Cher mentions showing a little more and a little less as a metaphor to signify the partial nudity and suggestive dances that happen at the club. She also talks about people giving out money, as this is the purpose of the entertainment; to empty the pockets of its consumers. The singer paints a picture of the adventure and thrill of a fantasy world to both her audience and a town singer (Christina Aguilera) who moves to the city to become a star.

“Welcome to Burlesque” basically describes a place in the 2010 Steven Antin directed movie “Burlesque”. This place is a dazzling nightclub filled with dancers, and musicians performing numbers to their guests.
