I´ve been around and i´ve seen some things
Faster than the speeding bullet
All day and all night
I´m pretty fast myself
Along in the chorus of this song
Better not look down
Put the hammer down
Better not look back
You can keep it moving

That girl have lived in love and for love
If the arrows from cupid´s bow that had
Out of her body she would have looked like
B.b. do you think i´ve lived my life all wrong?
Along in the chorus of this song

If you want to keep on flying
Keep it full speed ahead
Or you might just wind up crying
If you don´t look down
I was walking down the street at sunrise one morning
And there was a very large rolls royce limousine
And in that rolls royce was the queen of england
Just go back from a party, and the queen leaned out and
Oh b.b., sometimes it´s so hard to pull things together
And i said:
Better not look down
Put the hammer down
Better not look back
You can keep it moving
