about

Kids are little. Sometimes they want to be big, or at least be up high enough to see what the big people see.

lyrics

Down, down, down, down
Always on the ground
I live on my knees
I see your shoes are checkered Vans
That's cool Spicoli
I learn to stand on my own too slowly

I wanna be up with daddy now
I wanna be up with daddy now
I wanna be high like the buzz of the bees
I just wanna see what everyone else sees

Fe fi fo no!
Don't send me to bed
You're watching basketball and calling all your friends
But I'm not sleepy
I swear that I'm not sleepy
I rub my eyes but I'm not sleepy
I (yawn) sleepy

I wanna be up with daddy now
I wanna be up with daddy now
I wanna be high like the buzz of the bees
I just wanna see what everyone else sees

My dad's so tall
He sees it all
When I'm up there
The air is rare
I fly

From my nest
This world's the best
So please excuse me
While I kiss the sky

Down, down, down, down
Still down on the ground
Still down on my knees
I see your shoes still checkered Vans
Still cool Spicoli
I learn to stand on my own still slowly

I wanna be up with daddy now
I wanna be up with daddy now
I wanna be high like the buzz of the bees
I just wanna see what everyone else sees
