(m. jagger/k. richards)

Yeah, you got satin shoes
Yeah, you got plastic boots
Yall got cocaine eyes
Yeah, you got speed-freak jive

Cant you hear me knockin on your window
Cant you hear me knockin on your door
Cant you hear me knockin down your dirty street, yeah

Help me baby, aint no stranger
Help me baby, aint no stranger
Help me baby, aint no stranger

Cant you hear me knockin, ahh, are you safe asleep?
Cant you hear me knockin, yeah, down the gas light street, now
Cant you hear me knockin, yeah, throw me down the keys
Alright now

Hear me ringing big bell tolls
Hear me singing soft and low
Ive been begging on my knees
Ive been kickin, help me please
Hear me prowlin
Im gonna take you down
Hear me growlin
Yeah, Ive got flatted feet now, now, now, now
Hear me howlin
And all, all around your street now
Hear me knockin
And all, all around your town
