I am the fountain of affection
I'm the instrument of joy
And to keep the good times rolling
I'm the boy, I'm the boy

You know the world could be our oyster
If you just put your trust in me
'Cause we'll keep the good times rolling
Wait and see, wait and see, oh wait and see

This exhaltation
And the sweet disintegration
There's a few discolourations
When it comes along

You know up is why he chooses
All the kisses and the bruises
There ain't nothing he refuses
When it comes along

It comes along and I am lifted
Oh, and I am lifted, I am lifted

When I'm up, I can't get down
Can't get down, can't get level
When I'm up, I can't get down
Get my feet back on the ground

When I'm up, I can't get down
Can't get down, can't get level
When I'm up, I can't get down
Get my feet back on the ground

I just need something to blind him
Something to wind him up
It won't take long to find him
When it comes on strong

Wise guys are grinning
And the street lights are spinning
Oh, the night is just beginning
When it comes on strong

Comes on strong and I am lifted
Oh, I am lifted, I am lifted

When I'm up, I can't get down
Can't get down, can't get level
When I'm up, I can't get down
Get my feet back on the ground

When I'm up, I can't get down
Can't get down, can't get level
When I'm up, I can't get down
Get my feet back on the ground

Said, no, no, no
And I know, no, no, no, I can't get down

Oh, it comes on strong and I am lifted
Oh, it comes on strong and I am lifted
Oh, and I am lifted, I am lifted

When I'm up, I can't get down
Can't get down, can't get level
When I'm up, I can't get down
Get my feet back on the ground

I said, when I'm up, I can't get down
Can't get down, can't get level
When I'm up, I can't get down
Get my feet back on the ground

When I'm up, I can't get down
Can't get down, can't get level
When I'm up, I can't get down
Bring my feet back on the ground

Said no, no, no, I can't get down
And I know, no, no, no, I can't get down
Oh, Lord, when I'm up I know, no, I can't get down
