MAZEPPA
You can pull all the stops out
Till they call the cops out
Grind your behind till you're bent
But you gotta get a gimmick
If you wanna get ahead!


You can sacrifice your sacrow
Working in the back row
Bump in a dump till you're dead
But you gotta have a gimmick
If you wanna get ahead


You can uhm... You can uhm...
You can uhm...uhm...uhm...
That's how burlesque was born
So I uhm... and I uhm...
And I uhm...uhm...uhm...
But I do it with a horn


Once I was a Schlepped
Now I'm Miss Mazeppa
With my revolution in dance
You gotta have a gimmick
If you wanna have a chance!


ELECTRA
She can uhm... she can uhm...
She can uhm...uhm...uhm...
They'll never make her rich
See, I uhm... and I uhm...
And I uhm...uhm...uhm...
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 uhm... and then uhm...
And that uhm...uhm...uhm...
Ain't gonna spell success
Me, I uhm... and I uhm...
And I uhm...uhm...uhm...
But I do it with finesse


Lady Tessie Tura is so much more demurer
Than all them other ladies because
You gotta get a gimmick
If you wanna get applause


MAZEPPA, ELECTRA & TESSIE TURA
Do something special
Anything that's special
Will earn you a big fat cigar


You're more than just a mimic
When you got a gimmick
Take a look how different we are


ELECTRA
If you wanna make it
Twinkle while you shake it


TESSIE TURA
If you wanna grind it
Wait till you refined it


MAZEPPA
If you wanna bump it
Bump it with a trumpet


MAZEPPA, ELECTRA & TESSIE TURA
Get yourself a gimmick and you too
Can be a star!
