Marcel lives in Wapping, the ducks are due his tapping
Marcel's got a houseboat on the Thames
There's grotesque decorations, eccentric demonstrations
Let's go down to Marcel's on the Thames

CHORUS:
Knock knock, sesame it's open, it's Alice in Wonderland
Marcel, Marcel
Can we come around, can we see you right away?
Can we come around? It's such a groovy day
Marcel, Marcel

Meet the oddest creatures with unfamiliar features
Greeks & Turks with clerks & lemon tyne
Men with long eyelashes & ladies with mustaches
On Marcel's creaking house, it's on the Thames

(chorus)

Gusters work for giving, the panda men are livin'
(repeat & fade):
Let's go down to Marcel's on the Thames
