Let Em In Lyrics

Someone's knockin' at the door
Somebody's ringin' the bell
Someone's knockin' at the door
Somebody's ringin' the bell
Do me a favor, open the door and let 'em in

Someone's knockin' at the door
Somebody's ringin' the bell
Someone's...

    I thought it was about Jehovas witnesses with the mention of religious figures and yknow, people knocking at the door.

    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...

    I like the above interpretations which talks of the outsiders, the misfits, non-conformists, disabled who are knocking at the door and ringing the bell trying to enter into society, which, as we all should know if we read quality literature,--a society which is a rather tedious invention of latter-day civilization meant solely to tender to the rather selfish pleasures of the petit bourquouis (Spell-Check!) (infernal twits that they are) and---Criminals.....

    But, to go on---I think the song is rather about the lonely person INSIDE the house who, through shyness or a sense of inadequacy, a lack of trust, has shut the door to the OUTSIDE and all the strangers who could very easily become good friends. But that's Paul McCartney--The Eternal Optimist. He's the Yin to Lennon's Yang--which made for the greatest rock band the world will ever have the pleasure to listen to--forever, and ever, Amen. That Martin Luther line is just brilliant! Paul's great!

    I believe "Sister Suzie" might refer to Susan Tate.
