The Streets Of Miami
As I wandered out On the streets of Miami I said to myself This is some fancy town I called up my partner And said, "Hello, Sammy Go pack up your satchel And mosey on down" I got me a bunk In the old Roney Plaza With breakfast and dinner Included of course I caught forty winks On my private piazza Then I rented a pinto From Hertz Rent-a-Horse He rented a pinto from Hertz Rent-a-Horse My partner flew down On a non-scheduled airline You never did see Such a pale-looking man I recognized him From his receding hairline He recognized me From my beautiful tan Twas then that I heard Fighting words from my partner He said, "Marvin, the Roney is no place to stay I'm going to the Fontainebleau Partner, it's mod'ner And I'll charge to the firm sixty dollars a day" He'll charge to the firm sixty dollars a day I said to him, "Paleface, You hanker for trouble With the company checkbook You quick on the draw" He smiled and said, "Stranger, For me that goes double 'Cause west of the Fontainebleau I am the law" Next morning The whole Lincoln road was deserted And somewhere a hi-fi was playing a tune 'Cause everyone knew Someone's gonna be murdered In a duel in the sun On the stroke of high noon A duel in the sun at the stroke of high noon I took careful aim With my trusty revolver The clock in the Fontainebleau Struck twelve o'clock I shot and Sam crumbled Just like a piece halvah And that's what they called A bad day at Black Rock They came with a posse And took my sixgun away The crowd was too angry To leave me in jail The sheriff said, "Outlaw I'm gon' let you run away But don't ever be seen South of Ft. Lauderdale" So now I can never go back to Miami And New York is so cold That a person could die I'd be better off dead Like my late partner Sammy 'Cause he's in that big Fontainebleau in the sky 'Cause he's in that big Fontainebleau in the sky!
