How would you mind if I moved in next door to you?
And then would you mind if I held up your door for you?
And maybe in time I could knock on your door
And you could answer and I could say; hello my name is Fred

And you could say hello my name is Marianne or Catherine
I don’t care, I’m new; I’m Fred
And you could invite me in to see your place that’s a very beautiful bedspread
And your kitchen is like mine not blue but red instead

And would you mind if I asked you if you live alone?
Because I had heard voices when passing or was it just the phone?
And then you could tell me your boyfriend calls you everyday
And I would suggest that he must have a lot to say

How would you mind if I moved in next door to you?
And then would you mind if I held up your door for you?
And maybe in time I could knock on your door
And you could answer and I could say; hello my name is Fred

You can come over anytime, borrow sugar or drink some wine
I’ve been alone now for several years, just me
I’ve got a collection of classic movies; I listen to music too
I’ve got a tight schedule but I don’t do the things most folks do

I detect from your accent that you must come from another place?
Your complexion is perfect I swear it’s Gods good grace

In time you’ll be glad that I moved in next door to you
And given notice I`ll make enough dinner for two
Call me at work and youґll get right through

I will answer; and you could say;
Hello is that you Fred?
