Who's going down?
Who's going down?
Who's going down?
Who's going down?

I ride my elevator through the shafts of your heart
When you climb aboard baby there's no getting off
I'm a silent operator won't you please take my hand
I am so polite I'm the elevator man, friction and harmony
Who's gonna ride with me, I'm the elevator man?

Who's going down, who's coming with me?
Who wants to take a chance on a piece of abstract reality?
It's only just a dance won't you come
And ride with the elevator man?

Who's going down, yeah, moving slow without a sound?
Who's going down, who's going down, who's going down?
I said, who's going down?
Who's going down, who's going down?

Please pretty baby, won't you come to me?
Won't you let me be your daddy come sit here on my knee?
Come tell your sugar daddy all of your fears
Cry for me darling let me taste your tears
As they roll down your face and on to the sand
We're going down together I'm the elevator man

Now, we're moving slow without a sound going up and going down
Take an intermission while the bird is in hand
With two in the bush, so give yourself a push
Won't you come and ride with me elevator man?

I said, who's going down?
Who's going down, who's going down?
I said, who's going down?
Who's going down, who's going down?

I said, who's going down?
Who's going down, who's going?
I said, who's going down?
Who's going down, who's going?

Say goodbye to hate, goodbye to love
Goodbye to the world that you used to know above
Say goodbye to your momma and your daddy too
We're going to a place that you never even knew

Now, we're moving slow without a sound going up and going down
Take an intermission while the bird is in hand
With two in the bush, so give yourself a push
Won't you come and ride with the elevator man?

Friction and harmony who's gonna ride with me?
Far across the ocean on a floating bed of sand
Eyes toward the empty skies, searching for the big surprise
Who's gonna ride with the elevator man?

I said, who's going down?
Who's going down, who's going?
I said, who's going down
Who's going down, who's going?

I said, who's going down
Who's going down, who's going?
I said, who's going down?
