    Lyrics

    It's Liza with a Z
    Not Lisa with an S
    'Cause Lisa with an S
    Goes "sss" not "zzz"
    It's Z instead of S
    Ly instead of Lee
    It's simple as can be
    See, Liza!
    I'll do it again...

    It's Liza with a Z
    Not Lisa with an S
    'Cause Lisa with an S
    Goes "sss" not "zzz"
    It's Z instead of S
    Ly instead of Lee
    It's simple as can be
    See, Liza!

    Now - if my name were Ada,
    I'd be Ada,
    Even backwards I'd be Ada
    Or if my name were Ruth,
    Then I'd be Ruth,
    Because with Ruth,
    What can you do?
    Or Sally, or Margaret, or Ginger or Faye
    But when you're a Liza
    You always have to say...

    It's Liza with a Z
    Not Lisa with an S
    'Cause Lisa with an S
    Goes "sss" not "zzz"
    It's Z instead of S
    Ly instead of Lee
    It's simple as can be
    See, Liza!

    Oh! And that is only half of it
    There's another way
    Fate treats me cruelly.
    How often I remember someone saying
    "There she goes, Lisa Minooli!"
    Or Minoli, or Miniola, or Minili, or Minelie
    So is it a wonder, I very often cry?

    It's M-I-Double N,
    then-E-Double L-I,
    You double up the N, thats nn, not ll
    Then E, double the L, end it with an I,
    That's the way you say Minnelli...
    Liza Minnelli,
    It's Italian,
    Blame it on papa,
    What can I do?

    Every Sandra
    Who's a Sahndra,
    Every Mary who's really Marie
    Every Joan
    Who is a Joanne
    Has got to agree with me
    When I've announced
    I don't mind being pommelled
    Or trampled or trounced
    But it does drive you bats
    To be miss, Miss pronounced...

    It's Liza with a Z
    Not Lisa with an S
    'Cause Lisa with an S
    Goes "sss" not "zzz"
    It's Z instead of S
    Ly instead of Lee
    It's simple as can be
    See, Liza!

    Then M-I-Double N,
    then-E-Double L-I,
    You double up the N, thats "nn," not "ll,"
    Then E, double the L, end it with an I,
    That's the way you say...Minnelli...
    Liza Minnelli!!
    It's easy!
    It's easy! See, it's Leezy!
    No! Liza........!
