Marcy Playground – Comin' Up From Behind lyrics

Oh, she's an eight ball,
She's a'rollin faster than a white ball,
She's got an avalanche packed in a snowball,
She's a'losin all the links,
She's like a stonewall,
She's loaded up;
She's the underdog,
Gonna take a mighty swipe
At the high horse,
While a'sippin on her tricks
In a pitfall,
Makin' eyes at the girls like bullfrogs,
I'm telling you, sir;
[Chorus:]
She's comin' up from,
Comin' up from, comin' up,
Comin' up from behind;
Yeah,
She's comin' up from,
Comin' up from, comin' up,
Comin' up from behind,
You'd like her hanging
Like a sneaker on a live wire, dangling,
While your Wall Street pockets are jangling
With the hollow jackpot of your rich kid games;
It's a long shot,
She's got tooth and a tongue for a slingshot,
But she's takin' steady aim
At the bigshots,
It's hard to miss the rolling-polies
On the blacktop,
You better watch your turf;
[Chorus:]
She's comin' up from,
Comin' up from, comin' up,
Comin' up from behind;
Yeah,
She's comin' up from,
Comin' up from, comin' up,
Comin' up from behind,
You had her hanging
Like a sneaker on a live wire, dangling,
While your golden-lined pockets were jangling
With the hollow jackpot of your wicked games;
She caught your sick lie,
It was creepin' in the shadow of your white smile,
Lurkin' underneath the cover of your bedroom eyes,
Well, you're greasin' up plans for your small-fry;
You wanna talk it up, do you?
Well you're floatin like a royal balloon -- oh,
Your ego's swollen to the size of the moon, well,
I think you found somebody to cut you down to size--
Well well;
Yeah,
She's comin' up from,
Comin' up from, comin' up,
Comin' up from behind,
Yeah,
She's comin' up from,
Comin' up from, comin' up,
Comin' up from behind,
She's comin' up from,
Comin' up from, comin' up,
Comin' up from behind,
**repeat until end
