And Now On With the Show…

After I posted yesterday’s gag about a strip club with parody lyrics (“There’s No Business Like Bare-ly Show Business”), I received an e-mail from my pal cartoonist Kevin Boze who came up with some great lyrics of his own. With his permission, here they are:

MEN’S CHORUS:
The bouncers, the colored lights, the panties, the tops
The audience that stares at you and sighs

WOMEN’S CHORUS:
The headaches, the heartaches, the backaches, the flops (NOTE:  This was just too good a line to change)
The feeling when you make their winkies rise

MEN’S CHORUS:
Excitement when the tipping comes apace

WOMEN’S CHORUS:
The downer when your stripper shoes unlace

ALLS:
There’s no business like ho business
Like no business I know

MEN’S CHORUS:
Every man looks on that stage adoring

WOMEN’S CHORUS:
Sweating but you’re trying to stay cool

MEN’S CHORUS:
No where could you dance and keep on whoring

ALL:
While you’re ignoring that four-foot rule
They’re hip people, those strip people
They’re swinging on the pole

MEN’S CHORUS:
Yesterday you barely could fill out some B’s

WOMEN’S CHORUS:
That night you really wanted to tease

MEN’S CHORUS:
Next day you are showing off your double-D’s

ALL:
Let’s go on with the show
Let’s go on with the show

  2. I am impressed with the lyrics both you and Kevin came up with. Perhaps you have found another niche for your many talents.
