An Oldie From "Your Hit Parade"

Green Door

Midnight, one more night without sleeping
Watching, 'til the morning comes creeping
Green door, what's that secret you're keeping

There's an old piano and they play it hot
Behind the green door
Don't know what they're doing but they laugh alot
Behind the green door
I wish they'd let me in so I could find out what's
Behind the green door

Knocked once, tried to tell them I'd been there
Door slam, hospitality's thin there
Wonder, just what's going on in there

I saw an eye ball peeping through a smoky cloud
Behind the green door
When I said Joe sent me someone laughed out loud
Behind the green door
All I wanna do is join the happy crowd
Behind the green door

Midnight, one more night without sleeping
Watching, 'til the morning comes creeping
Green door, what's that secret you're keeping
Green door, what's that secret you're keeping

Green Door.

From the show "Your Hit Parade". Weekly musical show from the " 50's " starring:

Dorothy Collins
Snooky Lanson
Gisele MacKenzie

The show was sponsored by Lucky Strike - LSMFT
Lucky Strike Means Fine Tobacco

Lucky Strike was also one of the strongest cigarettes of the time; I know from experience.

Hope you enjoyed this blast from the past.

Yeah, this is (was) my world and you are welcome to it - minus the cigarettes.
