Elvis PresleyLittle 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 tattooed on her spine Said, Phoenix, Arizona 1949 Yeah, but let me tell you people Little Egypt doesn’t dance there anymore She’s too busy mopping And a-takin’ care of shopping 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
