Oh, you're gonna see your sheba do the shimmy-shake... And all that jazz. Oh, she's gonna shimmy till her garters break... And all that jazz. Show her where to park her girdle. Oh, her mother's blood'll curdle if she'd hear her baby's queer for All ...
When Roxie is dancing with a group of men in the "Roxie Hart" number she walks forward surrounded by men then the camera switches angles and the man on her right is suddenly on her left.
