Chorus:
I’m on the outside, lookin’ in
But I like it this way.
Here on the outside, lookin’ in
I see the games that they play.
I’m on the outside, lookin’ in
But I don’t really care
Here on the outside, lookin’ in
‘Long as I get my share
You know that I’ll take my share...

When it’s late at night
They blow out the light
And although they might be sleepin’
If they hear a sound
I may be around
And they know I could be creepin’, creepin’ creepin
They must be aware
If they think I’m there,
It’s a very scary feelin’!
Lyin’ in their beds,
Running through their heads
Is one thought - what is he stealin’?

Chorus

I can hear them tell I’m a hound of hell
As they catch the smell of danger
As I’m comin’ here
I can taste their fear
Of the dark and deadly stranger.

They know who I am
I don’t give a damn
I could lead ev’ry lamb to the slaughter
So be on your guard
For my calling card
And be sure - to lock up your daughters

They keep us outside lookin’ in
My sister and me
And if we’re outside lookin’ in
That’s the way it will be
We’re on the outside lookin’ in
But we don’t really care
Here on the outside, lookin’ in
‘Long as we get our share
You know that we’ll take our share...

We’re on the outside lookin’ in
We’re on the outside lookin’ in
We’re on the outside lookin’ in
