Lyrics

[Intro] Woodwork squeaks and out come the freaks Woodwork squeaks and out come the freaks Woodwork squeaks and out come the freaks Woodwork squeaks and out come the freaks When the sun comes down, they hit the streets In the bars, they try to meet Some other stranger to ease the pain Of living alone 'til it drives 'em insane The woodwork squeaks and out come the freaks Yeah, the woodwork squeaks and out come the freaks [Chorus] Woodwork squeaks and out come the freaks Woodwork squeaks and out come the freaks [Verse 1] Like little Michael on his motorcycle With leather pants and a leather brain He ain't never been the same since Vietnam Keeps his heart locked up in a vest And his eyes inside his shoes Doesn't ever want to lose them in a fight Never know what might go down tonight [Chorus] Woodwork squeaks and out come the freaks Woodwork squeaks and out come the freaks [Verse 2] Open the door and there’s Suzanne She eats her breakfast from the pan She never even burns her tongue And someday she’d like to get hung up on a millionaire She don’t even care If he ain’t got no hair She says, “Long as he signs the checks I figure what the heck I’ll get him a toupee" What more can you say? [Chorus] Woodwork squeaks and out come the freaks (Ha ha ha ha) Woodwork squeaks and out come the freaks [Verse 3] Detroit Johnny don’t wear no tie ’Cause he says it hurts his neck He’s got a chick from Ecuador tonight She wants to talk about the moon She says it used to be her friend But the doctors put an end to all of that "A part of me is lost for good Do you really understand?" "I do" says Johnny as he grabs her hand [Chorus] Woodwork squeaks and out come the freaks Woodwork squeaks and out come the freaks Woodwork squeaks and out come the freaks Woodwork squeaks and out come the freaks Woodwork squeaks and out come the freaks Woodwork squeaks and out come the freaks [Outro] Out come the freaks Out come the freaks Out come the freaks Out come the freaks Out come the freaks Out come the freaks Out come the freaks Out come the freaks Out come the freaks Out come the freaks Out come the freaks Out come the freaks Out come the freaks
