  • With a knock-knock, where’s the door that’s being knocked on?
  • Knock-knock-knock, knock-knock-knock, knocking on the door
  • With a knock-knock, the door that’s being knocked on is not here
  • Knock-knock-knock, knock-knock-knock
  • At the door, the door to wherever, at the door, the door to wherever
  • I’m knocking on the door
