the snappiest dresser right down to my inch wide tie,
And to get you wise I'll explain it to you,
A few of the things that a face is supposed to do.

I wear zoot suit jacket with side vents five inches long,
I have two-tone brogues yeah you know this is wrong.
But the main thing is unless you're a fool,
Ah you know you gotta know, yeah you know, yeah you gotta be cool.

So all you tickets I just want you to dig me,
With my striped zoot jacket that the sods can plainly see,
So the action lies with all of you guys,
Is how you look in the other, the other, yeah, the other cat's eye.
Well don't you see, well don't you see, well don't you see now,
Well don't you see now, come on baby, 'cause don't you see now...

    General Commentthis is simply about the zoot suit donning mods of the 60s who were so hung up on being hip dressers & consuming purples & other pills, it was a pretty big deal...its a groovy old tune.
