I'm Gonna Knock On Your Door 2: 05
Eddie Hodges
(Aaron Schroeder, Sid Wayne)
Cacence Records Single #1397
Pop Chart #12 June 19, 1961

Intro Sounds: knocking on door, ringing on bell, tapping on window

I'm gonna knock on your door
Ring on your bell
Tap on your window, too
If you don't come out tonight, when the moon is bright
I'm gonna knock and ring and tap until you do

I'm gonna knock on your door (how-how)
Call out your name (how-how)
Wake up the town, you'll see (how-how)
I'm gonna hoo-hoot and howl like the lovesick owl
Until you say you're gonna come out with me

Hey little girl (how-how) this ain't no time to sleep
Let's count kisses 'stead of countin' sheep
How (how-how) how can I hold ya near
With you up there and me down here?

I'm gonna knock on your door
Ring on your bell, tap on your window, too
If you don't come out tonight when the moon is bright
I'm gonna knock and ring and tap until you do

(Instrumental and guitar & piano)

Hey little girl (hey little girl)
This ain't no time to sleep (how-how)
Let's count kisses 'stead of countin' sheep (how-how)
How (how-how) how can I hold ya near (how-how)
With you up there and me down here?

I'm gonna knock on your door
Ring on your bell, tap on your window, too
If you don't come out tonight, when the moon is bright
I'm gonna knock and ring and tap until you do

I'm gonna knock and ring and tap
And knock and ring and tap
And knock and ring and tap
And knock and ring until you do.
