  • Dodo do do do dodo
    Do do dodo do dodo
    Dodo dodo do do

    Dodo do do do dodo
    Do do do do dodo do
    Dodo dodo dodo

    I'm too high
    I'm too high
    But I ain't touched the sky

    I'm too high
    I'm too high
    But I ain't touched the sky

    She's a girl in a dream
    She sees a four eyed cartoon monster on the T.V. screen
    She takes another puff and says "It's a crazy scene"
    That red is green
    And she's a tangerine

    I'm too high
    I'm too high
    But I ain't left the ground

    I'm too high
    I'm too high
    I hope I never ever come down

    She's the girl in her life
    But her world's a superficial paradise
    She had a chance to make it big more than once or twice
    But no dice
    She wasn't very nice

    Ooh

    Dodo do do do dodo
    Do do dodo do dodo
    Do do do do do do

    Dodo do do do dodo
    Do do dodo do dodo
    Dodo dodo dodo dodo dodo dodo

    I'm too high
    I'm too high
    I can't ever touch the sky

    I'm too high
    I'm so high
    I feel like I'm about to die

    She's a girl of the past
    I guess that I got to her at last
    A did you hear the news about the girl today
    She passed away
    What did her friend say

    They said she's too high
    Too high
    Can't hang around anyway

    Dodo do do do dodo
    Do do dodo do dodo
    Do do do
    Do do do do

  • Jgs from TorontoRe: Ed from Deal Kent’s comment - I say the same thing re: Jamiroquai but I use Stevie’s “Black Man” as the song example.
  • Ed from Deal Kent UkJamiroquai the UK funk band sounded like they based all their songs on this track.
