Hurry on down to my house, honey
Ain't nobody home but me
Hurry on down to my house, baby
Oh, I'm blue as I can be

I love you, you love me
A-hurry through the alley
So the neighbors don't see
Hurry on down to my house, honey
Ain't nobody home but me, oh

Hurry on down to my house, baby
Ain't nobody home but me
Hurry on down to my house, baby
I'm blue as I can be

Oh, blue when the clock a-went
Tick, tock, tick
Oh come on, honey, ah, quick, quick, quick
Aww, hurry on down to my house, baby
Ain't nobody home but me

Say, hurry, hurry, a-nobody's home
Hurry on down, baby
I'm blue as I can be
Oh, please, come down
Just as soon as you can
If you don't come down
I got to call Sam
You know the man is crazy about me
Ain't nobody home but me, ow

Well, what's goin' on with the three of yous?
Come on, come on, make it snappy
Come on, come on, work out, work out
Go, babe, get down, get down
Oh Lord! Nobody's home

Say, hurry on down to my house, baby
Ain't nobody home
A-haul it down, drag it down
Any way to get it down
I'm blue as I can be
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
Come on, honey, you must, you must
Hurry on down to my house, baby
Ain't nobody home but me

Hurry, hurry, nobody's home
Haul it down and drag it down
You know I can't stand to be alone
Operator, get me hillside, 409
A-don't stop ringin'
Till you get that baby's line
He's gonna haul it down
Ain't nobody home, but, you believe it
There's nobody home but me
