Stray Cats – Twenty Flight Rock lyrics

Ooh, well I got a gal with a record machine when it comes to rockin' she' s a queen
We love to dance on Saturday night, all alone I can hold her tight
But she' s lives on the 20thfloor uptown, the elevator' s broken down.

So I walk 1, 2 flight, 3 flight, 4. 5, 6, 7 flight, 8 flight more
Up on the 12thfloor startin' to drag, 15thfloor I' m a-ready to sag
Get to the top, I' m too tired to rock

Well she calls me up on the telephone says, "Come on over, honey. I' m all alone"
I said "Baby, you' re mighty sweet. But I' m in bed with achin' feet"
This went on for a couple o' days, but I couldn' t stay away.

So I walk 1, 2 flight, 3 flight, 4. 5, 6, 7 flight, 8 flight more
Up on the 12thfloor startin' to drag, 15thfloor I' m a-ready to sag
Get to the top, I' m too tired to rock

"We havin' fun yet?"
"Woo!"
Well, they sent it to Chicago for repairs
Til it gets fixed I' m usin' the stairs
I hope they hurry before it' s too late. I want my baby too much to wait.
All this a-climbin' is getting' me down. They' ll find my corpse draped over a rail.

So I walk 1, 2 flight, 3 flight, 4. 5, 6, 7 flight, 8 flight more
Up on the 12thfloor startin' to drag, 15thfloor I' m a-ready to sag
Get to the top, I' m too tired to rock

"Hey!"
"Hah!"
"A-la-da-da-da-da-da-dow!"
"Crazy"

Ooh, I got a gal with a record machine when it comes to rockin' she' s a queen.
We love to dance on Saturday night. All alone I can hold her tight.
But she lives on the 20thfloor uptown. The elevator' s broken down.

So I walk 1, 2 flight, 3 flight, 4. 5, 6, 7 flight, 8 flight more
Up on the 12thfloor startin' to drag, 15thfloor I' m a-ready to sag
Get to the top, I' m too tired to rock

Well I walk 1, 2, flight 3 flight, 4. 5, 6, 7 flight, 8 flight more.
I' m on the stairs I' m a-startin to drag, 15thfloor I' m a-ready to sag.
Get to the top, I' m too tired to rock.
"Ho!"
