UB40 lyrics : "The Elevator"

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 funny
6th floor a mortgage, a collar and tie

2 weeks vacation in june or july

[Chorus]


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]
