ooh, well i got a girl with a record machine
when it comes to rockin' she's the queen
we love to dance on a saturday night
all alone where i can hold her tight
but she lives on the twentiest floor uptown
the elevator's broken down

so i walked one, two flight, three flight, four
five, six, seven flight, eight flight, more
up on the twelfth i started to drag
fifteenth floor i'm a-ready to sag
get to the top, i'm too tired to rock

when she calls me up on the telephone
say, come on over honey, i'm all alone
i said, baby you're mighty sweet
but i'm in bed with the achin' feet
this went on for a couple of days
but i couldn't stay away

well they sent to chicago for repairs
till it's a-fixed i'm a-usin' the stairs
hope they hurry up before it's too late
want my baby too much to wait
all this climbin' is a-gettin' me down
they'll find my corpse draped over a rail
but i climbed one, two flight, three flight four
