You're the kind of girl that
Everybody's warned me about
You're the kind of person that
Everybody's here staring at

But now you are a topless dancer
Working out of a bar on Times Square
And everybody wishes you were back at the massage parlor
Back there on the avenue

Ooh baby, ooh baby, ooh baby
Ooh-ooh-ooh
Ooh baby, ooh baby, ooh baby
Ooh-ooh-ooh

Your old man was the best P and E man
Down on the streets
And all the guy on the precinct
Always was watching for him on the beat

But when he ripped off Seymour
He was really not a doing so fine
And everything is knots, well except
His hands and legs and maybe even mime

He see they just make them strip off, they say
Ooh baby, ooh baby, ooh
Ooh baby, ooh
Ooh baby, ooh baby, ooh
Hey, baby, ooh-ooh

It's very funny asking me
Why they keep the lights on down so low
Well, yesterday's chase's, today's competition
Or didn't you know

And all the fluorescent lighting make so your wrinkles
They don't show
And it's very funny the way that
Twenty bucks an hour cannot go

If you don't make 'em go, now, now, now
Ooh baby, ooh baby, ooh
Ooh baby, ooh
Ooh baby, ooh baby, ooh baby
Ooh-ooh-ooh

Everybody wondered 'bout you when you was seen
In drinking some beer
You got here from Ohio and your mother said
You hooked her in the real near

That's the way it goes now
Ooh baby, ooh baby, ooh baby
Ooh-ooh-ooh
Hey, shake your bones now, mama
Ooh baby, ooh baby, ah
Hey, ooh baby, ooh
Walk it, now

(Ooh baby, ooh, ooh baby, ooh) Get down
(Ooh baby, ooh, ooh baby, ooh)
(Ooh baby, ooh, ooh baby, ooh)
(Ooh baby, ooh, ooh baby, ooh)
(Ooh baby, ooh, ooh baby, ooh)
(Ooh baby, ooh, ooh baby, ooh)
(Ooh baby, ooh, ooh baby, ooh)
(Ooh baby, ooh, ooh baby, ooh)
