"Knock Three Times" as written by and Larry Russell/levine Brown....
Autumn leaves blowing across my floor
Windows broken out by the mean kids who live next door
And there she is
Well not her exactly but the box she likes to sleep in
She was so cute in a skinny kinda way.

And they say,
Knock three times on your coffin if you want my love
Twice on the pipe is the answer, answer is no

She put with all the taunts all the nasty things they'd say
She'd smile and pretend to ignore them but she stored it all away
Don't blame me, don't blame me
They drove her â??round the bend.
She was so cute in a â??why-don't-you-get-out-and-see-the-sun' kinda way

And they say,
Knock three times on your coffin if you want my love
Twice on the pipe is the answer, answer is no, no, no

The world grew dark
Insane men ruled
Our stomachs kept on grumbling
But we had fun
We danced a lot if you don't count all that stumbling.
She was so cute in a â??why-don't-you-put-some-on-meat-on-those-bones' kinda way, kinda way

Kinda waste not much than the mice
And skeletons that run across my floor
The mice and skeletons that dance across my floor

Knock three times on your coffin if you want my love
Twice on the pipe is the answer, answer is no, no, no

Knock three times on your coffin if you want my love
Twice on the pipe is the answer, answer is no

Knock three times
Knock three times

    General CommentThis song is simply about the singer's lover, who happens to be dead. The singer seems either oblivious or indifferent to that fact.

    My OpinionThe first thing I thought of was that she was a vampire. She's thin and pale, and rejected in society (the kids threw stones through her window, and drove her out). She sleeps in a coffin. I dunno. but what i don't understand is why the world went dark and insane men ruled. and they keep making references to food...?
