Looking Up

Lyrics

Billy and Lee went down to the shore

Two inch [???] to four

Smile walk away the day the school bell rings

Sink down to the ocean floor

Whatever happen in this year science fair

When did you think you you were going nowhere [going up]

You’ve got it when there is nothing to lose

Billy and Lee don’t seem to care

 

I’ll spend my time down here at the bottom

Looking up

I’m doing fine down here at the bottom

Looking up

 

Nowhere to go when nothing to fear [going up]

All that we know is that these are the best of our years

Hold on to that thought we heard it all before

Billy and Lee don’t seem to care

 

I’ll spend my time down here at the bottom [sha la la]

Looking up

Doing fine down here at the bottom [sha la la]

Looking up

 

We don’t know when we went long

We thought we taught them well [well well]

Maybe they’ll grow out of it and be like everyone else

Maybe just like us

 

I’ll spend my time down here at the bottom [sha la la]

Looking up

I’m doing fine down here at the bottom [sha la la]

Looking up

I’ll spend my time down here at the bottom [sha la la]

Looking up

I’m doing fine down here [sha la la]

Looking up
