"I Knock At The Door"

Welcome signs spreads dah floor_
And here I stand just before.
There's Happy people inside therein_
It's soon to open_ don't know when.

Peeping through dah peephole
waving to dah crowd_
doing my best_ not ta get loud.

I keep-a ringing dah doorbell_
could give a shout 'er yell;
darn things' a working_
as far as I give tell.

Welcome signs spreads dah floor_
And here I stand just before.
There's Happy people inside therein_
It's soon to open_ don't know when.

Seeing through dah wind-a and whaddaya know_
They's doing the limbo and dah dirty disco.
Musics' a playing_ They's a dancing the jig
Ole man Thomas' bout to lose his wig.

There's and ole friend o mine.
chugg-in on tasty moon shine_
while sipping Pete's brandy wine.
N starr-in at dah pretties n fine

Welcome signs spreads dah floor_
And here I stand just before.
There's Happy people inside therein_
It's soon to open_ don't know when.

Aww smokes alive_ They got Toro cigars_
see-em plucking ashes in dah ole fruit jar_
n havin knee slappin funnin at dah end of dah bar.
Oh darnit to devil_ my unlucky stars

cain't they hear me bangin so_
won't be long_ but I don't know.
its been a while now just a bit_
lets turn the knob or jiggle it.

Welcome signs spreads dah floor_
And here I stand just before.
There's Happy people inside therein_
It's soon to open_ don't know when.

porch light shi-nin clean in my face_
whats dah password ta-git in dis place?
I can do dah tap, dah twist and dah flip_
can I pleeease come in for just a sip.

Guard dogs a barkin all dis time_
Inclined to become friends o mine.
Open up _if you'd be so kind
Or is membership here's by strange design?

Welcome signs spreads dah floor_
And here I stand just before.
Why I keep a knocking_ just what for?
Cuz whatever I do_ they just ignore.
