The Lyrics

Brought to my mind somehow by queasy reactions to the tightrope walking in new film THE WALK
Look at what’s happened to you
Something you didn’t expect
You’re watching him on the top of the world
It had an unwanted effect

(chorus)
Believe it or not, you’re gasping for air
You never thought you could turn so blue
Box office booms, and they really don’t care
What can you do?
Believe me, it isn’t just you

Just like a ride in a theme park
I’m feeling real queasy and faint
But I read the warnings before I went in
So no grounds to go lodge a complaint

(repeat chorus)

This is too graphic for me
Look at him – there in 3-D

(repeat chorus)
