Sing-along Friday

(vocabulary at the bottom)


LYRICS

Who can it be knocking at my door?

Go 'way, don't come 'round here no more.

Can't you see that it's late at night?

I'm very tired, and I'm not feeling right.

All I wish is to be alone

Stay away, don't you invade my home.

Best off if you hang outside

Don't come in - I'll only run and hide.Who can it be now?

Who can it be now?

Who can it be now?

Who can it be now?


Who can it be knocking at my door?

Make no sound, tip-toe across the floor.

If he hears, he'll knock all day

I'll be trapped, and here I'll have to stay.

I've done no harm, I keep to myself

There's nothing wrong with my state of mental health.

I like it here with my childhood friend

Here they come, those feelings again!Who can it be now?

Who can it be now?

Who can it be now?

Who can it be now?


Is it the man come to take me away?

Why do they follow me?

It's not the future that I can see

It's just my fantasy

Oh... Who can it be now?

Oh... Who can it... Who can it...

Yeah yeah yeah
