Itsy Bitsy Tennie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini

by Sha Na Na

Sha Na Na is an American rock and roll group. The name is taken from a part of the long series of nonsense syllables in the doo-wop hit song "Get a Job", originally recorded in 1957 by the Silhouettes.




Bup-bup-bup-bup, ba-dup-bup-bup-bup-bup

She was afraid to come out of the locker
She was as nervous as she could be
She was afraid to come out of the locker
She was afraid that somebody would see

Two, three, four - tell the people what she wore

It was an itsy bitsy teenie weenie yellow polka dot bikini
That she wore for the first time today
An itsy bitsy teenie weenie yellow polka dot bikini
So in the locker she wanted to stay

Two, three, four - stick around, we'll tell you more

Bup-bup-bup-bup, ba-dup-bup-bup-bup-bup

She was afraid to come out in the open (ba-da-dup)
And so a blanket around her, she wore (ba-da-dup)
She was afraid to come out in the open (ba-da-dup)
And so she sat bundled up on the shore

Two, three, four, tell the people what she wore

It was an itsy bitsy teenie weenie yellow polka dot bikini
That she wore for the first time today
An itsy bitsy teenie weenie yellow polka dot bikini
So in the blanket she wanted to stay

Two, three, four - stick around, we'll tell you more

Bup-bup-bup-bup, ba-dup-bup-bup-bup-bup

Now she's afraid to come out of the water (ba-da-dup)
And I wonder what she's gonna do (ba-da-dup)
Yes, she's afraid to come out of the water (ba-da-dup)
And now the poor little girl's turning blue

Two, three, four, tell the people what she wore

It was an itsy bitsy teenie weenie yellow polka dot bikini
That she wore for the first time today
An itsy bitsy teenie weenie yellow polka dot bikini
So in the water she wanted to stay

From the locker to the blanket
From the blanket to the shore
From the shore to the water
Guess there isn't anymore
