Song : E
E7
I went and bought myself a ticket and
I sat down in the very first ro-oow, whoa-whoaw
A7
They pulled the curtain and then when
they turned the spotlight way down lo-oow, whoa-whoaw
B7
Little Egypt came out strutting, wearing nothing
but a button and a bo-oow, whoa-whoaw

Chorus :
A7
Singing, Yiing yang, Yiing yang.. oh kitchy kitchy kitchy
E7
Yiing yang, Yiing yang...

E7
She had a ruby on her tummy and a diamond big
as Texas on her to-oe, whoa-whoaw
A7
She let her hair down and she did the hoochie-koochie
real slo-oow, whoa-whoaw
B7
When she did her special number on a Zebra skin,
I thought she'd stop the sho-oow, whoa-whoaw

Chorus :
A7
Singing, Yiing yang, Yiing yang.. oh kitchy kitchy kitchy
E7
Yiing yang, Yiing yang...

She did a triple somersault and when she hit the ground,

she winked at the audience and then she turned around.
G#7 A7
She had a picture of a cowboy tattooed on her spine,
A#7
it said, Phoenix, Arizona, nineteen forty-nine.

E7
Yeah, but, let me tell you people, Little Egypt doesn't
dance there anymo--ore ow, whoa-whoaw
A7
She's too busy mopping and taking care of shopping
at the sto-ore ow, whoa-whoaw
B7
Cause we got seven kids and all day long they
crawl around the flo-or ow, whoa-whoaw
Singing,

Outro ad lib:
