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
