Well, you should see Polythene Pam,
She's so good looking but she looks like a man.
Well, you should see her in drag,
Dressed in her polythene bag.
Yes, you should see Polythene Pam.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.

Get a dose of her in jackboots and kilt.
She's killer diller when she's dressed to the hilt.
She's the kind of a girl that makes the "News of the World."
Yes, you could say she was attractively built.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
