The Strip

 
Gypsy Soundtrack Musical, 2003
CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music

The Strip M.C.
Wichita's one and only burlesque theater presents
Miss Gypsy Rose Lee

Gypsy
Let me entertain you
Let me make you smile

Momma Rose
Sing out, Louise!

Gypsy
Let me do a few tricks
Some old and then some new tricks
I'm very versatile
And if you're real good
I'll make you feel good
I'd want your spirit to climb
So let me entertain you
We'll have a real good time,
Yes sir!
We'll have...
A real good time!

Theater Manager
Do something!

Momma Rose
Yeah!

Theater Manager
Take something off!

Gypsy
Momma!

Momma Rose
A ... glove! But say something!

Gypsy
Hello! Hello...everybody!
My name is Gypsy Rose Lee... What's yours!
Mr. Conductor, if you please!
So, let me entertain you...
And we'll have a real good time, yes, sir!
We'll have...
A real good time!

M.C.
And now, Minsky's well famous Burlesque
Presents the queen of the strip-tease, the incomparable,
Miss Gypsy Rose Lee and our salutes to the Garden of Eden!

Gypsy
Pick up your apples girls and back to the trees!
Bon soir, monsieur et monsieur!
Je m'appelle Gypsy Rose Lee
And that concludes my entire performance in French,
I've been too busy learning Greek
Where were you last night?
Some man accused me of being an ecdysiast
Do you know what that means? Do you?
Do you? Oh, you do!
Aha! He's embarrassed!
Don't be embarrassed...I like men without hair!
An ecdysiast is one who or that which
Shed its skin. In vulgar parlance: a stripper
But I'm not a stripper!
At these prices I'm an ecdysiast!
And if you're real good
I'll make you feel good
I want you spirit to climb
Let me entertain you
And well have a real good time, yes, sir!
We'll have...
A real good time!
