On a Lighter Note

I should emphasise that the title of the previous post did not refer to the porn film with Marilyn Chambers, or to the music of Flogging Molly, but to a song of my childhood, sung by Jim Lowe (probably a drug song, or maybe dating from Alcohol Prohibition, but who knew in 1957?)

one more night without sleepin' -
till the morning comes creepin'.
Green door
what's that secret you're keepin'?

There's an old piano and they play it hot behind the green door
Don't know what they're doin'
But they laugh a lot behind the green door.
Wish they'd let me in
So I could find out what's behind the green door.

Knocked once
tried to tell 'em I'd been there
Door slammed
hospitality's thin there.
Wonder just what's goin' on in there.

Saw an eyeball peepin' through a smokey cloud
Behind the green door
When I said ”Joe sent me”
Someone laughed out loud behind the green door.
AII I want to do is join the happy crowd behind the green door.

Midnight, one more night without sleepin',
Watchin' till the mornin' comes creepin'.
Green door, what's that secret you're keepin?
(Coda:)Green door, what's that secret you're keepin?
Green door!

Oh and not Cellar Door, either. (well, maybe)
