    He got tired of all the people showing up at his door after he became famous, but being the good natured guy he is, he 'let em in' and bemusedly wrote a song about it.

    I think it is a drug song, and the singer is too stoned to get up and answer the door. The gentle way the song be-bops along suggests downers, or perhaps some strong weed...
