    Lyrics

    There's a burlesque theatre where the gang loves to go
    To see Queenie the cutie of the burlesque show
    And the thrill of the evening is when out Queenie skips
    And the band plays the polka while she strips

    "Take it off," "Take it off" Cries a voice from the rear
    "Take it off," Take it off" Soon it's all you can hear
    But she's always a lady even in pantomime
    So she stops! And always just in time

    She's as fresh and as wholesome as the flowers in May
    And she hopes to retire to the farm someday
    But you can't buy a farm until you're up in the chips
    So the band plays the polka while she strips

    "Take it off," "Take it off" all the customers shout,
    "Down in front" "Down in front" while the band beats it out
    But she's always a lady even in pantomime
    So she stops! And always just in time

    Queenie, Queen of them all
    Queenie, someday you'll fall
    Someday church bells will chime
    In strip polka time

    Oh! She hates corny waltzes and she hates the gavotte
    And there's one big advantage if the music's hot
    It's a fast moving exit just in case something rips
    So the band plays the polka while she strips

    Drop around, take it in, it's the best in the west
    "Take it off," "Take it off" you can yell like the rest
    Take her out when it's over, she's a peach when she's dressed
    But she stops! And always just in time

    Queenie, Queen of them all
    Queenie, someday you'll fall
    Someday church bells will chime
    In strip polka time
