Song for a striptease

Song suggestions needed for a pseudo striptease!

I'm throwing a stagette tonight for a friend. The theme is woodsmen/lumberjacks and we have a surprise guest. My friend's brother-in-law flew in from South America this morning (he's there for work and wasn't supposed to make it for the wedding). He's dressing up as a woodsman and doing a striptease where he'll reveal his identity (rather than his junk). But we need a song, something hilarious and cheesy for him to dance to -- if it's thematically relevant, even better. Help us out! Suggest the most hilarious songs for a striptease you can think of!

The logdriver's waltz. Not very sleazy but thematically appropriate, even if old-timey.

There is only one: The Lumberjack Song!

The song starts at :40 or so. Dancing to it might be a tough one but it is certainly cheesy and hilarious.

That Fascinating Thing by the Squirrel Nut Zippers almost sounds like it was created in a lab for burlesque purposes.

Hey Big Spender is the classic. Not sure it works with lumberjacks.

Truly awful band Jackyl has a truly awful song called The Lumberjack that features a chainsaw.

Couldn't remember the name of the band that dortmunder just suggested, but it was the very first one that came to mind. Awful, awful, but spot on to a striptease.

Vaike, you beat me to it! However, there's still the penultimate: The Stripper.

Interesting digression: The composer of The Stripper also composed the theme for Little House on the Prairie.

"Cross Cut Saw Blues" - Good, slow strip.
"Forest For The Trees" - Everything's more fun with Huey.

Nthing Monty Python's The Lumberjack Song.

Let's all get along: start with the Python song, segue into the Jackyl.

I think the Lumberjack Song followed by Yakity Sax (the Benny Hill song) is the only way to go.

Put Another Log on the Fire.

That would be funny.
