…twice on the pipe means you ain’t gunna’ show
Knock Three Times is a popular song recorded by Tony Orlando and Dawn. It was released as a single in November 1970, paired with their other hit song Candida. The single hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100 in January 1971 and eventually sold nine million copies, also claiming the number one spot on the UK Singles Chart.
It’s a little known fact on this side of the Atlantic, but the song is actually a remake (with English lyrics) of a popular Italian pop song of that era.
Enjoy Tony Orlando and the beautiful and talented Dawn, Telma Hopkins and Joyce Vincent Wilson.
