Locking doors
Spotless pores
Finding comfort in a total bore
The number four
Genealogical lore
Nothing feels good unless I've felt it before

The neighbors gay
He shouldn't be that way
I'm gonna treat him like a person
But not today
When I'm old and grey
And he's dying of AIDS
I'm gonna stop by his bed to remind him to pray

Melvin is locking doors
He makes everything a chore
And he don't really care no more
Melvin is locking doors

Nervous when my little woman friend makes me kinda wanna be a man again
Don't wanna bend
Better to offend
But I'll get pissed when she looks at other men

Melvin is locking doors
He makes everything a chore
And he don't really care no more
Melvin is locking doors

Locking doors
Salting sores
When one wimp winces we'll win this war
Show me some gore
Man I'm so hardcore
But it doesn't feel good unless I've felt it before
Nothing feels good unless I've felt it before

    General CommentChris Thile made this song up in one day, finding all the words that could rhyme with door. Inspired by the Jack Nicholson movie "As Good As It Gets", this song is about the main character Melvin and his OCD/homophobic tendencies. For a better understanding of this song, watch the movie.

    "Nothing feels good unless I've felt it before"

    this is in reference to his Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and how Melvin, typical of many OCD patients, is sometimes compelled to touch everything more than once.
