  • Lyrics: When pop flies popped up Someone else caught ‘em It was not me I was sittin’ on my bottom Sittin’ on the bench I was always too slow Ambition’s fine for a Hillary Rodham But that’s not me I was always on the bottom Always on the bottom That’s the place that I know Each Morning I wake up At the bottom of my bed I read the bottom of the cereal box I butter the bottom of my bread I don’t like heights I’m afraid of fallin’ So I stay low That’s my true callin’ I like it on the bottom That’s the place that I know For every mountain high There’s a valley sweet and low A place that’s sheltered from the storm While others struggle to climb I’m glad that I’m Down in the Valley keepin’ dry and warm I’m always on the bottom Always on the bottom Close to the ground, safe and low I’m always on the bottom That’s the place that I know I’m always on the bottom Always on the bottom What’s up top? Well, I don’t know ‘Cause I’m always on the bottom That’s the place that I know They say that cream will rise That may be so But it’s under our feet where diamonds grow If you’re always striving and reaching for the stars You might miss a shining diamond down below When the leaves turn yellow and brown in the Autumn They fall down, down to the bottom All around my feet – I’m kickin’ at gold With gravity holding me down I smile, I don’t frown ‘Cause I’m happy on the bottom I’m safe on the bottom Oh, I like it on the bottom You know I like to get down
