When Im Up I Cant Get Down  Great Big Sea

I am the fount[F]ain of affection       [C]
I'm the instrument of joy          [F]
And to keep the good times rolling
I'm the boy I[F]'m the boy        [G]
You know the world could b[F]e our oyster                 [C]
If you just put your trust in me            [F]
Cause we'll keep the good times rolling
Wait and see, wa[F]it and see           [G]
Oh wait and see       [Am]       [G]      [F]      [G]

[Am]His exaltation, a sweet disintegration         [G]
A fe[F]w discolorations, then it comes along                [G]
[Am]Up is why he chooses, the kisses and the [G]bruises
There ain't nothing h[F]e refuses, then it comes along                      [G]
It comes along and [F]I am lifted            [C]
F C G (Very quick transition from
to G)
I am lifted, I am lifted

When I'm up I ca[F]n't get down           [C]
Can't get down, ca[F]n't get level         [G]
When I'm up I ca[F]nt get down            [C]
Get my feet b[F]ack on the ground           [G]
When I'm up I ca[F]n't get down          [C]
Can't get down, c[F]an't get level          [G]
When I'm up I c[F]an't get down           [C]
Get my feet bac[F]k on the ground...        [G]
