Lyrics


Who are you? Who, who, who, who?

Who are you? Who, who, who, who?

Who are you? Who, who, who, who?

Who are you? Who, who, who, who?


I woke up in a Soho doorway

A policeman knew my name

He said, "You can go sleep at home tonight

If you can get up and walk away."


I staggered back to the underground

And the breeze blew back my hair

I remember throwin' punches around

And preachin' from my chair


Well, who are you?

(Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)

I really wanna know

(Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)

Tell me, who are you?

(Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)

'Cause I really wanna know

(Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)


I took the tube back out of town

Back to the Rollin' Pin

I felt a little like a dying clown

With a streak of Rin Tin Tin


I stretched back and I hiccuped

And looked back on my busy day

Eleven hours in the Tin Pan

God, there's got to be another way


Well, who are you?

(who are you? Who, who, who, who?)

Oh, who are you?

(Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)

Come on tell me who are you?

(Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)

Alright who the fuck are you?

(Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)


Who are you?


Who are you? Who, who, who, who?

Who are you? Who, who, who, who?

Who are you? Who, who, who, who?

Who are you? Who, who, who, who?


I really wanna know

(Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)

I really wanna know

(Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)

Come on tell me who are you

(Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)

'Cause I really wanna know

(Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)


I know there's a place you walked

Where love falls from the trees

My heart is like a broken cup

I only feel right on my knees


I spit out like a sewer hole

Yet still receive your kiss

How can I measure up to anyone now

After such a love as this?


Well, who are you?

(Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)

Come on tell me who are you

(Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)

Oh, I really wanna know

(Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)

Tell me tell me who are you

(Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)


Come on come on

(Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)

Ah who the fuck are you?

(Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)

Who are you?

(Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)

Oh tell me who are you

(Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)


I really wanna know

Oh, I really wanna know

Come on tell me who are you, you, you, you
