There's raccoon's running down the driveway
The moon's been playing hide and seek between the window panes
One shimmied the lid off the trash can
And it went a-rolling and a-tumbling to the pavement
He took a head long dive into the garbage
The other hissed: shhhhh, somebody's comin'
There's rock n' roll playing on the tape deck
She told her husband she was going for some cigarettes
You know a woman like that ain't hard to crack
Just takes a little bit of wine and the seats are laid back
She hears a car drive by and circle round
She ducks her head down: shhhhh, somebody's comin'
There's always footsteps coming down the hall
Headlights on the gravel or a creak in the door
You better tip-toe when you're coming down the stairs
Hold your breath and say a prayer
There's bass pounding through the bathroom wall
And he's standing in a stall with a rubber jaw
He's knows there's no such thing as a cheap thrill
As he rolls up his last five dollar bill
Could be his guts could be the cane
The voice in his head screams: shhhh, somebody's comin'
There's a lantern swinging in the back yard
He makes his living with a gun and a crow bar
Been caught once with his hand in the cookie jar
The Judge said "next time that hammer's gonna fall hard"
Gotta know when to shoot and when to start running
Once you hear the words: shhhh, somebody's comin'
