lyrics

Mister D. was an office clerk
Who filed, stamped and typed
When it was sunny, he walked to work
Under his bowler hat
He was all quiet and ordinary
Until one night he found out
He had quite an unusual ability
Nothing you’d ever heard about

He could walk through walls
And it didn’t even itch
He was a lone wolf
The price of his gift

Short spoken was Mr L his boss
With his brush cut moustache
Had decided to make Mr D’s life tough
And moved him to a cubbyhole shack
He was never happy and would always complain
About Mr D’s work which drove him insane
So D passed his head through the next door partition
Scared the hell out of his boss to teach him a lesson

Then Mister D took the game to another level
Every night he’d rob banks but the playful devil
Always left a note written in cursive bright red
With his moniker on so the word would spread
His theft every morning would be front page news
The readers loved him, the police had no clues
So he decided to get himself willingly caught
To prison he was sent, in a secured cell block

He could walk through walls
Stone, wood or brick
None was impregnable
Not even concrete
He’s the walker, the walker through walls

The thickness of the prison wall was for him a real treat
Told the warden he’d be gone, out at eleven on the street
He was now in disguise and nobody could tell,
Then a married girl he met, both in love they fell
He said that he would be at her place tonight
Even if her husband had her locked inside
Mr D. got in and loved her till dawn
But on his way out he remained stuck in the wall
