Feet on the Ground lyrics

by

Rickie Lee Jones


[Verse 1]
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?"

[Pre-Chorus]
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

[Chorus]
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 (Life is a merry-go-round)
Taking her up so high
The angels cry

[Verse 2]
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, well 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

[Pre-Chorus]
Now world domination is lost
And this is what it cost
Twice as much as we had
But Daddy, it’s not that bad
But how does she survive
Why is she left alive?

[Chorus]
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 (Feet on the ground)
Life is a merry-go-round (Life is a merry-go-round)
Taking her up so high
The angels cry (Don't you hear the angels cry?)
She’s got her feet on the ground
(Gonna get her feet back on the ground)
Life is a merry-go-round (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

[Outro]
She’s got her feet on the ground (Have her feet on the ground)
Life is a merry-go-round (Life is a merry-go-round)
She’s got her feet on the ground (Life)
Life is a merry-go-round
She’s got her feet on the ground
Life is a merry-go-round
She’s got her feet on the ground
Life is a merry-go-round
She’s got her feet on the ground
Life is a merry-go-round
