He's a perfect stranger
Like a cross of himself and a fox
He's a feeling arranger
And a changer of the ways he talk
He's the unforeseen danger
The keeper of the key to the lock

Know when you see him
Nothing can free him
Step aside, open wide
He's the loner

If you see him in the subway
He'll be down at the end of the car
Watching you move
Until he knows he knows who you are
When you get off at your station alone
He'll know that you are

Know when you see him
Nothing can free him
Step aside, open wide
He's the loner

There was a woman he knew
About a year or so ago
She had somethin' that he needed
And he pleaded with her, "Please don't go"
On the day that she left
He died, but it did not show

Know when you see him
Nothing can free him
Step aside, open wide
He's the loner

Know when you see him
Nothing can free him
Step aside, open wide
He's the loner
