The porn industry guests on the show strip and dance to the tune (not really all about playing a piano, of course) at the show's end. The song and the Robin Byrd Show attained a cult status in the early 1980s, but Times Square and the entertainment world have changed considerably since then. The show appears in cable often in re-runs, and many of the porn palaces mentioned are now gone.
Well my baby had a party the other night
The party was gettin' dead
I spied a piano in the corner
Looked at my baby and said
Baby let me bang your box, baby let me bang your box
Baby let me play your eighty-eight
I'm gonna bang 'til the whole house rocks
I've been playin' piano, large and small
But you've got the best piano of all
I banged everyone in the neighbourhood
Never banged one that sounds so good
I've got a shuffle, a back beat, a boogie woogie too
But when I play my jelly roll you won't know what to do
