Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka-Dot Bikini`


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

Many years ago, Joanne, a student of mine came into class and presented this question;

"Is it a yellow bikini with polka-dots or a bikini with yellow polka-dots?"

I must confess, it's a question that pops into my head everytime I hear the song and till now, I still do not have an answer. Anybody out there to help me out?

Haha!

Let me see... If it was a yellow bikini with polka dots, it should be "polka-dotted yellow bikini".
If it was a bikini with yellow polka dots, they should say, "yellow polka-dotS/polka-dotted bikini".

I think we will never know. :P The way the words are arranged is too vague.

And we will never know because I believe the original writer is dead.
