I'm standing with you on your roof
looking at the chemical sky
All purple blue and oranges
some pigeons flying by
The traffic on Canal Street's so noisy
it's a shock
And someone's shooting fireworks or a gun
on the next block

An-an-and, I wanna HookyWooky with you
I wanna HookyWooky with you

The traffic's so noisy it's a shock
sounds like fireworks or a gun on the next block
Ah, HookyWooky with you

Your ex-lover Satchel is here from France
yet another ex
They gather about you like a Mother Superior
all of you still friends, but -
None of my old flames ever talk to me when things
end for me they end
They take your pants, your money, your name
but the song still remains

An-an-and, I wanna HookyWooky with you
Ah-ha-ha-ha, I wanna HookyWooky with you

Then they take your pants, your money, your name
but the song still remains, sayin' -
I wanna HookyWooky with you

You're so civilized it hurts
I guess I could learn a lot, ha-ha...
About people, plants and relationships
how not to get hurt a lot
And each lover I meet up your roof
I wouldn't want to throw him off, mmmmm..
Into the chemical sky, down into the streets to die
under the wheels of a car on Canal Street
And each lover I meet up on your roof
I wouldn't want to throw him off, mmmmm..
Into the chemical sky
under the wheels of a car to die on Canal street

Ah-ah-hi, I wanna, ah, HookyWooky with you
ah-huh, huh-huh-huh-ah
I wanna HookyWooky with you

I wouldn't want to throw him off into the chemical sky
down into the streets to die
Under the wheels of a car on Canal street

Under the wheels of a car on Canal Street
Under the wheels of a car on Canal Street
HookyWooky
Under the wheels of a car on Canal Street
HookyWooky
Under the wheels of a car on Canal Street
Under the wheels of a car on Canal Street
Hooky-Hooky-Hooky-Wooky
(Under the wheels of a car on Canal Street)
(Under the wheels of a car on Canal Street)
(Under the wheels of a car on Canal Street)
(Under the wheels of a car on Canal Street)
