There were all of those things you weren't supposed to do
Yes, and my my my my my, they were talking to you
There were all of those words that you shouldn't have said
Like a dagger thrown, carry weight of lead

Livin' on the high note
Livin' on the high note
Livin' on the high, high, high, high, high, high note

Listen now that it's known and the way has been shown
Yes my, my, my, how you have grown
Gather all of the rain and every ounce of pain
Wash the dirt and dust down the drain

It's livin' on the high note
Livin' on the high note
Livin' on the high, high, high, oh, high, high note
It's livin' on the high note
Livin' on the high note
Livin' on the high, high, high, mmm, high, high note

And if you gotta sing low
Sometimes the way to go

(Joe) Joe
(He looked over at Dave) Looked over at Dave
(He was thinkin' he had it made) He was thinkin', he was thinkin', oh, he had it made
(Dave) Dave
(Looked over at Paul) looked on over at Paul
(He was thinkin' he had it all) He was thinkin', oh, he had it all
(Paul) Paul
(He looked over at Steve) Looked over at Steve
(Who's steadily moving) Moving, moving (towards what he believes) Hey, mmm-hmm, mmm-hmm

He was livin' on the high note
Livin' on the high note
He was livin' on the high, high, high, high note
He was livin' on the high note, high note
Oh, no
He was livin' on the (high, high, high, high note)

Livin' on the high note
Livin' on the high note
He was livin' on the high, high, high, high note
He was livin' on the high note
Livin' on the high note
Livin' on the high, high, high, mmm, high, high note

I love a-livin' on the high note
