about

Mr. E wrote this song about the universal desire of kids to be up high with the grown ups they love. I love singing this song, by myself and with Mr. E.

Written by The Alphabeticians, published by Fish47 Music (BMI)

lyrics

Down, down, down, down
Always on the ground
I live on my knees
I see your shoes are checkered Vans
That's cool Spicoli
I learn to stand on my own too slowly

I wanna be up with daddy now
I wanna be up with daddy now
I wanna be high like the buzz of the bees
I just wanna see what everyone else sees

Fe fi fo no!
Don't send me to bed
You're watching basketball and calling all your friends
But I'm not sleepy
I swear that I'm not sleepy
I rub my eyes but I'm not sleepy
I (yawn) sleepy

I wanna be up with daddy now
I wanna be up with daddy now
I wanna be high like the buzz of the bees
I just wanna see what everyone else sees

My dad's so tall
He sees it all
When I'm up there
The air is rare
I fly

From my nest
This world's the best
So please excuse me
While I kiss the sky

Down, down, down, down
Still down on the ground
Still down on my knees
I see your shoes still checkered Vans
Still cool Spicoli
I learn to stand on my own still slowly

I wanna be up with daddy now
I wanna be up with daddy now
I wanna be high like the buzz of the bees
I just wanna see what everyone else sees
