Mitzi Dupree - Deep Purple

(Blackmore/Gillan/Glover)

flying to salt
lake city
seats 3a and b
i was down and needed
a window
but in 3a sat mitzi dupree
she said hi i am mitzi
the queen of the ping pong
where you going boy
i said nowhere
she said i'm movng on
i thought what is this
i cannot resist
here she is
and i've always wanted a girl
with a name
a name like mitzi dupree

she said what do you do
i said i'm a singer in a band
she said ya i'm an entertainer
reached out and took my hand
she was going to a mining town
way up north to do her show
i said it must be cold up there
she said depends on who you know
oh that look in her eye
i can tell you no lies
i'm just a man
she made me feel like a king in my mind
i love you mitzi dupree

i said what is this queen of the ping pong business
she smiled what do you think
it has no connection with china
i said oow have another drink
well i knew right away
that i'd seen her act before
in a room behind a kitchen in bangkok
and three or four times more in singapore
she may not be the first
but i know she ain't the worst
she was mine but i ran out of time
i miss you i love you mitzi dupree
my darling mitzi dupree
