room 17 lyrics – king diamond

room 17 was nice and cool, oh yeah
a few stains on the wall
but that was nothing new to harry¹s head
even though he was strapped down to his bed, strapped down
harry felt pretty good…
knock, knock … knock, knock, is anybody there

room 17 was nice and cool, oh yeah
but it didn¹t have the string
that would ring the nurse, it wasn¹t there
poor harry, he had it coming, poor harry
now he didn¹t feel so good…

solo: simonsen

here comes doctor eastmann and nursie needle dear
look at what they got you … the crawly box
nurse needle: ³don¹t be such a baby, harry stop that now
the doctor¹s here to help you … it¹s eastmann time²

in room 17, everything is so clean
in room 17, there is nothing to be seen

dr. eastmann: ³black, brown, grey and hairy… we¹ve got them all
big, small, fast and scary… yeah we¹ve got them all
i can hear it, the spider¹s lullabye
i can feel it, the spiders crawl on by²

in room 17, everything is so clean
in room 17, there is nothing to be seen

dr. eastmann: ³nurse needle it is time to begin…
nurse needle, stick it in
a brown lycosa¹s what i¹ve got inside this box
i¹m gonna let him out to see just how you feel, when he¹s around
if you move too much he might just bite you
but we¹ll just have to wait and see about that …?²

solo: la rocque

deep into the night, they were testing him
so many different species, harry could not win

solo: simonsen

they forgot a grey one, she was full of eggs
and she would find the warm spot, back in harry¹s neck
it¹s so moist and warm in here
knock, knock… knock, knock, is anybody there

harry: ³you forgot some spiders in my room, yesterday
now i¹ve got this stunning pain
and my neck is feeling weird, oh i might die
overnight some of your spiders must have bit me
they were all over me²
dr. eastmann: ³oh harry, don¹t be such a fool²

that same night harry died
when they found him he was grey and white

solo: la rocque

black, brown, grey and hairy… we¹ve got them all
big, small, fast and scary… yeah we¹ve got them all
i can hear it, the spider¹s lullabye
i can feel it, the spiders crawl on by

in room 17, everything it so clean
in room 17, there is nothing to be seen

solo: simonsen

in room 17, everything is so clean
in room 17, there is nothing to be seen

take him to the morgue, take him to the morgue
