The Lyrics

When I seek an upper level,
You will see me take the stairs
Yeah, when I seek that upper level,
I will always take the stairs..
There, I feel a whole lot safer,
And don't need to say my prayers..

See You Later, Elevator
After while, turn-a-stile
See You Later, Elevator
After while, turn-a-stile
I'm a cautious kind of person
Technology does not beguile

Want no steel box on a cable
Houdini stunts are not my bag
I'll do stairways while I'm able
Walkin' up won't make me gag
I'll be free of motion sickness
Even though, behind, I'll lag

See You Later, Elevator
After while, turn-a-stile
See You Later, Elevator
After while, turn-a-stile
I like life uncomplicated
Progress isn't in my file..

I don't like revolving doorways
I'll pick one just standing there
Grab the handle, pull it open
How much work is that to bear?
Round and round is not my forte
I'm more contented as a square..

Need no fancy escalator
My feet might slip into the cracks
Moving metal pieces scare me
Accidents here, proven facts
I'll put my foot on a stairway
And do a climb that's more relaxed

See You Later, Elevator
After while, turn-a-stile
See You Later, Elevator
After while, turn-a-stile
I like life uncomplicated
progress isn't in my file..

A moving walkway at an airport
Seems kind of tricky to step on
You will never see me their, Sport
I'm inclined to be withdrawn..
Mounting needs synchronization
Horizontal, I'd be gone..

See You Later, Elevator
After while, turn-a-stile
See You Later, Elevator
After while, turn-a-stile
I like life uncomplicated
Progress isn't in my file..

Progress isn't in my file..

A funny and cautionary tale.

As someone who had a brief phobia of down escalators when I was seven, I can relate to this one. Nice work!
alvin - October 30, 2007 - Report this comment
this claustrophobic agrees heartily...5th floor !

Expected something about health and exercise... Ya keep coming up with imaginative twists on old classics, and this and your other today are fun, smooth sings. I elevate this song to Five -- no, wait, I escalate it -- oh, h*ll, walk up and get 'em yourself.

moving up on this one
Otis - October 30, 2007 - Report this comment
Why you no like me? Just because I have my ups and downs is no reason to escallate this into a revolving turn on my style. All these machines are my relatives 'cept the human conveyer belt. The family disowned him because he was always moving on us.

What Otis said. Well done, now push the button for the 5th floor please.

Funny one! Stairs ARE better for a person, anyway. I still don't like to get on moving staircases. : ) 5's

AFW - Forgot to mention fav. line in parody: "I'm inclined to be withdrawn." Sort of an oxymoronic kind of phrase.
