Lazy boys and shy Dianes
One at a time, single file
They counted the low numbers as they walked by
I count a high number
A low number
Among the slow numbers

The number four means nothing to me But the number four means death to Chinese
Number seven is lucky in Japan
Here we don't give a damn
But on the elevator, no thirteenth floor
On the elevator, no thirteenth floor
Thirteenth going up
Going up
Going up

Relaxing as I wait in line
Some of the numbers lose their smiles
'Specially the numbers one through nine
Because they're only seating parties of ten or higher
For the dancing, the question mark sticker
And the mermaid kickers

The number four means nothing to me But the number four means death to Chinese
Number seven's lucky in Japan
Here we don't give a damn
But on the elevator, no thirteenth floor
On the elevator, no thirteenth floor
Going up
Going up
Going up

    General CommentIsn’t it untrue that “we don’t give a damn” about seven? Regardless, I like the saucy laziness of this song.
