Lyrics
Don’t get too comfortable, my boy
I’m expecting company
Don’t you have somewhere else to go
Or do you just like to visit me?
You can’t come around any time you please  (uh, uh)
Just like you did before  (uh, uh)
So tighten up your tie  (tighten up)
Button up that jacket  (button up)
And make it for the door  (make it for the door)

Don’t get too close to me, my boy
I’m not playing around with you
Can’t you leave well enough alone
Why can’t you just realize we’re through?
I couldn’t start again, oh no sir-ee  (uh, uh)
I couldn’t take it any more  (uh, uh)
So tighten up your tie  (tighten up)
Button up that jacket  (button up)
And make it for the door  (make it for the door)

Oh, the bell might ring any minute
And he just wouldn’t understand
You had romance but you blew your chance
Tryin’ to play a double hand

You know that I’m weak for you, my boy  (auh bop, auh bop)
Oh, did you just come around to see  (auh bop, auh bop)
If your sweet and tender charms  (auh bop, auh bop)
Would still work out on me?  (auh bop, auh bop)
Well even if you did  (if you did)
You can still grab your hat  (your hat)
Cause now I know the score  (uh, uh, uh)
Tighten up your tie  (tighten up)
Button up your jacket  (button up)
And make it for the door  (make it for the door)

Then if you just hear that make, make it for the door  (tighten up your tie, uh, ah ah ah)
You gotta chunking some with that jacket  (button up your jacket, uh, ah ah ah)
Oh, then button up that jacket skin  (make it for the door, uh, ah ah ah)
Baby, and make it for the door  (tighten up your tie)

Català – Estreny-te La Corbata, Corda’t La Jaqueta (Surt Per La Porta)
No et posis massa còmode, noi
Espero companyia
No tens altre lloc on anar
O, simplement, t’agrada visitar-me?
No pots aparèixer per aquí cada cop que et vingui de gust  (uh, uh)
Tal com feies abans  (uh, uh)
Així que estreny-te la corbata  (estreny)
Corda’t la jaqueta  (corda)
I surt per la porta  (surt per la porta)

No t’apropis massa a mi, fill meu
No estic jugant amb tu
No pots deixar les coses com estaven
Per què no acabes d’adonar-te que hem tallat?
No podria començar de nou, oh no senyor  (uh, uh)
No podria aguantar-ho més  (uh, uh)
Així que estreny-te la corbata  (estreny)
Corda’t la jaqueta  (corda)
I surt per la porta  (surt per la porta)

Oh, el timbre pot sonar en qualsevol moment
I ell no ho entendria
Tenies el romanç però vas desaprofitar la teva oportunitat
Intentant fer un doble joc

Saps que sóc feble amb tu, fill meu  (auh bop, auh bop)
Oh, vens per aquí per veure  (auh bop, auh bop)
Si els teus dolços i tendres encants  (auh bop, auh bop)
Podrien seguir funcionant amb mi?  (auh bop, auh bop)
Bé, fins i tot si ho has fet  (si ho has fet)
Encara pots agafar el teu barret  (el teu barret)
Perquè ara ja conec la partitura  (uh, uh, uh)
Estreny-te la corbata  (estreny)
Corda’t la jaqueta  (corda)
I surt per la porta  (surt per la porta)

Aleshores, si just has escoltat això, surt, surt per la porta  (estreny-te la corbata, uh, ah ah ah)
Has d’ofegar algú amb aquesta corbata  (corda’t la jaqueta, uh, ah ah ah)
Oh, després corda’t la jaqueta de pell  (surt per la porta, uh, ah ah ah)
Noi, i surt per la porta  (estreny-te la corbata)
