The Lyrics

I look around but I can't find you
How quickly the number fades
We are stopping, I'm running out time
Why can't everyone just behave
(going up)

You saw a deal
and now you have to go on up
(going up)
(going up)

In a pram
A rabbit headed girl
Is shopping with her mum
And seems to be quiet
And satisfied

And we're going up

Here in the lift
Please take my advice
Check the bill and make sure it's right
And men are kind but press in so tight
They cannot see any sunlight

I 'm looking down but I can't find two
(going up)

If only I could make some space
(going up)

I started staring at the exit sign
(going up)

Why can't everyone just behave?

I must be calm I've come here for the sale
Ready for a fight

Before I leave and I am satisfied
(we're going up)

Here in the lift
Please take my advice
Check the bill and make sure it's right
And men are kind but press in so tight
They cannot see any sunlight

(going up)
(going up)

(going up)
(going up)

And then it rings, the joy it brings
And I'm blown away by the price of things

My wages turn from black to red
As I see an offer on a bed

Here in the lift
Please take my advice
Check the bill and make sure it's right
And men are kind but press in so tight
They cannot see any sunlight

Here in the lift
Please take my advice
Check the bill and make sure it's right
And men are kind but press in so tight
They cannot see any sunlight

Here in the lift
Please take my advice
Check the bill and make sure it's right
And men are kind but press in so tight
They cannot see any sunlight

Get in the lift
