LYRICS FOR ORIGINALLLY RELEASED VERSION:

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 a big dish of beef chow mein
Ahhhooo, 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 amuck in Kent
Lately he's been overheard in Mayfair
Better stay away from him
He'll rip your lungs out, Jim
I'd like to meet his tailor
Ahhhooo, werewolves of London

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 pina colada at Trader Vic's
And his hair was perfect
Ahhhooo, werewolves of London again
Gut, draw blood

LYRICS FOR ALTERNATE VERSION:

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
Gonna get a big dish of beef chow mein
Bite down!
Ahhhooo, Werewolves of London

That dangerous man!

If you hear him howling around your kitchen door
You'd better not let him in
Little old lady got mutilated late last night
Werewolves of London again
Draw blood!
Ahhhooo, Werewolves of London

He's the hairy-handed gent who ran amok in Kent
Lately he's been overheard in Mayfair
You better stay away from him
He'll rip your lungs out, Jim
I'd like to meet his tailor
Hit me!
Ahhhooo, Werewolves of London

Come down!

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 pina colada at Trader Vic's at the Hilton
Dressed to the nines, and his hair was perfect
Hit me!
Ahhhooo, ahhhooo
