      Strip Polka

Lyrics By Johnny Mercer

 

 

STRIP POLKA

 

There's a burlesque theatre

where the gang loves to go

To see Queenie the cutie of the burlesque show

And the thrill of the evening is

when out Queenie skips

And the band plays the polka while she strips

"Take it off, take it off"

Cries a voice from the rear

"Take it off, take it off"

Soon it's all you can hear

But she's always a lady even in pantomime

So she stops!

And always just in time

Queenie, Queen of them all

Queenie, someday you'll fall

Someday church bells will chime

In strip polka time!

She's as fresh and as wholesome

as the flowers in May

And she hopes to retire

to the ranch someday

But you can't buy a ranch

until you're up in the chips

So the band plays the polka while she strips

“Take it off, take it off”

all the customers shout

“Down in front, down in front”

while the band beats it out

But she's always a lady even in pantomime

So she stops!

And always just in time

Queenie, Queen of them all

Queenie, someday you'll fall

Someday church bells will chime

In strip polka time!
