The Coasters

The Coasters are an American rhythm and blues/rock and roll vocal group that had a string of hits in the late 1950s. Beginning with "Searchin'" and "Young Blood," their most memorable songs were written by the songwriting and producing team of Leiber and Stoller. Although the Coasters originated outside of mainstream doo wop, their records were so frequently imitated that they became an important part of the doo wop legacy through the 1960s. more »

I went and bought myself a ticket and 
I sat down in the very first row, wo wo. 
They pulled the curtain but then 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! Yeah yeah! Yeah yeah''.

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! Yeah yeah! Yeah yeah!". 

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! Yeah yeah! Yeah yeah!"
