The Lyrics

Up/down girl,
She’s been living in her up/down world—
That’s because her polarity is “bi”;
One minute she’s low, and the next she’s high.

Don’t wanna lie with an uptown girl,
Don’t wanna give her an in-bed whirl,
Because she’ll go from hot to cold and then
She will get started on putting down men. . .
Beyond my ken.

I never know what
Can be on her mind.
I think I’ll take up
With another kind.

I think I’ve had enough,
Even though
I’m in love with this up/down girl,
But I simply don’t need her up/down world.
Tried to get pharmaceuticals deployed;
She wouldn’t take ’em and got sore annoyed. . .

Up/down girl—
Her mind’s a maelstrom, a chaotic swirl.
To it the cerebral ships go in;
To synaptic Davey Jones, where they swim. . .
Lights bright, then dim.

First when she’s talking. . .
As if she mainlined
Some speed—then shocking!
Like on Quaaludes dined.

And so, it’s kinda rough. . .
Get rebuffed
Thoughts of love
With an up/down girl,
Who is living in a white/black world,
Because she’ll go from hot to cold and then
She will get started on putting down men,
Before long she is back to hot again.
She calls me “Ken!”

Up/down girl;
She’s an up/down girl. . .
Afraid to make love
With this up/down girl.
