Lyrics


Workin' like a dog for the boss man

Workin' for the company

I'm bettin' on the dice I'm tossin'

I'm gonna have a fantasy

But where am I gonna look?

They tell me that love is blind

I really need a girl like an open book

to read between the lines


Love in an elevator

Livin' it up when I'm goin' down

Love in an elevator

Lovin' it up 'til I hit the ground


Jacki's in the elevator

Lingerie second floor

She said 'can I see you later

And love you just a little more?'

I kinda hope we get stuck

nobody gets out alive

She said I'll show ya how to fax in the mailroom honey

and have you home by five


Love in an elevator

Livin' it up when I'm goin' down

Love in an elevator

Lovin' it up 'til I hit the ground


In the air, in the air, honey one more time not, it ain't fair

Love in an elevator

Lovin' it up when I'm goin' down


Love in an

elevator

goin' down


Love in an elevator

Lovin' it up when I'm goin' down

Love in an elevator

Lovin' it up when I hit the ground


Gonna be a penthouse pauper

Gonna be a millionaire

I'm gonna be a real fast talker

and have me a love affair

Gotta get my timin' right

It's a test that I gotta pass

I'll chase you all the way to the stairway honey

Kiss your sassafras


Love in an elevator

Lovin' it up when I'm goin' down

Love in an elevator

Livin' it up 'til I hit the ground


Do you care? Do you care?

Honey one more time now it ain't fair

Love in an elevator

Livin' it up when I'm goin' down
