"Knock on Wood" as written by Eddie Floyd and Steve Cropper....
I don't want to lose the good thing that I've got
If I do, I will surely, I will lose a lot

For your love is better
Than any love other I've know
It's like thunder, lightning
The way you love me is frightening
I better knock on wood
Baby

I'm not superstitious about you, but I can't take a chance
Got me spinning, baby, spinning in a trance
But your love is better
Than any other love I've known
It's like thunder, lightning
The way you love me is frightening
You better knock on wood

It's no secret that that woman fills my loving cup
She sees to it that I get enough
And her love is better
Than any other love I've known
It's like thunder It's like lightning
The way you love me is frightening
I better knock on wood
Baby

Aw, yeah
(Yes you better knock, knock, knock on wood) yes, I better
(Yes you better knock, knock, knock on wood) oh, knock on wood
(Yes you better knock, knock, knock on wood) you know I would, would
(Yes you better knock, knock, knock on wood) it's no secret
(Yes you better knock, knock, knock on wood) no, oh, better
(Yes you better knock, knock, knock on wood) hangin' above me
(Yes you better knock, knock, knock on wood) I can't leave her
(Yes you better knock, knock) oh no, baby

Knock on wood, whoo!

    General CommentObviously this song was just a song Bowie liked and so he performed it during the Diamond Dogs tour. Find this on the David Live album, you won't be disappointed.
