Last night I heard a screaming 
Loud voices behind the wall 
Another sleepless night for me 
It won't do no good to call 
The police always come late, 
If they come at all

And last night I heard a screaming 
Loud voices behind the wall 
Another sleepless night for me 
It won't do no good to call 
The police always come late, 
If they come at all

And when they arrive, 
they say they can't interfere with domestic affairs 
Between a man and his wife 
And as they walked out the door 
The tears were left in her eyes

Last night I heard a screaming 
Loud voices behind the wall 
I prayed that I was dreaming 
When I saw the ambulance in the road 
And the policeman said, 
"I'm here to keep the peace, 
Will the crowd please disperse? 
I think we all could use some sleep"

And last night I heard a screaming 
Loud voices behind the wall 
Another sleepless night for me 
It won't do no good to call 
The police always come late, 
If they come at all
