Lulu was queen of the burlesque
Her window shade dance was great
One by one, she'd pull them up
Til she raised forty feet

But she wore forty-nine
Shades of green, boy
Forty-nine shades of green
The greenest green you've ever seen
Forty-nine shades of green

Took her on a date one Saturday night
We walked by the barber shop
I knew all the fellas were jealous alright
When their eyes began to pop

And they turned forty-nine
Shades of green, boy
Forty-nine shades of green
The greenest green you've ever seen
Forty-nine shades of green

The very first meal that Lulu cooked
We dined by candlelight
I knew that I could die for her
And I almost did that night

Cause I turned forty-nine
Shades of green, boy
Forty-nine shades of green
The greenest green you've ever seen
Forty-nine shades of green

The day that Lulu married me
She hung up her shades for good
And you can see them anytime
You're in our neighborhood

The house with forty-nine
Shades of green, boy
Forty-nine shades of green
The greenest green you've ever seen
Forty-nine shades, forty-nine shades
Forty-nine shades of green
