    The original musical actually had slightly different lyrics… In the verse about the ‘burlycue’, Will Parker describes the entertainment in more explicit detail!
    "One of the gals was fat and pink and pretty
    As round above as she was round below
    I could swear that she was padded from her shoulder to her heel
    but later in the second act as she began to peel
    She proved that everything she had was absolutely real!"
    Bit risque for the movie, but I prefer the real lyrics! 😉

    He actually kind of sounds like the scare crow from Wizard Of Oz when he sings! Catchy tune…my favorite in the movie!

    @Khalony On some lyrics sights that’s what shows up but this music is direct from the original movie.

    I used to love this movie when I was really little and hearing this song gave me a strange obsession with visiting kansas city…

  15. Duckeroon on September 13, 2022 at 12:36 am

  19. Khalony on September 13, 2022 at 12:43 am

    In the actual text of this song it’s not "and then she started dancin’ and her dancin’ made me feel" it’s actually "and later in the second act when she began to peel." XD

  20. Bartholomew de Banzie Lampard on September 13, 2022 at 12:45 am

    this is a funny ass song! ha!

  21. StrongRex on September 13, 2022 at 12:46 am

    The intro music at the beginning is EPIC.

  22. Khalony on September 13, 2022 at 12:46 am

    @Duckeroon I was basing my lyrics on the actually lyrics from the musical. We did it this summer so we had actually had all the official sheet music for all the songs and that’s what they said. I just find it really funny that they had to change the lyrics in the movie because it was too inappropriate even though they are talking about a burlesque show already.

  23. Zoe S on September 13, 2022 at 12:46 am

    @Khalony thats what we sang when we did the show as well. i was a bit confused when i heard this one at first

  24. David Wallace on September 13, 2022 at 12:47 am

    @blinkyjen Gene Nelson plays the character Will Parker. He is the one singing this song.

  25. justarandomguy1977 on September 13, 2022 at 12:47 am

    Enjoying these uploads from this musical. I was in the show back in ’08. A shame these uploads cut off in the middle, though.

  26. David Wallace on September 13, 2022 at 12:47 am
