I'm sorry, I know this is not the genre of music usually treated in this beautiful site.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kmus_tw1ciU

It's a song with a good rhythm, but I'm not able to understand the whole lyrics.

There are my progresses:

···························

Hello who's there?
Hello who's there?
Hello?

-something- flower (?)

Who goes, friend or foe?
Who goes, I don't know?
Who goes?

Who goes, friend or foe?
Who goes, I don't know?
Who goes?

-something- with a -something-fear (?)

One, two, one two three four,
Who's that knocking at my door?
-something- go away?
If you don't say what you want (?) today.

Could be the (?)man,

-something- to you
Don't forget the taxman
-something- to you.

Hello who's there?
Hello who's there?
Hello?

-something- flower

A, B, A B C D,
-something- enough for me,
still a mistery,
I want to be sure as I could be.

Don't forget the tax man.

····························

Thank you for your patience.

It will take an ear accustomed to that distinct British accent to get all of those words. They don't seem to appear in any of the usual online lyric sites, but there are offers of points if someone will provide the lyrics.

Well, I got the line, "Could it be a lady with a flower in her hair?"

Fun song.

Do you know at least another song with this mood or accent?

You'll have to poke through search results but there were two or three places that wanted the lyrics.

Many thanks to anybody, but I abandoned the quest.
It was too much for me.

A gave it a listen. I couldn't get everything, but I think I have made a small improvement over what was already posted. Words I have changed or added are boldfaced. Words I can't get (sometimes several words in a row) are indicated by an ellipsis (…):


HELLO, WHO'S THERE?
As sung by July on "July" (1968)

Hello! Who's there?
Hello! Who's there?
Hello!
Hello! Who's there?
Hello! Who's there?
Hello!

Could it be a lady with a
flower in her hair?
Ooh!


Who goes, friend or foe?
Who goes? I don't know.
Who goes?
Who goes, friend or foe?
Who goes? I don't know.
Who goes?

Could it be a ... with another …?

One! Two! One, two, three, four,
Who's that knocking at my door?
Why don't you go away,
If you don't say what you want today?

Could be the rent man, after last week's due.
… do
you?
Don't forget the tax man; it could be him too.
… do
you?

Hello! Who's there?
Hello! Who's there?
Hello!
Hello! Who's there?
Hello! Who's there?
Hello!

Could it be a lady with a flower in her hair?
Oi!


A! B! A, B, C, D,
Who's that calling out for me?
It's still a mystery.
I want to be sure as I can be.

[After that, they just repeat some of the above lines, with increasing ambient noise, laughter, overlapping sung lines, etc., until the end.]

Hello everybody, I settled the matter once and for all: I asked July's page the lyrics.



Hello Who's There

Hello who's there, hello who's there, hello
Hello who's there, hello who's there, hello
Could it be a Lady with a flower in her hair

Who goes friend or foe, who goes I don't know, who goes
Who goes friend or foe, who goes I don't know, who goes
Could it be young Kevin with another Hastings Pier

One two, one two three four who's that knocking at my door
Why don't you go away, if you don't say what you want to day
Could be the rent man after last weeks due
Pay me up or else I'll get the fuzz on to you
Don't forget the Tax Man, it could be him too
Pay me up or else I'll get the fuzz on to you

AB, ABCD who's that calling out for me, it's still a mystery
I want to be as sure as I can be
