Gotta Get a Gimmick (Mazeppa)
You can pull all the stops out
Till they call the cops out
Grind your behind till you're banned.
But you gotta get a gimmick
If you wanna get a hand.
You can sacrifice your sacharo
Working in the back row.
Bump in a dump till you're dead.
Kid you gotta have a gimmick
If you wanna get ahead.
You can uh...You can uh...
You can uh...uh...uh...
That's how Burlesque was born.
So I uh...and I uh...
And I uh...uh...uh...
But I do it with a horn...
Once I was a Schleppa,
Now I'm Miss Mazzeppa,
With my revolution in dance.
You gotta have a gimmick
If you wanna have a chance!

(Electra)
She can uh... She can uh...
She can uh...uh...uh...
They'll never make her rich.
Me, I uh... and I uh...
And I uh...uh...uh...
But I do it with a switch.
I'm electrifying
And I ain't even trying.
I never had to sweat to get paid
'Cause if you got a gimmick
Gypsy girl, you got it made.

(Tessie Tura)
All them uh and then uh...
And that uh...uh...uh...
Ain't gonna spell success.
Me, I uh... and I uh...
And I uh...uh...uh...
But I do it with finesse.
Lady Tessie Tura is so much more demure-er
Than all them other ladies because-
You gotta get a gimmick
If you wanna get applause.

(ALL)
Do something special
Anything special
And you'll get better because
You're more than just a mimic
When you gotta gimmick
Take a look how different we are!

(Electra)

If you wanna make it,
Twinkle while you shake it.

(Tura)
If you wanna grind it,
Wait till you refined it.

(Mazeppa)
If you wanna bump it,
Bump it with a trumpet!

(ALL)
Get yourself a gimmick and you too,
Can be a star!
