Step right up, folks
And see Little Egypt do her
Famous dance of the Pyramids

She walks, she talks
She crawls on her belly
Like a reptile

Just one thin dime
One tenth of a dollar
Step right up, folks

I went and bought myself a ticket
And I sat down in the very first row
They pulled the curtain up and when
They turned the spotlight way down low

Little Egypt came out strutting
Wearing nothing but a
Button and a bow

Singing, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Gitchee gitchee gitchee
Yeah, yeah, yeah yeah

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 koochie real slow

When she did her special

Number on a zebra skin
I thought she'd stop the show

Singing, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Gitchee gitchee gitchee
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

She did a 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 tattooed on her spine
Saying Phoenix, Arizona
Nineteen forty-nine

Yeah, but let me tell you people
Little Egypt doesn't dance there anymore
She's too busy mopping and a taking
Care of shopping at the store

Cause we've got seven kids
And all day long they crawl
Around the floor

Singing, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Gitchee gitchee gitchee
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah...
