Lyrics
Well I hear shoutin'
And Crowds a cheering
There's so much laughter

I feel so high I think
I'll not come down
For ever after.

Thoughts in my head
Gonna dance high above Me
I really do believe that everybody loves me
And the funny thing is,
That's how it is.

Well there's a love song singing
Through the soft green grasses,
But it's far behind me
Relaxing my eyes as they reflect on the sky
And it almost blinds me.

Open My eyes and the sun comes up
Seems the hole world shaking like a Happy pup
And it cracks me up
That's how it is.

Well There's a whole new set of dues
Each time I get outta bed

And There's no question about it,
I'm outta my head

Well I sometimes wonder what this trip I'm under
Is All about now

My Mind is thumping
Yeah my brain is jumping
Like an over the moon cow

And When I wanna Leave
I never used that door
I opened up the room
And out that door
Now don't you say ain't so
That's how it is

Well There's a whole new set of dues
Each time I get outta bed

And There's no question about it,
I'm outta my head

Well I sometimes wonder what this trip I'm under
Is All about now

My Mind is thumping
Yeah my brain is jumping
Like an over the moon cow

And When I wanna Leave
I never used that door
I opened up the room
And out that door
Now don't you say ain't so
That's how it is
