UB40 The Elevator Lyrics

Last updated: 01/11/2006 10:00:00 AM

1st floor decide what you`ll be one day
With a head full of comment and nothing to say
2nd floor mixed up it happens that way
Soon you realize that listening don`t pay
3rd floor in limbo, no easy moves
Up or down it`s time to choose

(Chorus)

The elevators going up
Quick the door`s about to shut
Too late we`re full just hang around
It won`t be long - it won`t be long before it`s down


4th floor the job hunt and all that you ask
Is an honest day`s pay for an honest day`s graft
5th floor you may make a little more money
Now it`s apparent downstairs ain`t so fuuny
6th floor a mortgage, a collar and tie
2 weeks vacation in june or july


(Chorus)

The elevators going up
Quick the door`s about to shut ....


7th floor expenses and private schools
Pushing a pen you`re not turning the tools
8th floor position, respect and acclaim
Move up the 9th for fortune or fame
10th floor for investment and real estate
Recouping the redies before it`s too late
11th floor the penthouse the final cut
With a head full of comment and a mouth that stays shut


(Chorus)

The elevators going up
Quick the door`s about to shut ....
