Lyrics
WOMAN'S VOICE:

Who's that knocking at my door?
Who's that knocking at my door?
Who's that knocking at my door?
Cried the fair young maiden.

MAN'S VOICE:

Oh, it's only me from across the sea.
Cried Barnacle Bill the Sailor.

WOMAN'S VOICE:

Why are you knocking at my door?
Why are you knocking at my door?
Why are you knocking at my door?
Cried the fair young maiden.

MAN'S VOICE:

'Cos I'm young enough, and ready and tough.
Cried Barnacle Bill the Sailor.
Will you take me to the dance?
To hell with the dance down with your pants.
You can sleep upon the floor.
I'll not sleep on the floor you dirty w____.
You can sleep upon the mat.
Oh, b_____ the mat you can't f*** that.
You can sleep upon the stairs.
Oh, f*** the stairs they haven't got hairs.
What's that running up my blouse?
It's only me mitt to grab yer t__.
You can sleep between my t__s.
Oh, b_____ your t__s they give me the s___s.

You can sleep between my thighs.
b_____ your thighs they're covered in flies.
You can sleep within my c___.
Oh, b_____ your c*** but I'll f*** for a stunt.
What's that running in and out?
It's only me c**k, it's as hard as a rock.

What's that running down my leg?
It's only me shot that missed yer t***.
What if my parents should find out?
We'll eat your ma and blow your pa.

What if my mother should disagree?
If yer ma'll agree we'll make it three.
What if we should get VD?
We'll pick the sores and f*** some more.

What if we should have a boy?
He'll play rugby and f*** like me.

What'll we do when the baby's born
We'll drown the b_____ and f*** for another.

I'll pick the lock with my ten-foot c**k.
What if we should go to prison?
I'll swing my b____ and knock down the walls.
