What you say, girl, you see what is wrong?
You must be joking, you was led along

But the butler, the baker, the laughing cavalier
Will tell me now who's been sleeping here

I want to know

Tell me, baby, who's been sleeping...

What you say, girl, who'd you see that night?
I was doing, doing something right

Oh the soldier, the sailor and then there's the three musketeers
Yes, they'll tell me now who's been sleeping here

Did I ever tell you I want to know?

Hey baby, who's been sleeping...

Don't you look like, like a Goldilocks
There must be somewhere, somewhere you can stop

Yes there's the noiseless old newsboy, the old British brigadier
But you'll tell me now who's been sleeping here

Who's been eating, eating off my plate?
Who will tell me? Who'll investigate?

There's the sergeants, the soldiers, the cruel old grenadier
But they'll tell me now who's been sleeping here

Cause I want to know who's been sleeping right here
Was it your mummy, your daddy? Who's been sleeping here?
Was it your auntie, your uncle? Who's been sleeping here?
Was it your boyfriend, your girlfriend? Who's been sleeping here?
All right
