Knock Three Times

Words & Music:

Tony Orlando and Dawn


D                            A

Hey girl, what ya doin' down there?


Dancin' alone every night while I live right above you

I can hear your music playin'.  I can feel your body swayin'

G           A          D                     D7

One floor below me you don't even know me, I love you.



                G                                       D

Oh, my darling, knock three times on the ceiling if you want me.

A                 D      D7        G   D

Twice on the pipe if the answer is no, oh, my sweetness

(Knock, knock, knock!) Means you'll meet me in the hallway

Mmm, twice on the pipe (clink, clink) means you ain't gonna show


If you look out your window tonight.

Pull in the string with the note that's attached to my heart.

Read how many times I saw you.  How in my silence I adored you.

And only in my dreams did that wall between us come apart.





I can hear your music playin', I can feel your body swayin'.

One floor below me you don't even know me, I love you.
