  • I got the keys to view at number twenty-two
    Behind my green door there's nothing to see
    Is that a feature? What kind of creature
    Would hang around waiting for a guy like me?
    Stone cold sober, sitting in silence
    Laid back, 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
    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, she ain't home
    Knock on wood, you know I like that sound
    She never could keep her feet on the ground

    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
    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

    Hooks in you
    I've got those hooks in you
    Hooks in you, in you
    Hooks in you
    I've got those hooks in you
    Hooks in you, in you

    Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

    Right on the money, got it wrapped up tight
    Got new ideas for the décor tonight
    Gonna make this house a preservation zone
    Gonna set her in concrete, set her up on her own

    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
    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

    Hooks in you
    I've got those hooks in you
    Hooks in you
    Hooks in you
    I've got those hooks in you
    Hooks in you, in you
    I've got those
    Hooks in you Writer/s: Adrian Frederick Smith, Bruce Dickinson
