Levitate

  • Well what have we here, what do I see
    I think someone's coming up to challenge me
    I love it, I say bring it, I'm well prepared
    Confidence rises with the heat out there

    This thing is great
    My excitement will not abate
    I will act and not hesitate
    Listen all you can relate
    Like a skater with the best of skates
    Confidence elevates
    Looking for an ecstatic state
    You are the master of your own fate
    Watch how we radiate
    Get up little children, levitate

    I look and I look for the euphoric state
    We've been putting our time in
    While you were playing games
    Searching for a state of ecstasy
    The cynical armchair experts
    I'll just let them be

    This thing is great
    My excitement will not abate
    I will act and not hesitate
    Listen all you can relate
    Like a skater with the best of skates
    Confidence elevates
    Looking for an ecstatic state
    You are the master of your own fate

    Gather round the schoolyard gate,
    History will record this date
    Feel the shifting tectonic plates,
    You can get it even if you're straight
    Allow me to illustrate, how we humbly will create
    Time for the shake and bake
    Get up, little children, levitate

    This thing is great
    My excitement will not abate
    I will act and not hesitate
    Listen all you can relate
    Like a skater with the best of skates
    Give a man a clean slate
    Gonna stay up late

    You are the master of your own fate
    Gather round the schoolyard gate,
    History will record this date
    Feel the shifting tectonic plates,
    You can get it even if you're straight
    And the village children levitate
    And the village children elevate

    Allow me to illustrate,
    How we humbly will create
    Time for the master of time and space,
    Time for the shake and bake
    This is how we levitate Writer/s: BRUCE HORNSBY, THOMAS NEWMAN
