  • Lyrics
  • I got the keys to view at number 22
    Behind my green door there's nothing to see
    Stone cold sober and sitting in silence, laid
    Back and looking for sympathy
    I like a girl who knows where she's bound
    I don't like girls who've been hanging around

    Hooks in you, hooks in me, hooks in the ceiling
    For that well hung feeling
    No big deal, no big sin, strung up on love I
    Got the hooks screwed in


    She's tied up she can't come to the phone
    You must have got your wires crossed 'cause she ain't home
    Knock on wood, you know I like that sound
    She never could keep her feet on the ground


    Right on the money got it wrapped up tight
    New ideas for the decor tonight
    Gonna make this house a preservation zone
    Gonna set her in concrete set her up on her ownWriter/s: SMITH DICKINSON
