Burton Cummings – Above The Ground lyrics
Been changin' my flight for a week now
Not a chance of gettin' off the ground
And I mighta lost some o' my marbles
So I'm checkin' with the lost and found

I'm only tryna stay ahead of danger
And the tickin' of the thin red hand
But in a half a second I got older
It's gettin' harder now to understand

Wo woh time keep runnin'
Gettin' my stopwatch wound
Wo woh moon or sunnin'
Day and night'll both be day
And night'll both be
Keepin' me above the ground

Been wakin' up with my nose in the eggs now
And I suppose that I could use a shower
But I'll never turn the other cheek now
I guess the "Tude" is gettin' dark and sour

I gotta man-up to what I been thinkin'
Not a crime to wanna kick it alone
But I have come to know what is a real crime
To mortify what you don't own
Wo woh, time keep runnin'

Gettin' my stopwatch wound
Wo woh, moon or sunnin'
Day and night'll both be day
And night'll both be
Keepin' me above the ground

Shoot for the ground
And you know what you'll find
You'll get the ground every time
Shoot for the moon
While your thoughts stay sublime
You'll get something in between

Wo woh, time keep runnin'
Gettin' my stopwatch wound
Wo woh, moon or sunnin'
Day and night'll both be day
And night'll both be
Keepin' me above the ground
