A Fine Parody, I Don't Think

One of my many shortcomings as a parodist is that I start with an idea, which is knocked into a cocked hat along about bar 9, and the lyric goes where it listeth. By the time I reach the end, I can't even remember what the original idea was. Here, for what it's worth, is a take on Jerome Kern's A Fine Romance:

A fine pole dance,
With no strippin'!
A fine pole dance—
She's no pippin:
She's timid, awkward,
Under-rehearsed and nervous.
(She ought to sue that
Aptitude-testing service.)

She snorts loudly,
But can't giggle;
Her boobs pucker—
Her lips jiggle.
So if you think you've even the slightest chance
Getting into her pants—
Tell her your name is Lance.

If there's no strippin', how do you know that her lips jiggle?
