Hey now honey
You got to face the floor
You headed for the heart
But you couldn't find the door, could you?
Could you?

Well, I'm standing in the sun
But I'm living in the rain
I got to get a-whirlin' like a human hurricane over you
Over you

Now you're looking like a fox on the run
And you're faster than a shot from a gun
I'm pointing at you, oh you
Talking 'bout you, hey you

I thought we had love in store
You keep on knockin' on every door
Babe, I've seen it all before
You keep on knockin' on every door
Ain't no lovin' you ignore
You keep on knockin' on every door
Keep keep knock knockin' on every door
You keep on knockin' on every door

Hey now honey
Time is all you've spent
You moved into the bed
But you couldn't pay the rent, could you?
Could you?

In the twinkle of an eye
You electrify
I got to get a-shootin' like a rocket in the sky, bye bye
Goodbye

Now you're burning like you're hot on the scene
Don't you love to steal a part of my dream?
I'm looking at you, oh you
Talking 'bout you, yea you

I thought we had love in store
You keep on knockin' on every door
Babe, I've seen it all before
You keep on knockin' on every door
Ain't no lovin' you ignore
You keep on knockin' on every door
Keep keep knock knockin' on every door
You keep on knockin' on every door

I thought we used to have love in store
You keep knock knockin' on every door
Hey babe, don't run around here no more
You keep on knockin' on every door
Ain't no sugar you ignore
You keep on knockin' on every door
Keep keep knock knockin' on every door
You keep on knockin' on every door

You'd better learn your lesson now...
