  • I said upside down
    You're turning me
    You're giving love instinctively
    Around and round you're turning me

    Upside down
    Boy, you turn me
    Inside out
    And round and round
    Upside down
    Boy, you turn me
    Inside out
    And round and round

    Instinctively you give to me
    The love that i need
    I cherish the moments with you
    Respectfully i see to thee
    I'm aware that you're cheating
    When no one makes me feel like you do

    Upside down
    Boy, you turn me
    Inside out
    And round and round
    Upside down
    Boy, you turn me
    Inside out
    And round and round

    I know you got charm and appeal
    You always play the field
    I'm crazy you are mine
    As long as the sun continues to shine
    There's a place in my heart for you
    That's the bottomline

    Upside down
    Boy, you turn me
    Inside out
    And round and round
    Upside down
    Boy, you turn me
    Inside out
    And round and round

    Instinctively you give to me
    The love that i need
    I cherish the moments with you
    Respectfully i see to thee
    I'm aware that you're cheating
    But no one makes me feel like you do

    Upside down
    Boy, you turn me
    Inside out
    And round and round
    Upside down
    Boy, you turn me
    Inside out
    And round and round

    Upside down
    Boy, you turn me
    Inside out
    And round and round
    Upside down
    Boy, you turn me
    Inside out
    And round and round

    Upside down you're turning me
    You're giving love instinctively
    Around and round you're turning me
    I see to thee respectfully

    Upside down you're turning me
    You're giving love instinctively
    Around and round you're turning me
    I see to thee respectfully

    I said a upside down you're turning me
    You're giving love instinctively
    Around and round you're turning meWriter/s: BERNARD EDWARDS, NILE GREGORY RODGERS

  • Anton from EarthWas the music used in a very cute Mercedes Benz car commersh touting the suspension's magic body control, starring a bunch of chickens because they try to keep their head stationary whilst their body moves, check it out - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zFbSAOZBVQU
  • Paul from Detroit, MiDianne and Mike: your posts made me laugh out loud! While it took me a long time to actually listen to this song, without immediately switching the station, once I heard it in it's entirety, I WAS HOOKED! :)
  • John from Nashville, TnUpside Down looked like it was going to be a flop at first. It debuted on the Billboard pop charts at #82. It struggled for six weeks before it moved to #49. Then to everyone's surprised, it jumped from #49 to #10.
  • John from Nashville, TnThis song was originally written for Aretha Franklin. Bernard Edwards and Nile Rodgers were supposed to produce her last Atlantic album, but she wanted too much creative control. Thus this union never happened.
  • Mike from Long Island, NyI can't agree more with Dianne.Probably the worst song I have ever heard in my life. When it comes on the radio I don't turn it off, I listen and wonder why anyone in the world would like this song.
  • Marc from LondonSounds like rock solid 4/4 to me Mark. Of course, the strum pattern from Nile Rodgers' rhythm guitar is anything but simple - could that be what you are refering to?
  • Mark from Lancaster, OhThis song has one of the most complex beats in popular music. I always liked it.
  • Dianne from Ft. Bening, GaI absolutely detest this song and can't understand why someone as awesome as Diana Ross recoreded it. "Respectfully I say to thee, I'm aware that you're cheatin'" -- WHAT?! Why be respectful to someone who's cheating on you? And what's this "thee" business? The lyrics stink and the music sucks!
  • Markos from Athens, GreeceThis was from the most succesful Diana's solo album, "Diana", her last at Motown label, before she moved to RCA Records (for North America) and EMI / Capitol for the rest of the world.
