Sitting On Top Of The World
The Spinners Lyrics


Some people say what goes around comes around
Don't pick me up with love just to put me down
If this is true what they say, then why do they let love slip away?
So just give your love and I'll give mine, yeah

If there are greener fields and a higher ground
Then what makes loving red change to hazy brown?
When love is put to the test, it somehow weeds out the worse from best
Or maybe the best will pass you by, 'cause we're just

Sitting on top of the world
You and me baby
Twiddling our thumbs and thinking about it
Sitting on top of the world

Baby, without your love
Without your love
Without your love, baby

Living ain't all
All that it seems
Living ain't all, no
All that it seems, yeah oh oh

Some people think that we live upon a cloud
They just don't can't seem to hear though I'm speaking loud
Though some of those things are true
You can't always tell what one might do
When things of the future are right now
'Cause we're just

Sitting on top of the world
You and me baby
Twiddling our thumbs
And just thinking about it

Uh-huh, without your love
Without your love
Without your love
Living ain't all, no, no, no
It ain't all that it seems girl, no, no, no
All I ever want from you
Is your tender love, you see, girl
I've been so blue before

See girl, I'm a simple man
Doing the best I can to make you see that I love you, girl
I need your love
'Cause living ain't all, hey, hey
I got to tell you about it
I, I got to let you know
Can we sit on top of the world?
Twiddle our thumbs just little bit
Just little bit, babe
Twiddle our thumbs just a little bit
Watch the world go around, we'll see ourselves in love
Whoa, uh-oh, see baby, love is more than living
It's the feeling that you get
When two people are giving

Lyrics to: "Sitting on top of the world"
Written by: J. Jefferson – B. Hawes & C. Simmons

Some people say what goes around comes around.
Don’t pick me up with love just to put me down.
If this is true what they say? Then why do they let love slip away?
So Just give your love and i’ll give mine.

If there are greener fields and a higher ground?
Then what makes loving red change to hazy brown?
When love is put to the test, it somehow weeds out the worse from best.
Or maybe the best will pass you by cause we're just


Chorus

Sitting on top of the world,
you and me baby
Twiddling our thumbs and thinking about it.
Sitting on top of the world


Baby, Without your love,
Without your love,
Without your love, babee

Living ain’t all,
all that it seems
Living ain’t all, no
All that it seems



Some people think that we live upon a cloud.
They just don’t can't seem to hear though i’m speaking loud.
Though some of those things are true,
You can’t always tell what one might do
. when things of the future are right now
Cause we're just…

Chorus
Sitting On Top Of The World
you and me baby
Twiddling Our Thumbs
And Just Thinking About It


Uh Huh, Without your love,
Without your love,
Without your love,
Living ain’t all, naw naw naw
it ain't all that it seems girl. No, no ,no
All I ever want from you
is your tender love, you see girl,
i’ve been so blue before.


See girl I’m a simple man
Doing the best I can to make you see
that I love you girl.
I needa your love
Cause living ain’t all…hey hey
I got to tell you about it.
I, I got to let you know.
Can we sit on top of the world?
Twiddle our thumbs just little bit,
just little bit babe…
Twiddle our thumbs just little bit,
watch the world go around we'll see ourselves in love
Whoa Uh Oh! See baby, love is more than living.
It’s the feeling that you get,
when two people are giving.

Thank you for the lyrics Bruce

Lonnie Cook

You are welcome, it was a pleasure for me to converse with one of the writers, Bruce Hawes, he sent them to me.

thomas t

Thanks for the lyrics, man.

William Ryan

Great song!

Nick Coleworld

I'm 20 jamming this, there is still hope out

TheUmmahFightCamp

+Nick Coleworld Yes sir! I teach the Fighting arts and train to some rap because a good beat takes us beyond fatigue. Problem is guys like Talib and others don't get the credit.

Nick Coleworld

+TheUmmahFightCamp the good rappers cool , but this is where it's at

TheUmmahFightCamp

+Nick Coleworld Just came by this to reminisce! Saw your post. Great to see it "youngin". There IS hope!

Bruce A. Hawes

There was a special kind of musical magic in the way +The Spinners sang the songs written by me and my songwriting partners, Charles Simmons, and Joe Jefferson. Every-time we walked in to Thom Bell's office with the next batch of songs that we would write for The Spinners next album, Thom perked up and began plotting out his production for them. Thank you everyone for your wonderful comments. And thank you +Lonnie Cook for your support of our music work together. You are a treasured friend....
