Electric Theatre Radio Hour featuring G.Lee: Radio & Music

6 Creepin'

(Noise Poets)
November 19, 2015
George Douglas Lee

I was coming back from a gig in Houston with our manager, and we suddenly were stuck in bumper to bumper traffic on I-45 near Clear Lake, halfway to our base in Galveston. We had to be at an event that night around six, so it was getting testy and anxious. I started humming a blues riff, then started singing about "creepin'", creeping on the highway. Then it morphed into a parody of Jim Morrison and the Doors. I got home, fleshed out the lyrics with some highly sexual references to snakes, creeping, crawling and other Doorsy metaphors, and the song was born. Slide guitar made it extra nasty... 

Creepin’

Lyrics and Music  by George Douglas Lee

INTRO IN E, then riff E,E – F# - G, G,  E,E DF – B… E,E – F# - G, G,  E,E DF - B

 

E  Here I come now -  creepin’, on a moonlight drive

A  Following your scent like a snake, I’m hunting in the night

 

B Crawling through the night, while the   A  people sleep

E  Creepin’ in your room for my midnight treat  B

 

E Leave your window open, and unlock your door

(A is an ascending riff AA, BB, CC, C#, D, E – A)

A Gonna creep around your neck, crawl up in your hair

E Then slither in your love nest, you know just where

B In between your knees, gonna   A  crawl way up inside

E  Get up on your knees, I’m gonna  B   take what’s mine

 

E  Come on creepin’, creeping round your door

A  Yeah I live for your loving, and loving you makes living all right,

E  I want some more

 

B  Creeping like a snake through the  A   jungle by the lake

E  Crawling through your door, gonna creep in for more B

Come on crawl!

riff E,E – F# - G, G,  E,E DF – B… E,E – F# - G, G,  E,E DF - B

 

A  Leave your window open, and unlock your door

E I’m gonna creep into your love nest -  And love you some more

 

A Gonna creep around your neck, crawl up in your hair

E  And slither in your love nest, paradise is there

A  In between your knees, gonna creep up inside

B Let me in baby, gonna take what’s mine

B I’ll come in through the back door where   A  no one can see

A Get right down on your E hands and knees  

 

riff E,E – F# - G, G,  E,E DF – B… E,E – F# - G, G,  E,E DF - B

 

E  You know I eat more chicken any man ever seen

E  My appetite is big, I’m hard and mean

A Looking for the sugar, hidden in the night

E  Leave your window open and I’ll squeeze in tight

 

B Come on, come on, come on, come on baby,  A   let me in

B  Come on little darlin’, let’s creep around my den B

 

E Leave your window open, and unlock your door

EE, DD, BB, GG, F# - E  I’m gonna creep into your love nest gonna love you some more
