Standing On The Top - Part 1 (Single Version)

Standing On The Top - Part 1 (Single Version)

The Temptations

Yi-yi-yi-yi-yi-yi-yi
When you're on the top
There's no place you can really go but down, down, down
People on the street congratulate you
They say they love the way you sound, well

When you're on the low
No one wants to chit or chat or even know your name
Your agent's never there
Your manager has ripped you off and gone somewhere
Standing on the top

Standing on the top, top
On the top getting down, yeah
Standing on the top (Yeah), top
On the top getting down, Temptations sing

Standing on the top, top
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Standing on the top, top
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

When you're on the top
Everyone you meet they want to be your long lost friend
They say how great you are, a superstar
But do you have any money to lend
(Hey, man, can you loan me a few bucks)

When you're on the low
Where do all the freaks and fancy people go, [I don't know] I don't know
People sit and stare
Askin' crazy questions, "Do you braid your hair" and "What's L-7 Square"

Standing on the top, top
On the top getting down, ho

Hey...hoo
Standing on the top, top
On the top getting down, down, down, down
Standing on the top (Sing)
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh (Well, well, well, well, well, well)
Standing on the top (Well)
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh (Standing on the top getting down)

Can you understand it [We understand it]
Can you understand it what I'm talkin' about
When I say that funk is here to stay [We understand it]
Can you understand it what I'm talkin' about
That funk is here to stay, oh [We understand it]
If you understand it say, "Yeah" {Yeah...yeah...}-a
