The Green Door "Midnight one more night without sleepin' - Watchin' till the morning comes creepin'. Green door, what's that secret you're keepin'? There's an old piano and they play it hot behind the green door Don't know what they're doin', But they laugh a lot behind the green door. Wish they'd let me in so I could find out what's behind the green door".
