The Lyrics

I don't want to stand here, just waiting
Waiting for you
'cause I know I've got better, much better
Better things to do
But I read the sign here
The sign on your door
So I'm standing, it's boring
And I think you're ignoring
It says "Knock...Knock
And wait"

I'm not so impatient, or angry
Well, I'm not angry yet
And my feet I'm tapping, tap tapping
So please do not forget
All this waiting is wearing, wearing
My patience wearing thin
It's like watching ice thawing
Just waiting for you is boring
The sign says knock, knock and wait
I'm waiting, oooh oo-oo-oo-oo-oooh
Waiting, oooh oo-oo-oo-oo-oooh

Ain't no secret about it,
It's you I'm waiting for
And you see to it
I wait even more
Just one more moment here,
I'll knock down that door
It's like watching ice thawing
Just waiting for you is boring
The sign says knock, knock and wait
I'm waiting, oooh oo-oo-oo-oo-oooh

Knock, knock, knock and wait
Knock, knock, knock and wait
It said knock and wait
So I gotta knock
And wait
