"Creeping Up the Backstairs" as written by and John Lawler....
She said "I'm Rosy"
I said "I thought you were Lucy"
She said "no Rosy, I told you so!"
Was here with your sister
But she's going out the back
I wanna dance and have fun y'know
Of all the shitty little places
I meet you it's here and I'm freaking out
I heard you got a brand new name
Selling E's in the dark
But hey it's nothing to shout about

Don't just say yes to tease me
Do your utmost to please me
I don't mean to be sleazy
Being you can't be easy

When you're creeping up the backstairs
Mother's nightmares
Falling in the front door - my, my
Climbing in the window
Get dressed, let's go
Take your brother's car keys - bye bye

See your yellow fingers
And your crucifix bones
All covered in cellophane
Was there when your best friend said
"Sweetheart, I'm just here to get drunk again"
I wouldn't move if I was you, wouldn't want to get caught
When the lights go out she said
"You think you're so special," I said
"Sunshine I'm just bored I'm just checkin' out."

Don't just say yes to tease me
Do your utmost to please me
I don't mean to be sleazy
Being you can't be easy

When you're creeping up the backstairs
Mother's nightmares
Falling in the front door my my
Climbing in your window
Get dressed, let's go
Take your brother's car keys
Bye bye

Don't just say yes to tease me
Do your utmost to please me
I don't mean to be sleazy
Being you can't be easy

When you're creeping up the backstairs
Mother's nightmares
Falling in the front door my my
Climbing in the window
Get dressed let's go
Take your brother's car key
Bye bye

Creeping up the backstairs
Mother's nightmares
Falling in the front door my my
Climbing in the window
Get dressed let's go
Take your brother's car key
Bye bye

    General CommentGreat song, about basically getting away and doing the things people don´t like their kids talking about. Fratellis are new to my ears and they are welcome there.
