B.b. King – Better Not Look Down Lyrics

I磛e been around and I磛e seen some things

People moving faster than the speed of sound

Faster than the speeding bullet

People living like Superman

All day and all night

And I won磘 say if it磗 wrong or if it磗 right

I磎 pretty fast myself

But I do have some advice to pass along

Along in the chorus of this song

Better not look down

If you want to keep on flying

Put the hammer down

Keep it full speed ahead

Better not look back

Or you might just wind up crying

You can keep it moving

If you don磘 look down

An old girl friend of mine showed up the other day

That girl have lived in love and for love

And over love, and under love all her life

If the arrows from cupid磗 bow that had

Passed through her heart had been sticking

Out of her body she would have looked like

A porcupine, and she asked me

B.B. do you think I磛e lived my life all wrong?

And I said: The only advice I have to pass

Along in the chorus of this song

Girl

Better not look down

If you want to keep on flying

Put the hammer down

Keep it full speed ahead

Better not look back

Or you might just wind up crying

You can keep it moving

If you don磘 look down

I was walking down the street at sunrise one morning

In London, England

And there was a very large Rolls Royce Limousine

Pulling slowly along the street

And in that Rolls Royce was the Queen of England

Looking tired

Just go back from a party, and the Queen leaned out and

She said: Aren磘 you B.B. King? She said:

Oh B.B., sometimes it磗 so hard to pull things together

Could you tell me what you think I ought to do?

And I said:

Better not look down

If you want to keep on flying

Put the hammer down

Keep it full speed ahead

Better not look back

Or you might just wind up crying

You can keep it moving

If you don磘 look down
