Yeah, you've got satin shoes
Yeah, you've got plastic boots
You've all got cocaine eyes
Yeah, you've got speed freak jive now
Can't you hear me knocking on your window?
Can't you hear me knocking on your door?
Can't you hear me knocking down the dirty street?
Help me baby, I ain't no stranger
Can't you hear me knocking? Are you safe asleep?
Can't you hear me knocking, yeah, down the gas light street now?
Can't you hear me knocking? Yeah, throw me down the keys
All right now
Hear me ringing big bell toll
Hear me singing soft and low
I've been begging on my knees
I've been kicking, help me please
Hear me prowling - I'm going to take you down
Hear me growling - Yes, I've got a fight in me now, now, now, now
Hear me howling - I'm all around your street now
Hear me knocking - I'm all around your town
