This song is all about a day in the life of a hotel-room attendant

I knock three times
Knock, knock, knock
"Housekeeping!"
I knock three more times
Knock, knock, knock
"Housekeeping!"
I knock three more times
Knock, knock, knock
"Housekeeping!"
If nobody's in the room, then I go inside and clean
I pick up garbage
Make the beds
Dust
Vacuum the floor
Clean the bathroom, hang dry towels, mop
And shut the door
Then I go to the next room and do it all again, except a little bit slower, 'cause I'm tired by then

I knock three times
Knock, knock, knock
"Housekeeping!"
I knock three more times
Knock, knock, knock
"Housekeeping!"
I knock three more times
Knock, knock, knock
"Housekeeping!"
If nobody's in the room, then I go inside and clean
I pick up garbage
Make the beds
Dust
Vacuum the floor
Clean the bathroom, hang dry towels, mop
And shut the door
Then I go to the next room and do it all again, except a little bit slower, 'cause I'm tired by then

I knock three times
Knock, knock, knock
"Housekeeping!"
I knock three more times
Knock, knock, knock
"Housekeeping!"
I knock three more times
Knock, knock, knock
"Housekeeping!"
If nobody's in the room, then I go inside and clean
I pick up garbage
Make the beds
Dust
Vacuum the floor
Clean the bathroom, hang dry towels, mop
And shut the door
Then I go to the next room and do it all again, except a little bit slower, 'cause I'm tired by then

I knock three times
Knock, knock, knock
"Housekeeping!"
I knock three more times
Knock, knock, knock
"Housekeeping!"
I knock three more times
Knock, knock, knock
"Housekeeping!"
If nobody's in the room, then I go inside and clean
I pick up garbage
Make the beds
Dust
Vacuum the floor
Clean the bathroom, hang dry towels, mop
And shut the door
Then I go to the next room and do it all again, except a little bit slower, 'cause I'm tired by then

I knock three times
Knock, knock, knock
"Housekeeping!"
I knock three more times
Knock, knock, knock
"Housekeeping!"
I knock three more times
Knock, knock, knock
"Housekeeping!"
If nobody's in the room, then I go inside and clean
I pick up garbage
Make the beds
Dust
Vacuum the floor
Clean the bathroom, hang dry towels, mop
And shut the door
Then I go to the next room and do it all again, except a little bit slower, 'cause I'm tired by then

I knock three times
Knock, knock, knock
"Housekeeping!"
I knock three more times
Knock, knock, knock
"Housekeeping!"
I knock three more times
Knock, knock, knock
"Housekeeping!"
If nobody's in the room, then I go inside and clean
