  • She was a happy child
    Funny and bright and wild
    And all of the grown-ups agreed
    She was "Most Likely To Succeed
    In Ruling the World!"

    Now she calls you on the phone
    She's never there alone
    Who is he, why is he there, that man?
    She steals everything she can
    Easily buy it - "Mother,
    Can you send some cash?"

    Here, World Domination Rules
    Get in line with these fools
    We'll show you how much it costs
    Twice as much as we've lost
    This is no way to live
    And I have no more to give

    Til she's got her
    Feet On The Ground
    Life is a merry-go-round
    Taking her up so high
    The angels cry
    She's got her
    Feet On The Ground

    Life is a merry-go-round
    Taking her up so high
    The angels cry
    The story goes on and on
    Nobody's right or wrong

    There somebody's aunt
    Somebody's dad,
    They spent the last dollar they had
    Trying to bring someone home
    You, you call her on the phone
    You're always here alone.

    A daily reminder of what it's cost
    How much you've given,
    How much you've lost
    Trying to save her-
    I'll just send you the cash.

    Now world domination's lost.
    And this is what it costs.
    Twice as much as we've had
    But daddy, it's not that bad
    How does she survive
    Why is she left alive?

    Til she's got her
    Feet on the ground
    Life is a merry-go-round
    Taking her up so high
    The angels cry

    But she's gonna get her
    Feet On The Ground
    Life is a merry-go-round
    Taking her up so high
    That you hear the angels cry Writer/s: RICKIE LEE JONES
