Peter Frampton – The Lodger lyrics

The Lodger

One step two step close the door
All my records are on the floor
No time to myself it seems
People in my lounge hanging from the beams
No time to think cause the phone is ringing
Can't you see my guitar needs stringing
Then I'll play the songs I should be singing
Then I'll play the songs I should be singing

One step two step mind the light
Oh too late, anyway it was too bright
Your bed's too hard, well please use ours
I've always wanted to know how to sleep in cars
Don't be silly, it can't get chilly
We'll take a drive 'round Picadilly
All I need is time to put my clothes on
All I ask is time to put my clothes on

One step two step who's your friend?
Yes of course use the one at the end
Cause it's gone too far, we've started drawing lots
I feel like a platform tree, now the doc has give me shot
Now all change for the midnight movie
Grab my hand cause you might lose me
In the rush for those who try to use me
Now in the rush for those who try to use me
Yeah yeah no no no no
