That's Not The Way We Do Things Samuel leibowitz (mr. Tambo)
It's a whole new world up north! And by gum, it's time the south started seeing things our way too!
I was passing by two water fountains saturday night
One was marked "for colored only"
And the other for white
Well, i know that
That's the custom here in alabama
But that's not the way
We do things in new york
I was waiting in the courthouse for the trial to begin
When i noticed in the men's room
Only white men came in
Well, i know that
That's the custom here in alabama
But that's not the
Way we do things in new york
Back in manhattan ask anyone
There's no bigger voice
For equal rights than me
I fight for it!
I live for it!
Just ask my maid, magnolia
And i'm sure she'd agree
Let me say the folks up north
All want to show their support
So i'm here to help you
Through your trying hour in court
Although the law may be myopic here in alabama
That is not the way we see things
That's not the way we feel things
That's not the way we do things in new york
Back in manhattan ask anyone
There's no bigger voice
For equal rights than me

I fight for it!
I live for it!
Just ask my cook, jemima

Jemima (roy)
Mammy just loves you, mr. Sammy!

Samuel leibowitz (mr. Tambo)
Just ask my chauffer, rufus

Chauffeur (andy)
What a mensch!

Samuel leibowitz (mr. Tambo)
Just ask our colored laundress
And i'm sure they'll agree

Laundress (clarence)
That's right! Give 'em hell, mr. L!

Samuel leibowitz (mr. Tambo)
As i said, the folks up north
All want to see you go free
So they've sent you down the very best
That's right! They sent me!
Although the law may be disgusting
Here in alabama
That is not the way we see things
That's not the way we feel things
That's not the way we do things
In new york
