James Reyne Poor Man In The Penthouse Lyrics

Last updated: 04/18/2006 11:00:00 AM

Well I don't know the reason
It came from nowhere
But this street just got paved with gold
Well I kicked my gong
Right out of there
Now I'm sitting on top of the world
Sitting on top of the world
Who put that stone in the water
Who threw that salt on the sea

Chorus ~
The poor man in the penthouse
The poor man in the penthouse
The poor man in the penthouse
Down on his knees
Crying too much of nothing

Now we sit together
The skyline and me
We've got no worries no cares
And if I stayed here forever
Where would I be
Alone at the top of the stairs
Alone at the top of the stairs
Well I've never climbed any mountains
But I've seen them everywhere

Chorus

The dog's got his bone in the alley
This old cat's got nine lives to spare
