Friday afternoon
Couldn't come too soon
I'll be heading out the building
Just whistling a tune
So like a tried to tell you
Once or twice before
If I'm already gone
Leave me a note outside the door.
Delivery man
Always seem to catch me in a rush
And I'm bristling with energy
And wishing that he'd hush
I don't wanna sign nothin',
Don't care who it's for,
Just forget ya saw me
Leave the package outside the door.
Oooo baby when I'm sometimes feelin' low
I don't look at nobody, don't even say hello,
I guess I left my best side at the bedside again
And I may never raise a smile till I see you again.
Driving up to meet you
It's feeling like a dream
I'm going through the red lights,
Stopping at the green
I better get a handle, better get a grip
Before I'm rollin' down my window
To a cop outside the door.
Oooo baby now don't be too surprised
If you ever see my bad side, the one I try to hide,
I know you're gonna find it, the question's only when
But I may never raise a smile if I don't see you again.
Straight ahead
I see your place shining in the night
I drive a little faster
Now I'm feeling alright
Pull up a little closer
Couldn't ask for more
There's an empty parking space
For me outside the door.
Now you'll be relaxing
Slippers on the floor
A cup of tea in hand
Watching channel four
& then you'll hear my knock
Like so many times before
And there you'll find me waiting for you
Outside the door.
