patricia the stripper lyrics – chris de burgh

dennis is a menace
with his “anyone for tennis?”,
and he’d beseech me to come keep the score.
and maude said, “oh lord, i’m so terribly bored”.
i really can’t stand it anymore…

i’m going out to dinner
with a gorgeous singer –
to a little place i know
down by the key.

her name is patricia
(she calls herself delicia),
and the reason isn’t
very hard to see.

she said god made her a sinner
just to keep those fat men thinner
as they tumble down in heaps
before her feet.

they hang around in groups
like battle weary troops.
one can often see the
queue right down the street.

because patricia
(or delicia)
not only is a singer,
she also removes all her clothing.

for patricia
is the best stripper in town…

and with a swing of her hips,
she started to strip.
to tremendous applause
she took of her drawers.

and with a lick of her lips,
she undid all her clips,
threw it all in the air,
and everyone stared.

and as the last piece of clothing
fell to the floor,
the police were banging on the door
on a sat*rday night,
in 1924…

take it away boys…

well, patricia was arrested
and everyone detested
the terrible manner in which
she was exposed.

later on in court,
everyone thought
a summer’s run in jail
would be proposed.

but the judge said, “patricia,
or may i say delicia,
the facts of this case lie before me. (knock, knock, knock)
case dismissed…
this girl was in her working clothes…

and with a swing of her hips,
she started to strip.
to tremendous applause
she took off her drawers.

and with a lick of her lips
she undid all her clips,
threw it all in the air,
and everyone stared.

and as the last piece of clothing
fell to the floor,
the police were yelling out for more (more)
on a sat*rday night
in 1924…
