Down

verse 1:
Mama, this old world has got me down.
Mama, this old world, just like my head, keeps spinning 'round.
I've been drunk and I've been dreaming a sweet sound
But I'm just trying to get my feet back on the ground.

verse 2:
Mama, this old rain's near got me drowned.
Mama, this old rain, just like my tears, keeps coming down.
I've been weeping, wailing, waiting for a sound,
I'm just rying to get my feet back on the ground.

Chorus:
I've been up, and I've been down
I've been around, I've been lost, and I've been found
I've been trying to get my feet back on the ground
and I've been down

verse 3:
Mama, this old ship's done run aground.
Mama, this old ship, just like my mind, is going southbound.
I've been shipping out and steaming towards the sound
I'm just rying to get my feet back on the ground.
