Fashion in Song – Sex Is In The Heel from Kinky Boots (2013)

The sex is in the heel even if you break it
The sex is in the heel, honey you can’t fake it
Jack it up ’cause I’m no flat tire
Mack it up six inches higher
The sex is in the heel so just embrace itFrom London to Milan
Stilettos are an ism
In red and neon life
Gimme Jimmy Choo, Choo, Choo, Choo, Choo, shoes
New York, Paris, Hong Kong
Live it like an ism
Seduction amplified
The heel is the transmission Asserting actual scientific reason
Heels tense the leg and the hindquarter region
Lifting the rear and making it appear
Pert and ready for mating seasonThat’s the scientific view. But you know what I say?
The sex is in the heel
Fierce as you can make it
The sex is the appeal
Kinky boys can shake itPump it up
Pump it up
Till it’s ostentatious
Funk it up, Funk it up
It’s contagious
The sex is in the heel so just embrace itFrom London to Milan
Feed that chic hot feeling
In red and neon life
Won’t go nowhere without
M-m-my Manolos
New York, Paris, Hong Kong
Stilettos leave ’em reeling
Seduction amplifiedThe heel should hit the ceiling
The heel should hit the
The heel should hit the ceilingFrom London to Milan
Stilettos are an ism
In red and neon life
Gotta lotta p-p-p-p-p-p-Prada
New York, Paris, Hong Kong
Live it like an ism
Seduction amplified
The heel is the transmissionThese are brilliant. I’d wear any one of them.You are not our niche market.There are some very interesting ideas here.They’re all stiletto heels. It’s physically impossible to make a
Stiletto that can bear the weight of a full-grown man.Not so fast.If we could mold the steel
One piece from ball to heel
We’d underpin it, and remake it
So not even Don could break it.Sorry? I said…We’d underpin it, and remake it
So not even Don could break it.Yeah? You think? We can do it. We can do it. We can do it! From London to Milan
Stilettos are an ism
In red and neon life
Gimme big red boo, boo, boo, boo, boo, boo, boots
