[G]He whistles timeless t[Am]unes as he [Bm]saunters [Am]down the street

[Am]But in the middle of the [E]night
[Am]He steals through your [E]garden
[Bm]Gives your h[F#]osiery a fright
And [Bm]doesn't say [F#]pardon.
As [Am]soft as a [E]breeze
With an [Am]arm full of [E]underwear
On his [Bm]hands and [F#]knees
Dreams [Bm]about the [F#]knicker scare.
