Title: Tiny Tim - "Stay Down Here Where You Belong"
Artist: Tiny Tim Lyrics



Down below, down below

Caught the devil talking to his son

Who wanted to go up above, up above

He cried, "It's getting to warm for me down here and so,

I'm going up to Earth where I can have a little fun."

The devil slowly smiled and then he answered his son

The ice caps are melting; the tide is rushing in.

All the world must drown soon to wash away the sin.

"Stay down here where you belong

The folks who live above you don't know right from wrong

To please their king, they've all gone out to war

And not one of them knows what he's fighting for

Way up above they say that I'm a devil and I'm bad

Kings up there are bigger devils than your dad

Breaking the hearts of mothers, making butchers of their brothers

You'll find more heat up there than there is down below"

"Kings up there, they don't care

For the mothers who must stay at home, their troubles to bear

Stay at home, don't you roam

Although it's warm down here, it's warmer up there

If you go way up there, my son, I know you'll be surprised

You'll find a lot of people who are not civilized"

The ice caps are melting; the tide is rushing in.

All the world must drown soon to wash away the sin.

"Stay down here where you belong

The folks who live above you don't know right from wrong

To please their king, they've all gone out to war

And not one of them knows what he's fighting for

Way up above they say that I'm a devil and I'm bad

Kings up there are bigger devils than your dad

Breaking the hearts of mothers, making butchers of their brothers

You'll find more heat up there than there is down below"

Never hit your grandma with a shovel,

It makes a bad impression on her mind!

The ice caps are melting; the tide is rushing in.

All the world must drown soon to wash away the sin.
