Songtekst

You must be a special lady (Billy, you sing the first verse)
(Come on, Herb, sing, sing it, man)
And a very exciting girl (Al, bring that bass out, man) (Hey man, I'll bring it out a little bit more)
You gotta be a special lady (Let's get down once more, come on)
'Cause you got me sittin' on top of the world
Sittin' on top of the world

Somehow I knew it would be you
To change my gray skies to blue
It was strange when you called my name
Ever since that day I haven't been the same, ooh

Before I met you, my sun didn't want to shine
Then all the warmth suddenly slipped up from behind
Pop (Pop) went the reason in my mind

You must be a special lady
And a very exciting girl (Ooh, so exciting)
You gotta be a special lady (What a lady)
'Cause you got me sittin' on top of the world
Sittin' on top of the world

I was like a song so out of key
Then you came and gave my soul a melody
???For instance, you're pullin' me through???
I always lost but now I win with you

Before I met you, my sun didn't want to shine
Then all the warmth suddenly slipped up from behind
Pop (Pop) went the reason in my mind

You must be a special lady (I got a lady)
And a very exciting girl (So exciting, woo)
You gotta be a special lady (What a lady)
'Cause you got me sittin' on top of the world (Oh...)
Sittin' on top of the world

Woo, what lady
Oh
Ooh...

Sittin' on top of the world
Sittin' on top of the world

Before I met you, my sun didn't want to shine
Then all the warmth suddenly slipped up from behind
Pop (Pop) went the reason in my mind

You must be a special lady
And a very exciting girl (So exciting, ooh)
You gotta be a special lady
'Cause you got me sittin' on top of the world (Ooh...)
Sittin' on top of the world

You must be a special lady
And a very exciting girl (Ooh, what a lady)
You gotta be a special lady (Gettin' down, Billy Brown)
(Alright, Harry, Ray)
'Cause you got me sittin' on top of the world
Sittin' on top of the world

You must be a special lady (Ooh, ooh)
And a very exciting girl (Oh, girl, oh, girl)
You gotta be a special lady
'Cause you got me sittin' on top of the world
