No oh oh ooo oh oh. Don't look down. No. Don't look down, my friend, because I'm keeping my hopes up high (up high) I'm keeping my hopes up high (up high) I'm keeping my hopes up high (up high) And you can fly up here with me (up high) Just don't let me down I'm keeping my hopes up high (up high) I'm keeping my hopes up high (up high) I'm keeping my hopes up high (up high) And if you start to fall We'll fall together I'm keeping my hopes I said I'm keeping my hopes I'm keeping my hopes I'm keeping my I'm keeping my I'm keeping my hopes Said I'm keeping my hopes up high

You and I Our clocks are tickin' by the minute But we don't know it, we don't get it This life together is a limited time offer So why, why're we runnin' around and fightin' Mindless barkin' and bitin'? If we all want peace, then why all the dyin'? Let's stop the whole world for a minute And let us just Dance to the rhythm Sing with the melody Dance to the rhythm Sing with the melody You and I Our clocks are tickin' by the minute But we don't know it, we don't get it This life together is a limited time offer So why, why're we runnin' around and fightin' Mindless barkin' and bitin'? If we all want peace, then why all the dyin'? Let's stop the whole world for a minute And let us just Dance to the rhythm Sing with the melody Dance to the rhythm Sing with the melody If you want to, then you need to If you want to, you had best get on it soon If you want to, then you need to If you want to, you had best get on it soon Dance to the rhythm, ba da ba ba baa Sing with the melody Dance to the rhythm, ba da ba ba baa Sing with the melody Dance to the rhythm, ba da ba ba baa Sing with the melody Dance to the rhythm, ba da ba ba baa Sing with the melody Dance to the rhythm, ba da ba ba baa Sing with the melody Drop all our problems Live life in harmony

I've got a love hate relationship With seventy-nine and ninety I've got a love hate relationship With seventy-nine and ninety They bring me to you And you to me But they're just a little long, you see Just a few more months, baby Just a few more months, baby Just a few more months, baby We'll be okay Just a few more months, baby Just a few more months, baby Just a few more months, baby We'll be okay

[Verse1] No one ever has a problem with John He is always on time He does his best to blend in with the crowd He's institutionalized It started back in elementary school. Bullies laughed when he walked. He started trying to normalize Himself, even the way that he talked [Chorus] (Oh just keep me insane) I don't wanna be normal Cause normal is boring, and boring is lame There's enough normal people I'd rather be quirky and slightly insane [Verse2] Yea, no one's ever had a problem with John Since elementary school He shops at gap, drinks bud light on tap; he's a sap But always tries to act cool He works hard. He mows the yard. He cleans his car. Every saturday! He follows trends Never offends He sees his friends Every 6 months. [goto Chorus] I got a visit from the ghost of Corporate future He said that I'm becoming just like John No one's ever had a problem with him Except me, except me, except me [Break it down now] [goto Chorus]
