She called me up on the telephone
Said: "Come over, baby. I'm all alone."
I said: "Sorry, baby. You're mighty sweet,
but I'm in bed achin' feet."
This went for a couple of days
But I could not stay away
 
 ---------------------------------------------------------

So I walk one, two flight, three flight, four
Five, six, seven flight, eight flight more
At 12th I'm startin' to sag
15th floor I'm ready to drag
Get to te top, I'm too tired to rock

They sent it to Chicago for repairs
'Til it's fixed I'm usin' the stairs
I have to get there before it's to late
My baby couldn't bear much to wait
All this climbin' is gettein' me down
You'll find my corps draped over a rail
 
 ---------------------------------------------------------

But I fly one, two flight, three flight four
Five, six, seven flight, eight flight more
At 12th I'm startin' to sag
15th floor I'm ready to drag
Get to the top, I'm too tired to rock
 
 ---------------------------------------------------------

And that's it.
