little egypt lyrics – mickey gilley

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 b*tton 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 moppin’ and a-takin’
care of shoppin’ at the store
’cause we’ve got seven kids and all day long
they crawl around the floor.

singing ying-ying, ying-ying,
ying-ying, ying-ying…
