The High Numbers.
(Another early before
'The Who' single.)
Intro: Abm7 Ebm
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.
Break: Ab Ebm7 Ab Abm7 Ebm F#m Ebm7 Ab Ebm7
So all you tickets I just want you to dig me,
With my striped zoot jacket that the salts 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, oh yeah,
Well don't you see now, you drive me wild,
Hmm hmm hmm, you're crazy-looking now.
