KNOCK KNOCK KNOCK
Music and Lyrics by Samuel B. Lupowitz

Why you gotta knock, knock, knock on my door?
Honey, it's the middle of the night
What do you have to shout upstairs and cry for?
You're looking for your man
And you know this house ain't right, oh no

I can only guess what bull he threw you
You're a mess of tears and slurry speech
And I can tell that I'm not getting to you
When I shout "this ain't your room"
It doesn't seem to reach, hmm

But baby, (it's the middle of the night)
Don't make me (In the middle of the night)
Come down there

You know I know your boyfriend, he lives next door
I know because I hear you when you fight (every night)
And if I were you I'd kick him to the curb
But you're giving me the sense that you're higher than a kite, so right now

Baby (it's the middle of the night)
Don't make me (in the middle of the night)
Come down there

I know what you mean, he's done you wrong
He's sold out what the two of you had for a song
I don't want to shake you in your moment of doubt
But if you keep on knocking I will
Knock you out

Why you gotta knock, knock, knock so damn hard?
Maybe in the morning, you can make it right
Maybe, like, an Olive Garden gift card
A hand-scrawled apology
That's all you'd need to placate me

You're wailing so loud, I'm sure it's for real
He's made you a fool? Well, I'll make you a deal
You call up a cab, get off my welcome mat
I won't throw the door open and
Knock you flat

Why you gotta knock knock knock on my door?
Honey, it's the middle of the night
What do you have to shout upstairs and cry for?
You're looking for your man
And you know this house ain't right, oh no

But baby (it's the middle of the night)
Why you gotta make me (in the middle of the night)
Come down there (it's the middle of the night)
I gotta knock you out (in the middle of the night)
Gotta shove you out (it's the middle of the night)
When I come down there (in the middle of the night)
