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...
