In my life I’ve grown upside down Caught my string on the ground Where the river won’t run Where the sparrow won’t dive Where the spirit can’t sing And the arrow won’t climb Oh I’ve seen the sun go down And the moon on the rise I saw it all once
In my haze I faced a dream gone gray Shaken down in the shade Of a hollow oak tree Over honey so sweet Fought a killer queen bee Brought me to my knee Oh I’ve seen a cloud rain down In the flash of a light I saw it all once
Woah I’ve been a-running wild Been a fool reconciled Mmm mm mm
When I die Take me the long way home Lay me down in the snow Where the sparrow might go Where the hollow oaks fold Into a cradle in time To make a nest from bone Woah I saw but I went blind Now we know what we know We’ll see it all go

The chorus of "Voulez-vous coucher avec moi ce soir" in "Lady Marmalade" is French for "Do you want to sleep with me tonight?" When Labelle performed it on television, they had to change it to "Voulez-vous danser avec moi ce soir" (Do you want to dance with me tonight?).
