B.B. King

"Better Not Look Down - Single Version"

I've been around and I've seen some things
People moving faster than the speed of sound
Faster than the speeding bullet people living like Superman
All day and all night and I won't say if it's wrong or if it's right
I'm pretty fast myself but I do have some advice to pass along
Right here in the words of this song
You better not look down if you want to keep on flying
Put the hammer down keep it full speed ahead
You better not look back or you might just wind up crying
You can keep it moving if you don't look down
An old girl friend of mine showed up the other day
That girl had lived in love and for love
And over love, and under love all her life
If the arrows from cupids bow that had
Passed through her heart had been sticking
Out of her body she would have looked like
A porcupine, and she asked me
B.B. do you think I've lived my life all wrong?
And I said, The only advice I have to pass
Along is concealed in the chorus of this song
Girl, better not look down if you want to keep on flying
Put the hammer down keep it full speed ahead
Better not look back or you might just wind up crying
You can keep it moving if you don't look down
I was walking down the street at sunrise one morning
In London, England
And there was a very large Rolls Royce Limousine
Pulling slowly along the street
And in that Rolls Royce was the Queen of England
Looking tired, just got back from a party
And the Queen leaned out and she said, Aren't you B.B. King?
She said, Oh B.B., sometimes it's so hard to pull things together
Could you tell me what you think I ought to do? And I said
You better not look down if you want to keep on flying
Put the hammer down keep it full speed ahead
Better not look back or you might just wind up crying
You can keep it moving if you don't look down
You better not look down if you want to keep on flying
Put the hammer down keep it full speed ahead
You better not look back or you might just wind up crying
You can keep it moving if you don't look down
You better not look down if you want to keep on flying
Put the hammer down keep it full speed ahead
