Bill Elliott Swing Orch. HIM: I want a zoot suit with a reet pleat And a drape shape, and a stuff cuff To look sharp enough to see my Sunday gal HER: You want a reef sleeve with a right stripe And a rare square, so the gals will stare When they see you struttin' with your Sunday pal (HIM: That's me) You wanta look keen so your dream will say "You don't look like the same beau" So keen that she'll scream, "Here comes my walkin' rainbow" HIM: So make a zoot suit with a reet pleat And a drape shape, and a stuff cuff To look sharp enough to see my Sunday gal Now, what you want, baby? HER: I want a brown gown with a zop top And a hip slip, and a laced waist In the sharpest taste to see my Sunday man (HIM: In his zoot suit) A scat hat and a zag bag And a slick kiss, so the other chicks Will be jealous when I'm with my Sunday fan I wanta look keen so my dream will say "Ain't I the lucky fellah" So keen that he'll scream, "Baby's in Technicolor" HIM: So make a reet pleat with a drape shape And a stuff cuff, to look sharp enough To see my Sunday, Sunday gal (Transcribed from the Paul Whiteman recording by Mel Priddle - September 2005)
