You can pull all the stops out
Till they call the cops out
Grind your behind till you're bend
But you gotta get a gimmick
If you wanna get a hand

You can sacrifice your sacharo
Working in the back row
Bump in a dump till you're dead
Kid you gotta get a gimmick
If you wanna get ahead

You can uh, you can uh, you can uh, uh, uh
That's how Burlesque was born
So I uh, and I uh, and I uh, uh, uh
But I do it with a horn

Once I was a schleppa
Now I'm Miss Mazzeppa
With my revolution in dance
You gotta have a gimmick
If you wanna have a chance

She can uh, she can uh, she can uh, uh, uh
It'll never make her rich
Me, I uh, and I uh, and I uh, uh, uh
But I do it with a switch

I'm electrifying and I ain't even trying
I never have to sweat to get paid
'Cause if you got a gimmick
Gypsy girl you got it made

All them uh and them uh and them uh, uh, uh
Ain't gonna spell success
Me, I uh, and I uh, and I uh, uh, uh
But I do it with finesse

Dressy Tracy Tessie Tura is so much more demurer
Than all them other ladies because
You gotta get a gimmick
If you wanna get applause

Do something special anything special
Earn you a big fancy car
You're more than just a mimic when you gotta gimmick
Take a look how different we are

If you wanna make it
Twinkle while you shake it
If you wanna grind it
Wait till you refined it

If you wanna bump it
Bump it with a trumpet
Get yourself a gimmick
And you too can be a star
