"Little Egypt" lyrics - MICKEY GILLEY

"Little Egypt"

I went and bought myself a ticket
And I sat down in the very first row
They pulled the curtain but then when
They turned the spotlight way down low
Little Egypt came out a-struttin'
Wearin' nothin' but a button and a bow.

Singing, ying-ying, ying-ying,
Ying-ying, Ying-ying.

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-coochie real slow
When she did her special number on the
Zebra skin I thought she'd stop the show.

Singing, ying-ying, ying-ying,
Ying-ying, ying-ying.

She did her 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
Tatooed on her spine
Said, Phoenix, Arizona 1949.

Yeh, let me tell you people Little Egypt
Doesn't dance there anymore
She's too busy moppin' and a-takin'
Care of shoppin' at the store
'Cause we've got seven kids and all day long
They crawl around the floor.

Singing ying-ying, ying-ying,
Ying-ying, ying-ying...
