  • Song Lyrics:
    I saw a werewolf with a Chinese menu in his hand,
    Walking through the streets of Soho in the rain,
    He was looking for the place called Lee Ho Fook's
    Going to get himself a big dish of beef chow mein.
    Ahhh-oooh
    Werewolves of London

    If you hear him howling around your kitchen door
    Better not let him in
    Little old lady got mutilated late last night
    Werewolves of London, again
    Ahh-oooh
    Werewolves of London

    He's the hairy handed gent who ran amok in Kent
    Lately he's been overheard in Mayfair
    Better stay away from him...He'll rip your lungs out, Jim
    Heh, I'd like to meet his tailor
    Ahh-ooh
    Werewolves of London
    Ahhh-oooh

    Well, I saw Lon Chaney walking with the Queen
    Doing the Werewolves of London
    I saw Lon Chaney Jr. walking with the queen
    Doing the werewolves of London
    I saw a werewolf drinking a piña colada at Trader Vic's
    His hair was perfect
    Ahh-ooooooooooooh
    Werewolves of London
    Draw Blood!
    Ahh-ooooooooooooh
