Magnolia Electric Co – Werewolves Of London (Warren Zevon Cover) lyrics

I saw a werewolf walking with a Chinese menu in his hand

Through the streets of Soho in the rain

He was looking for a place called Lee Ho Fook's

For to get a big dish of beef chow mein

Ah-oo, Werewolves of London

You can hear him howling around your kitchen door

Better not let him in

Little old lady got mutilated late last night

Werewolves of London again

Ah-oo, Werewolves of London

He's the hairy-handed gent that ran amuck in Kent

Lately he's been overheard in Mayfair

Better stay away from him

He'll rip your lungs out Jim

Hah! I'd like to meet his tailor

Ah-oo, Werewolves of London

I saw Lon Chaney walking with the Queen

Doing the Werewolves of London

I saw Lon Chaney, Jr. walking with the Queen

Doing the Werewolves of London

Ah-oo, Werewolves of London

I saw a werewolf drinking a pina colada at Trader Vic's

And his hair was perfect

Draw blood
