"When I'm Up I Can't Get Down" as written by Ian Telfer, John Jones and Alan Prosser....
I am the fountain of affection
The instrument of joy
To keep the good times rolling
I'm the boy, I'm the boy

I say the world will be our oyster
you can put your trust in me
We'll keep the good times rolling,
Wait and see, wait and see
Wait and see …

Exaltation
Sweet disintegration
A few discolourations
When it comes on strong;

Up is what he chooses
The kisses and the bruises
There's nothing he refuses

When it comes along,
it comes along
And I am lifted
I am lifted, I am lifted

When I'm up I can't get down,
Can't get down, can't get level
When I'm up I can't get down,
Get my feet back on the ground

When I'm up I can't get down,
Can't get down, can't get level
When I'm up I can't get down,
Get my feet back on the ground

Something to blind him
Something to wind him up
Won't take long to find him
And it comes along;

Wise guys are grinning
Streetlights are spinning
The night is just beginning

And it comes on strong
And I am lifted.
I am lifted, I am lifted

When I'm up I can't get down,
Can't get down, can't get level
When I'm up I can't get down,
Get my feet back on the ground

When I'm up I can't get down,
Can't get down, can't get level
When I'm up I can't get down,
Get my feet back on the ground
