LyricsEdit

Frankie Lane, he was singing "Jezebel"
I pinned an iron cross to my lapel
I walked up to the tallest and the blondest girl
I said, look, you don't know me now, but very soon you will
So won't you let me see
I said won't you let me see
I said won't you let me see
Your naked body

Just dance me to the dark side of the gym
Chances are I'll let you do most anything
She said I know you're hungry, I can hear it in your voice
And there are many parts of me to touch, you have your choice
But no you cannot see
She said no you cannot see
She said no you cannot see
My naked body

So we're dancing close, the band is playing "Stardust"
Balloons and paper streamers, they're floating down on us
She said you've got a minute left to fall in love
In solemn moments such as this I have put my trust
And all my faith to see
I said all my faith to see
I said all my faith to see
Her naked body
