Alice Garbonzo Garbet

Lyrics: Robert Hunter?
Music: Robert Hunter?

Sung by Robert Hunter several times in 1979. Often in setlists as "Sweet Alice". I'm not sure if it's a Hunter original - I've not found any other reference to it.

Sweet little Alice Garbonzo Garbet
Was loved by [Ace Carzo] who flew a big jet
He flew it for pleasure, he flew it for fun
He raced it in the airshows and always he won

Singing hi-hi-diddle hi-diddle-hi-bet
Singing sweet little Alice Garbonzo Garbet

This tale isn't tragic, nor yet is it sad
This couple got married and had many tabs
The girls crocheted doilies, the boys all flew jets
Except one named Larry who played for the Mets

Singing hi-hi-diddle hi-diddle-hi-bet
Singing sweet little Alice Garbonzo Garbet
