(Leiber - Stoller)

I went and bought myself a ticket
and I sat down in the very first row
They pulled the curtain but then
when they turned the spotlight way down low
Little Egypt came out a-struttin'
wearin' nothin' but a button and a bow

Singing, ying-ying, ying-ying, ying-ying, ying-ying

She had a ruby on her tummy
and a diamond big as Texas on her toe
She let her hair down and she
did the hoochie-coochie real slow
When she did her special number on the zebra skin
I thought she'd stop the show

Singing, ying-ying, ying-ying, ying-ying, ying-ying

She did her triple somersault
and when she hit the ground
She winked at the audience and then she turned around
She had a picture of a cowboy tatooed on her spine
Said, Phoenix, Arizona 1949

Yeh, let me tell you people
Little Egypt doesn't dance there anymore
She's too busy mopping and
a-takin' care of shopping at the store
'Cos we've got seven kids
and all day long they crawl around the floor

Singing ying-ying, ying-ying, ying-ying, ying-ying
