Song Lyrics:
Here we go again
I was lying on my back porch just a-getting some sun
Had my hair done up in pigtails had my swimming suit on
I was just about asleep when there came a shadow over me
I opened up my eyes to peek and what did I see-ee
There was a man, what a man, looking down on me
Tall dark and handsome, six foot three
There was a look in his eyes that was telling me
He knew that there was something that he wanted to see

He said, "Hi my name is Peter
And I'm here to read your meter
I'd like to see your kilowatts
Could you take me to your box"

I didn't have the slightest notion where that box could be
But I said to Peter, "Won't you follow me?"
We went upstairs downstairs inside and out
I just loved having Peter follow me about

He said, "Hey, what's with you, fox?
Can't you take me to your box?
I came here to see your meter
They call me Peter, the meter reader"

By the time he found my meter it was a quarter past four
And he said to watch my heater as he was walking through my door
Every single kilowatt was a-looking just fine
And he'd be coming back to see them in another month's ti-i-ime
So now I'm waiting, yes, I'm waiting so patiently
To have my sweet, sweet Peter read my meter for me
Maybe I should tell you so you'll understand
That Peter used to be my telephone man

Singing hey-laddy-laddy hey-laddy-laddy hey-laddy-laddy
Get it any way you can
I've never done anything like this before...well...
