I'm the elevator man
I take people up and down all day
Some get out, others stay
Some get off, some go all the way
I'm the elevator man
I see lots of different faces
I see losers going nowhere
I see winners going places
I take them up and I bring them down

Everybody goes up and everybody comes down
Everybody goes up and everybody comes down

Dirty old man with wandering eyes
Looking at bums and tits and thighs
Macho man with rub-on tan
He's the man with wandering hands
People with dandruff, spots and pimples
People with warts and scars and dimples
They push by, don't give a damn
I'm just the elevator man.

I see them go up and I see them come down

Everybody goes up but everybody comes down
Everybody goes up but everybody comes down

I see the timid and the insecure
I see the confident and self assured
They all get out when they reach their floor
But I always know I'm gonna see them once more

Because everybody goes up and everybody goes down
Everybody goes up but everybody comes down
Everybody goes up and everybody comes down
Everybody goes up

Yeah

I'm the elevator man
Lots of people pass me by
No one thinks I give a damn
I'm just the elevator man
I hear confessions, watch expressions
Silent madness and depression
I hear rumours, conversations
Little facts and relevations
Because what goes up has got to come down

Everybody goes up and everybody comes down
Everybody goes up but everybody comes down

Everybody goes up and everybody comes down
Everybody goes up and everybody comes down

Everybody goes up and everybody comes down
Everybody goes up

Yeah
