  • Workin' like a dog fo de boss man (oh)
    Workin' for de company (oh yeah)
    I'm bettin' on the dice I'm tossin' (oh)
    I'm gonna have a fantasy (oh yeah)
    But where am I gonna look?
    They tell me that love is blind
    I really need a girl like an open book
    To read between the lines

    Love in an elevator
    Livin' it up when I'm goin' down
    Love in an elevator
    Lovin' it up 'til I hit the ground

    Jacki's in the elevator (oh)
    Lingerie second floor (oh yeah)
    She said can I see you later (oh)
    And love you just a little more? (9oh yeah)
    I kinda hope we get stuck
    Nobody gets out alive
    She said I'll show ya how to fax in the mail room
    Honey and have you home by five

    Love in an elevator
    Livin' it up when I'm goin' down
    Love in an elevator
    Lovin' it up 'til I hit the ground

    In the air, in the air, honey one more time not, it ain't fair
    Love in an elevator
    Lovin' it up when I'm goin' down

    Love in an
    Elevator
    Goin' down

    Love in an elevator
    Livin' it up when I'm goin' down
    Love in an elevator
    Livin' it up 'til I hit the ground

    Gonna be a penthouse pauper (oh)
    Gonna be a millionaire (oh yeah)
    I'm gonna be a real fast talker (oh)
    And have me a love affair (oh yeah)
    Gotta get my timin' right (oh)
    It's a test that I gotta pass (oh yeah)
    I'll chase you all the way to the stairway honey (oh)
    Kiss your sassafras

    Love in an elevator
    Lovin' it up when I'm goin' down
    Love in an elevator
    Livin' it up 'til I hit the ground

    Do you care?
    Do you care?
    Honey one more time now it ain't fair
    Love in an elevator
    Livin' it up when I'm goin' down
    Do you care?
    Do you care
    Honey one more time now it ain't fair
    Love in an elevator
    Livin' it up when I'm goin' down
    In the air
    In the air
    Honey one more, one more, one more
    Love in an elevator
    Livin' it up when I'm goin' down
    In the air
    In the air
    Honey one more, one more, one more
    Love in an elevator
    Livin' it up when I'm goin' down

  • Kieran from Brisbane, AustraliaI remember this being the theme tune to Raw Power back in the day.
  • Bob from Hartford Ct, CtSteven tyler actually lived in an elevator the summer he wrote this song and it is based on soem of hte events that occured during his stay there
  • Leon from Waterbury, CtI believe it's about oral sex in general..."livin' it up when I'm going down".
  • Nick from Seattle, Albaniathis is the song they played when Steven Tyler fell off the stage in '09 and had 2 be air lifted outta there! lol
  • Pat from St. Paul, MnAmazing guitar solo by Joe Perry on this song.
  • Austin from Bristow, VaThe most addictive Aerosmith song and my favorite at the time. This band freaking rocks.
  • Marissa from Akron, OhIt's obvious that no one listens to the original version of this song from "Pump" with the spoken intro. I say it's obvious because I was with my friend in the elevator at his dorm and it stopped on the second floor and I said "Second floor, hardware, children's wear, ladies' lingerie," and no one got it. :(
  • Katie from Tulsa, OkThis song is actually one of my favorites because it what got me hooked on Aerosmith! I heard the Little South of Sanity version adn fell in love.
  • Tony from Toledo, OhWhen I was 16 in 1976, and I would go out with a girl at the shopping mall. We would steal away in a empty department store elevatorlike Penneys of some place like that. And we would make out passionately when no one was there. Of course, you can only do so much in an empty elevator! I used to wonder maybe some girl I dated in high school later went out with someone from Arrowsmith-you never know! Fun song! Brings back some old high school memories!
  • Chitra from Bangaloreis it about a blow job in an elevator?
  • Sam from Portsmouth, VaLove In An Elevator is based on a true event; Steven Tyler actually had sex with a woman in an elevator.
    -Travis (a friend of Sam's)-
  • Larry from Knoxville, TnThis is my favorite Aerosmith song!
