Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka-dot Bikini Lyrics
Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka-Dot Bikini
Brian Hyland
Written by Paul Vance and Lee Pockriss

Peaked at # 1 in 1960
Co-songwriter Paul Vance was inspired to write this song after seeing his 2-year old daughter
Paula play at the beach in her bathing suit. Later featured in the 1962 comedy film One, Two,
Three, starring Jimmy Cagney & Arlene Francis, with the Russians using the song to try to
torture
a suspected spy.

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 teenie weenie yellow polka-dot bikini
So in the locker she wanted to stay
(Two, three, four, stick around we'll tell ya more)

She was afraid to come out in the open
And so a blanket around her she wore
She was afraid to come out in the open
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 teenie weenie yellow polka-dot bikini
So in the blanket she wanted to stay
(Two, three, four, stick around we'll tell ya more)

Now she's afraid to come of the water
And I wonder what she's gonna do
Now she's afraid to come out of the water
And the poor little girl's turnin' 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 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 any more
