Lyrics: Brick House

Chorus:
She's a brick----house
Mighty mighty, just lettin' it all hang out
She's a brick----house
The lady's stacked and that's a fact,
ain't holding nothing back.

She's a brick----house
She's the one, the only one,
who's built like a amazon
We're together everybody knows,
and here's how the story goes.

Verse:
1. She knows she got everything
a woman needs to get a man, yeah.
How can she use, the things she use
36-24-36, what a winning hand!

(Chorus)

Verse:
2. The clothes she wears, the sexy ways,
make an old man wish for younger days
She knows she's built and knows how to please
Sure enough to knock a man to his knees

(Chorus)

Bridge:
Shake it down, shake it down now (repeat)

Random facts: Brickhouse marks Kurt's first successful year as a professional
skater, and was single-handedly responsible for the conversion of a
legion of fans to Kurt's skating. Fast, funky, with great dancing and
a lot of personality, Brickhouse helped Kurt win his first World Pro
championship in 1995. Fans will never forget Kurt's costume - white
satiny shirt over tight shiny blue pants ("Smile Charleston, you can
see your reflection in his pants!" - announcer, Fox Rock 'n Roll
Championships). Brickhouse probably also wins the award for the
program most often attributed to the wrong choreographer. Many fans
think that Sandra Bezic created the choreography, when in reality it
was Michael Seibert and Clarence Ford. Kurt revived the program in
2005 for the Marshalls Figure Skating Showcase, where he acted as
on-ice interviewer and host for most of the audience-voted show, and
then came out to do an exhibition of his own. For this performance,
he dubbed his own "thoughts" over the music, providing for a funny
soundtrack to the classic program.
