STRIP POLKA (Johnny Mercer) The Andrews Sisters Also recorded by: Spike Jones; The King Sisters; Kay Kyser & his Orch.; Johnny Mercer; Alvino Rey & his Orch.; Bobby Vinton; Lawrence Welk; Frankie Tankovic; Harry Zimmerman. 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 She's as fresh and as wholesome as the flowers in May And she hopes to retire to the farm someday But you can't buy a farm 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 Oh! She hates corny waltzes and she hates the gavotte And there's one big advantage if the music's hot It's a fast moving exit just in case something rips So the band plays the polka while she strips Drop around, take it in, it's the best in the west "Take it off," "Take it off" you can yell like the rest Take her out when it's over, she's a peach when she's dressed But 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 (Transcribed by Bill Huntley - November 2005)
