Lyrics

Well, I knocked down on your door, baby,

to see if you were at home.

Your shade was down, there wasn't even a sound

but something told me you weren't alone.


What in the world can a nasty dog do

but try to get next to you?


Don't laugh 'cause it ain't funny.

Look how it happened to me.

It could happen to you, you could be a fool too

and it'd leave you in misery.

I guess there's nothin' more a funky king can do

but to try to get next to you.
