Zoot Suit
The High Numbers Lyrics


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 ????? 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, oh baby,
Well don't you see now, you drive me wild, hmm hmm hmm, you're crazy-looking now.

I've never heard of The High Numbers, but they sound very promising, especially the drummer and bassist.

I hope they release an album soon.

I'm supprised this didn't do better in the charts. Really cool sound.

Marco Casas

dance piece with rhythm .... but with that sad & nostalgic mood that we will always carry in our hearts !!!!!!!!!

Yes! "Zoot Suit" was written (with music copied from American Soul records - Zoot Suit being a direct lift of the tune of The Dynamics "Misery", while "I'm The Face" was based on Slim Harpo's "Got Love If You Want It") by Peter Meaden, the band's first manager. It was meant for a mod audience, but it failed to chart

I love that treble-tone guitar, it suits the melodic quality of the song. Mod goes on forever times ten to the power forever and a year after! I've just discovered it and it's still fresh, it never dates.
