No, Guest, I believe the song you're referring to is "Barnacle Bill the Sailor".

Who's that knocking at my door, etc...
Open the door, you... whore, it's Barnacle Bill the Sailor.

Will you take me to the dance, etc...
To hell with the dance, and take off your pants, it's Barnacle Bill...

and so on. I believe it was Dr. Dirty (John Valby) who recorded it.

Geez, I hate knowing crap like that.
