Late at night when the kids are low
No one hears my slippered toe
My slippered toe, my slippered toe
It's up to the roof, oh they do not know
Leaves show their pale white underside
Tar paper flaps like it's keeping time
And the first raindrop, and the second raindrop
Down they come and they will not stop
The rain just makes me thirsty
The rain just makes me want it bad
The rain just makes me thirsty
And there's a dog out there
Howling worse than me
And his chain's pulled taut
And he can't break free
Am I not a special catch?
In my wet bathrobe without its sash
Without its sash, without its sash
Come on over and we'll have a laugh
I fool myself that I'll catch a glimpse
Of you beneath the satellite dish
When the kids are set and the laundry's piled
It's up to the roof where things get wild
And the cop cars come
With their wipers fast
And their flashing lights
I want in my hands
If I can't have you, I don't want nobody baby
