  • I feel the Earth move under my feet
    I feel the sky tumblin' down
    I feel my heart start to tremblin'
    Whenever you're around

    Ooh, baby, when I see your face
    Mellow as the month of May
    Oh, darlin', I can't stand it
    When you look at me that way

    I feel the Earth move under my feet
    I feel the sky tumblin' down
    I feel my heart start to tremblin'
    Whenever you're around

    Ooh, darlin', when you're near me
    And you tenderly call my name
    I know that my emotions
    Are somethin' I just can't tame
    I've just got to have you, baby
    Uh-uh-uh, uh-uh-uh, yeah

    I feel the Earth move under my feet
    I feel the sky tumblin' down, a-tumblin' down
    I feel the Earth move under my feet
    I feel the sky tumblin' down, a-tumblin' down

    I just lose control
    Down to my very soul
    I get hot and cold
    All over, all over, all over, all over

    I feel the Earth move under my feet
    I feel the sky tumblin' down, a-tumblin' down
    I feel the Earth move under my feet
    I feel the sky tumblin' down, a-tumblin' down
    A-tumblin' down, a-tumblin' down
    A-tumblin' down, tumblin' down Writer/s: Carole King
