There are ladies, illegal X's Mona Lisa's, well connected
They may be shady, English roses Blue blooded, turn up noses
Money talks, see what it catches Postage paid, no strings attached
She's a honey, she's a tramp Roaring twenties, molls and vamps
[Chorus] Wrap her up, I'll take her home with me Wrap her up, she is all I need Wrap her up, I only got one chance Beast and beauties, but they all can dance
Wrap her up, I'll take her home with me Wrap her up, she is all I need Wrap her up, give her to me Wrap her up
Is she foreign, legs eleven Italian girls, take me to heaven
You pretty babies, from Paris France Crazy horses, love to dance
Give her to me, wrap her up I'll take her home with me, wrap her up She is all I need, wrap her up I only got one chance, beast and beauties But they all can dance
Wrap her up, I'll take her home with me Wrap her up, she is all I need Wrap her up, give her to me

The chorus of "Voulez-vous coucher avec moi ce soir" in "Lady Marmalade" is French for "Do you want to sleep with me tonight?" When Labelle performed it on television, they had to change it to "Voulez-vous danser avec moi ce soir" (Do you want to dance with me tonight?).
John Lennon's lead guitar work on Yoko Ono's "Walking On Thin Ice" proved to be his final creative act. It was upon their return home after completing laying down the track that Lennon was murdered by Mark David Chapman.
