  • Yeah, Robin Thicke
    You know how it goes

    Come on come on
    Now you feeling like a pimp,
    You got everything you want, no wonder
    Come on come on
    'Cause you never gave up,
    Now you singing that song all summer
    I'm on top of the world, on top of the world
    I'm on top of the world, on top of the world
    I'm on top of the world, on top of the world
    I'm on top of the world, top of the world

    She was a little girl picked on in school
    Yeah she had funny teeth
    All the kids called her tooth head
    Years later when her moms got sick,
    She did everything she could, but mama wasn't rich
    She didn't stop, worked ten different jobs yeah
    That put her through community college
    Waitress, retail, hot dog on a stick
    Telling herself that it won't end like this
    Now she the boss, she the boss, she the boss
    You see her riding up, yeah you know what it cost
    Now she the one with the smile on her face
    'Cause no one gave it to her, she earned that feeling

    Come on come on
    Now you feeling like a pimp,
    You got everything you want, no wonder
    Come on come on
    'Cause you never gave up,
    Now you singing that song all summer
    I'm on top of the world, on top of the world
    I'm on top of the world, on top of the world
    I'm on top of the world, on top of the world
    I'm on top of the world, top of the world

    Now she wanna find love, and she can
    Somebody who can hold umbrellas in the rain
    But she's a little hardcore with the pros,
    Could be goodbye goodbye before it's hello hello
    Before you say a word, better have a breathe
    Sitting with mine, if you have it ooh
    I'm a sometime, but she's a lifestyle
    I got a big hammer, but baby's a hard rock

    Come on come on
    Now you feeling like a pimp,
    You got everything you want, no wonder
    Come on come on
    'Cause you never gave up,
    Now you singing that song all summer
    I'm on top of the world, on top of the world
    I'm on top of the world, on top of the world
    I'm on top of the world, on top of the world
    I'm on top of the world, top of the world

    (Baby) on top of it, (Baby) on top of it,
    (Baby) she's on top of it, (Baby) on top of it

    Yeah sometimes that's just how it goes
    Now she well paid first class top grade
    Go to sleep by herself only with the front page
    Dreaming of the one thing she ain't got yet
    That's somebody to hold when the sun sets
    She start taking them pills just to feel good,
    It's hard enough to be what she once was, keep it real
    But she remembers how tough it was to get her
    She can't be so hard on herself, yeah

    You need a good time baby girl let it go
    You need a good time baby girl let it go
    You still so young, good times, let it go
    You still so young, good times, let it go

    Come on come on
    Now you feeling like a pimp,
    You got everything you want, no wonder
    Come on come on
    'Cause you never gave up,
    Now you singing that song all summer
    I'm on top of the world, on top of the world
    I'm on top of the world, on top of the world
    I'm on top of the world, on top of the world
    I'm on top of the world, top of the world Writer/s: JAMES D. GASS, ROBIN A. THICKE
