Elevate me mama
Mama, five or six stories on down
Elevate me mama
Mama, five or six stories on down
Now you know ev'rybody tells me
You must-a be the elevatin'ist woman in town

A-now an when you starts elevatin me, baby
You might even a-scares me to death
A-you carries me so fast, I'll tell you that
Stop an let me catch my breath

Now, elevate me mama, yeah
Mama, five or six stories on down
You know ev'rybody tells me
You must-a be the elevatin-ist woman in town

A-now, you elevates me in the mo'nin, baby
You gotta elevate me late at night
An you must-a elevate me, babe
Until you are elevatin' me just right

Now, elevate me mama now
Mama, five or six stories on down
A-you know ev'rybody tells me
You must-a be the elevatin-ist woman in town

(piano & instrumental)

Well now, an I went to yo'are apartment last night
You had yo'are a-elevator runnin' slow
I gave you a buzz, I want you to-a
A-take me up on the third flo'

Now elevate me baby
Mama, five or six stories on down
A-you know ev'rybody tells me
A-you must-a be the elevatin' woman in town.
