Little Egypt
The Coaster Lyrics

I went and bought myself a ticket and I sit down in the very first row, wo wo
They pulled the curtain up and when they turned the spotlight way down low, wo wo
Little Egypt came out strutting wearing nothing but a button and a bow, wo wo
Singing, yeah-yeah
Yeah yeah (a-gitcha-gitcha-gitcha)

She had a ruby on her tummy and a diamond big as Texas on her toe, wo wo
She let her hair down and she did the hoochie-koochie real slow, wo wo
When she did her special number on a zebra skin I thought she'd stop the show, wo wo
Singing, yeah-yeah
Yeah-yeah (a-gitcha-gitcha-gitcha)

She did a triple somersault and when she hit the ground
She winked at the audience and then she turned around
She had a picture of a cowboy tattooed on her spine
Saying Phoenix, Arizona, nineteen forty-nine

Yeah, but let me tell you people little Egypt doesn't dance there anymore, wo wo
She's too busy mopping and a-taking care of shopping at the store, wo wo
'Cause we got seven kids and all day long they crawl around the floor, wo wo
Singing, yeah-yeah
Yeah-yeah (a-gitcha-gitcha-gitcha)
Yeah-yeah (a-gitcha-gitcha-gitcha)
Yeah-yeah (a-gitcha-gitcha-gitcha)

OMG that Hully Gully beat is so infectious! No seat down!
I was around when this was a hit the first time… came here lookin for it. Still wonderful.
YouTube has everything.

Gran canción de un gran grupo. Sirvió de inspiración a Paul Mccartney para "Ob-la-di-Ob-la-da".

John Benn

Wonderful song by an incredible group. Amazing sounds & so,so good.


The staccato of that sax really seals the deal. I like it that Little Egypt made an honest man out of him by the song's end.


@ginny white No doubt in my my mind.

he was master The late King Curtis

I guess I’m getting old.
I remember hearing this when it was new. I was a kid and the teenagers
(Who I was a little bit scared of) were playing it on the jukebox.

Maria Hester

I heard it when new also. Great memories and times!


I’m jealous about those kinds of memories. Under Elvis Presley’s version of that awesome song I read a comment from a woman who remembers going to Elvis movies to the cinema right after school and that’s a beautiful “mind-souvenir” too❣️
