Who's the real ambassador? It is evident we represent American society Noted for its etiquette, its manners and sobriety We have followed protocol with absolute propriety We're Yankees to the core. We're the real ambassadors Though we may appear as bores We are diplomats in our proper hats Our attire becomes habitual, along with all the ritual The diplomatic corps Has been analyzed and criticized by NBC and CBS Senators and congressmen are so concerned they can't recess The State Department stands and all your coup d'etat have met success They caused this great uproar Who's the real ambassador, yeah, the real ambassador? Louis: I'm the real ambassador. It is evident I was sent by government to take your place All I do is play the blues and meet the people face-to- face I'll explain and make it plain, I represent the human race I don't pretend no more. Who's the real ambassador? Certain facts we can't ignore In my humble way I'm the USA Though I represent the government The government don't represent some policies I'm for. Oh we learned to be concerned about the constitutionality In our nation segregation isn't a legality Soon our only differences will be in personality That's what I stand for! Who's the real ambassador, yes, the real ambassador?
