The Lyrics

I was originally gonna do "Love on an Escalator" but it's been done before on I took the idea of "Stuck in an Elevator" which has been done a couple times on here, and stuck with my original idea. Original Song:
Walkin’ in the mall for some shoppin' (woah)
Gift for anniversary (woah yeah)
I must keep going, ain’t no stoppin’ (Go!)
I gotta go to level three (woah yeah)

Elevator’s all full up
I’ll go to the other side
I stand right on those steps that are going up
Then something went awry

Stuck on an escalator
I could go up or I could go down
Stuck on an escalator
Stuck in one place, someone get me down

Should’ve used the elevator (duh)
Or the stairs, just one floor (woah yeah)
How long do I have to wait here? (ugh)
until it moves a little more? (oh man)

This whole thing just really sucks
I don’t think I’m out of line
They said, “They are being shut down, closed for maintenance, buddy!
Please get down at this time!”

Stuck on an escalator
Someone get help, someone get me down
Stuck on an escalator
It should be working when I’m around

Now they’re stairs, these are stairs
I have walked enough, man this ain’t fair
Stuck on an escalator
I’ll just stay put ‘til they get me down

“Sir, get down!”

Stuck on an escalator
I will not move ‘til they get me down
Stuck on an escalator
I could walk up, but I’ll just sit down

Someone get me a newspaper (yeah)
Sitting on not moving stairs (woah yeah)
These things were not meant for walkin’ (no)
Until they work, I’ll sit here (woah yeah)

Gettin’ pretty late at night (woah)
Guy said to me through the glass- (woah yeah)
“I hope you have fun on your stairway, buddy. (woah)
The mall’s now closed, you ass!”

Stuck on an escalator
Stay here all night ‘til they get me down
Stuck on an escalator
This thing should work, still I’m off the ground

Cause they’re stairs, they are stairs
Wastin’ all my time
Man, this ain't fair

Stuck on an escalator
The mall is closed, there’s no one around
On these stairs, no one cares
Too much precious time
To be stuck on stairs

Stuck on an escalator
I’m way too good to walk up or down
From these stairs, on these stairs
Serious this time,
Please get repaired

Stuck on an escalator
Sit or stand up, cause I can’t lay down
On these stairs, on these stairs
Didn’t want to climb
Cause I hate stairs!

Stuck on an escalator
I could walk up, but I won’t come down

Stuck on an escalator
The laughing stock of the whole damn town

On these stairs, on these stairs
Don’t need stairs, hate these stairs…

Stuck on an escalator
Suppos’ta go up, but I’ll just get down

True story: I went to a basketball game once, Nets vs. Lakers at the Meadowlands Arena, and on my way from the ticket office to the concourse, the escalator got stuck. Knowing that the Nets were (and still are) doomed to be the "little brother" team to the Knicks, I turned around and said, "Hey, did you hear the one about the 2,000 Nets fans who got stuck on an escalator?" And the guy behind me says, "Not me, I'm rooting for the Lakers." Who, by the way, clobbered us that day and went on to win the title. Front-runner...
