  • Song Lyrics:
    There's a derelict in my doorway
    Peeing on my floorway
    Please chase him away.
    When my friends come by they smell him
    And I don't know what to tell them
    Please chase him away.
    There's a derelict in my doorway
    Better get back
    His bottle is empty
    He's about to attack!

    He is ranting and he's raving
    And I don't know what he's saying
    Please chase him away.

    (Derelict:)
    Tell me brother can you help me?
    Can you help me with a quarter?

    Please TAKE him away!
    There's a derelict in my doorway
    Better get back
    His bottle is empty
    He's about to attack!

    (Derelict:)
    I'm cold!
    I'm hungry!
    Please help me!

    There's a derelict in my doorway
    And I don't know what to do
    Looks like I'm gonna have to
    Sic the fuzz on you.
    The psycho cops are coming
    With Thorazine and lead
    They're going to stop that crazy
    Voice in your head.
    There's a derelict in my doorway
    Better be quick
    He's headed this way
    He's about be sick!
    (vomiting noises)

    (Derelict:)
    (derelict noises)
    They kicked me out of the hospital.
    They cut off my check.
    I can't find a stinking job.
    PLEASE HELP ME!

    D d d d d d d d d d d d d d d d
    Derelict in my doorway.

    (Derelict:)
    Derelict in my doorway?

    Derelict in my doorway!

    (Derelict:)
    That's me!

    D d d d d d d d derelict
    In my doorway!!

    Correction has been applied to the song fact above, which was originally posted before the 20 Club was documented.
    This could change at any time with a few well-placed votes!

    Correction to make: This song was actually one week shy of the "20 Club". It spent its 19th week on the chart on Nov. 30, 2007 and never hit again :(

    The DT20 show of 12/28/07 was the second half of the Top 50 of 2007 and therefore doesn't count in this determination.
