"Sitting on Top of the World" as written by and Joseph Banks/hawes Jefferson....
Some people say what goes around comes around
Don’t pick me up with love just to put me down
If this is true what they say, then why do they let love slip away?
So just give your love and I’ll give mine, yeah

If there are greener fields and a higher ground
Then what makes loving red change to hazy brown?
When love is put to the test, it somehow weeds out the worse from best
Or maybe the best will pass you by, 'cause we're just

Sitting on top of the world
You and me baby
Twiddling our thumbs and thinking about it
Sitting on top of the world

Baby, without your love
Without your love
Without your love, baby

Living ain’t all
All that it seems
Living ain’t all, no
All that it seems, yeah oh oh

Some people think that we live upon a cloud
They just don’t can't seem to hear though I’m speaking loud
Though some of those things are true
You can’t always tell what one might do
When things of the future are right now
'Cause we're just

Sitting on top of the world
You and me baby
Twiddling our thumbs
And just thinking about it

Uh-huh, without your love
Without your love
Without your love
Living ain’t all, no, no, no
It ain't all that it seems girl, no, no, no
All I ever want from you
Is your tender love, you see, girl
I’ve been so blue before

See girl, I’m a simple man
Doing the best I can to make you see that I love you, girl
I need your love
'Cause living ain’t all, hey, hey
I got to tell you about it
I, I got to let you know
Can we sit on top of the world?
Twiddle our thumbs just little bit
Just little bit, babe
Twiddle our thumbs just a little bit
Watch the world go around, we'll see ourselves in love
Whoa, uh-oh, see baby, love is more than living
It’s the feeling that you get
When two people are giving
