Me no bubblicious
Me smoke heavy tar
Me be groovin' slowly where you are
Notify your next of kin
'Cause you're never coming back
I've been dropping beats since Back in Black

And we'll paint by numbers
'Til something sticks
Don't mind doing it for the kids
(So come on) jump on board
Take a ride (yeah)
(You'll be doin' it all right)
Jump on board feel the high
'Cause the kids are alright

You've got a reputation
Well I guess that can be explored
You're dancing with the chairman of the board
Take a ride on my twelve cylinder symphony
But if you got other plans
The purpose of a woman is to love her man

And we'll paint by numbers
'Til something sticks
Don't mind doing it for the kids
(So come on) jump on board
Take a ride (yeah)
(Doin' it all right)
Jump on board feel the high
'Cause the kids are alright

I'm gonna give it all of my loving
It's gonna take up all of my love
I'm gonna give it all of my loving
It's gonna take up all of my love
I'm gonna give it all of my loving
It's gonna take up all of my love
I'm gonna give it all of my loving
It's gonna take up all of my love

Come down from the ceiling
I didn't mean to get so high
I couldn't do what I wanted to do
When my lips were dry
You can't just up and leave me
I'm a singer in a band
Well I like drummers baby
You're not my bag

Jump on board
Take a ride, yeah
(You'll be doin' it all right)
Jump on board feel the high, yeah

Jump on board
Take a ride, yeah
(You'll be doin' it all right)
Jump on board feel the high, yeah

I'm an honorary Sean Connery, born '74
There's only one of me
Single-handedly raising the economy
Ain't no chance of the record company dropping me
Press be asking do I care for sodomy
I don't know, yeah, probably
I've been looking for serial monogamy
Not some bird that looks like Billy Connolly
But for now I'm down for ornithology
Grab your binoculars, come follow me

    General Commentinteresting fact about this song:

    robbie really fancies kylie minogue. one night, he was lying in bed and decided to ring her and ask her to come round (for obvious purposes). however, she was in bed with her boyfriend at the time, which really embarassed robbie. to make up for it, she said she'd duet with him. they joined together, and came up with this. 100% true.

    General CommentThat was interesting background.
    I think the song itself has no meaning at all! It just sounds right, but Robbie must have written anything that came to his mind while thinking about Kylie.

    General CommentDoes anyone know what the backing lyrics are that Robbie (?) sings during two of this song's choruses? I know they exist but can't find them anywhere. The best I can make out is something like "Taking me over... deeper mystery (?) ...making me want you" over and over.

    General CommentOk, read it like this: we don't mind doing "it" for the kids, Geddit??? Gettin it on in other words, and if they need an excuse they'll do it for the kids. Quite clever actually. As for the interesting fact above, sounds like more Robbie Williams propaganda trying to convince us that he's not gay.

    General CommentI heard it about doing coke, kids (Baby powder) and doing it all night the give away is Come down from the ceiling
    I didn't mean to get so high
    I couldn't do what I wanted to do
    When my lips were dry

    Even if this is wrong still a great tune

    General CommentThis song is, most definitely, about sex! I mean come on, the lyrics say it all (in quite a clever way i might add) but the video just confirms it!!

    i couldnt do what i wanted to do when my lips were dry - giving head.

    you cant just up and leave me i'm a singer in a band (and that section) - the typical getting with someone in a band for the night and then being left. however this has a twist and the girl is leaving the star.

    dont mind doing it for the kids - self explanitory?!?!



    it definitely about sex.

    there are SO many references in the song.

    General CommentRobbie is roman catholic, or has some sort of roman catholic influence. "Through it all, she offers me protection" - "Shee" is Mother Mary.

    The Catholic church forbids the use of contraception. The only legitimate purpose of sex is in order to procreate - anything else is the sin of Lust. But that's ok: he doesn't mind doing it in order to have children. So jump on board!
