OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    C4

Heads in, grand parade
There a burleque 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
The band plays a 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
She's always a lady even in pantomime
And she stops, and always just in time


FIGURE    C4, corner progression

Head two ladies to the right you chain when you get the time
Head couples curlique and do the walk & dodge
Circle 4 the outside two, break out to a line of 4
Move it up to the middle and back, pass thru and bend the line
Spin the top, two by two, with the partner turn thru
Swing the corner lady, take a long promenade
She's always a lady even in pantomime
And she stops, and always just in time


TAG

Everybody bow to the partners, corners all
Whoa there, that's it, that's all!

Strip Polka Lyrics ID: 2556

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

Lyrics by Johnny Mercer.
Recorded by Johnny Mercer; The Andrews Sisters; many others.
