You Can’t Think Straight with Your Heels Above Your Head

by Marty Nelson

c 2012

 

Uh huh, Uh huh.

The day I saw your pretty face for the first time

I fell so deep in love.

And when you smiled and said, “Hello” to me

I nearly choked when I swallowed my gum.

 

I wasn’t too shy, so I asked you out

And you said “Why not? Let’s go!”

So we both locked hands with a night-time grin

And we headed off down the road.

 

You got me upside down and turned around like a geek at a medicine show.

There’ve been days of trust when we loved too much.

And you can’t think straight with your heels above your head. Oh, no. Oh no

Uh huh, Uh huh.

 

We couldn’t spend enough time together

We’d laugh and dance all night

You told me how you loved to touch my hair

And  I dove right into your eyes.  

 

Well one thing led to another

And we decided to merge our homes

So we found a little place with just enough space

That we could call our own.

 

You got me upside down and turned around like a geek at a medicine show.

There’ve been days of trust when we loved too much.

And you can’t think straight with your heels above your head. Oh, no. Oh, no.

 

Well . . . Now the first time livin’ with the opposite sex

Can be a journey to a different world.

There’ll be bathroom rules and remote control duels

That’ll make your straight hairs curl.

 

Scat

Take it baby.

Yeah

Rip it!

Uh huh, Uh huh.

Uh huh, Uh huh.

 

Well the time’s gone by and we’ve both survived

And we did it without a scratch.

It took a little while and a delicate style

But we finally found the match.

 

Everybody’s got their own little secrets

And  I got somethin’ to say -

Despite the toilet seat trials and the stockings in the shower

I wouldn’t trade out a single day. No, no.

 

You got me upside down and turned around like a geek at a medicine show.

There’ve been days of trust when we loved too much.

And you can’t think straight with your heels above your head.

You got me upside down and turned around like a geek at a medicine show.

There’ve been days of trust when we loved too much.

And you can’t think straight

You can’t think straight.

You can’t think straight with your heels above your head. Oh, no. No No.

No. . .no.

Yeah

Don’t you know that I love it.

Play it again, baby. Yeah.

Rip it!

Ooh

Yeah

Uh huh. Uh Huh.

Uh huh. Uh Huh.

Uh huh. Uh Huh
