Elevator Man

This song is by Oingo Boingo and appears on the album Boi-ngo (1987) and on the live album Boingo Alive (1988).

Who's goin' down?
Who's goin' down-who's goin' down?
I ride my elevator
Through the shafts of your heart
When you climb aboard, baby
There's no getting off

I'm a silent operator
Won't you please take my hand?
I am so polite-I'm the elevator man

Friction and harmony
Who's gonna ride with me
I'm the elevator man

Who's going down, who's comin' with me?
Who wants to take a chance
On a piece of abstract reality?
It's only just a dance
Won't you come and ride with the elevator man
Who's going down, yeah-movin' slow without a sound

Who's going down?

Please, pretty baby-won't you come to me
Won't you let me your daddy-come and sit here on my knee
And tell your sugar daddy-all of your fears
Cry for me, darlin'-let me taste your tears
As they roll down your face and onto the sand
We're going down together; I'm the elevator man

Movin' slow without a sound
Goin' up and goin' down
Take an intermission while the bird is in the hand
It's worth two in the bush-give yourself a push
Won't you come and ride with the elevator man

Who's goin' down?

Say goodbye to hate, goodbye to love
Goodbye to the world that you used to know above
Goodbye to your mama and your daddy, too
We're goin' to a place that you never even knew

Movin' slow without a sound
Goin' up and goin' down
Take an intermission while the bird is in the hand
It's worth two in the bush-give yourself a push
Gonna take a ride with the elevator man

Friction and harmony, who is gonna ride with me
Far across the ocean on a floating bed of sand
Eyes toward the empty sky
Searching for the big surprise

Who's gonna ride with the elevator man?
Who's goin' down, who's goin' down, who's going?
