  • Song Lyrics:
    Smelling like a brewery,
    looking like a tramp
    I ain't got a quarter
    got a postage stamp
    Been five o'clock shadow boxing
    all around the town
    Talking with the old men
    sleeping on the ground
    Bazanti bootin'
    al zootin al hoot
    and Al Cohn
    sharin' this apartment
    with a telephone pole
    and it's a fish-net stockings
    spike-heel shoes
    Strip tease, prick tease
    car kease blues
    and the porno floor show
    live nude girls
    dreamy and creamy
    and the brunette curls
    Chesty Morgan and a
    Watermelon Rose
    raise my rent and take off
    all your clothes
    with the trench coats
    magazines bottle full of rum
    she's so good, it make
    a dead man ***, with
    pasties and a g-string
    beer and a shot
    Portland through a shot glass
    and a Buffalo squeeze
    wrinkles and cherry
    and twinky and pinky
    and FeFe live from Gay Paree
    fanfares rim shots
    back stage who cares
    all this hot burlesque for me

    cleavage, cleavage thighs and hips
    from the nape of her neck
    to the lip stick lips
    chopped and channeled
    and lowered and louvered
    and a cheater slicks
    and baby moons
    she's hot and ready
    and creamy and sugared
    and the band is awful
    and so are the tunes

    crawlin' on her belly shakin' like jelly
    and I'm getting harder than
    Chinese algebraziers and cheers
    from the compendium here
    hey sweet heart they're yellin' for more
    squashing out your cigarette butts
    on the floor
    and I like Shelly
    you like Jane
    what was the girl with the snake skins name
    it's an early bird matinee
    come back any day
    getcha little sompin
    that cha can't get at home
    getcha little sompin
    that cha can't get at home
    pasties and a g-string
    beer and a shot
    Portland through a shot glass
    and a Buffalo squeeze
    popcorn, front row
    higher than a kite
    and I'll be back tomorrow night
    and I'll be back tomorrow night
