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 moving 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 Ooh, 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.
