When pop flies popped up
Someone else caught ‘em
It was not me
I was sittin’ on my bottom
Sittin’ on the bench
I was always too slow

Ambition’s fine for a Hillary Rodham
But that’s not me
I was always on the bottom
Always on the bottom
That’s the place that I know

Each Morning I wake up
At the bottom of my bed
I read the bottom of the cereal box
I butter the bottom of my bread

I don’t like heights
I’m afraid of fallin’
So I stay low
That’s my true callin’
I like it on the bottom
That’s the place that I know

For every mountain high
There’s a valley sweet and low
A place that’s sheltered from the storm
While others struggle to climb
I’m glad that I’m
Down in the Valley keepin’ dry and warm

I’m always on the bottom
Always on the bottom
Close to the ground, safe and low
I’m always on the bottom
That’s the place that I know
I’m always on the bottom
Always on the bottom
What’s up top? Well, I don’t know
‘Cause I’m always on the bottom
That’s the place that I know

They say that cream will rise
That may be so
But it’s under our feet where diamonds grow
If you’re always striving and reaching for the stars
You might miss a shining diamond down below

When the leaves turn yellow and brown in the Autumn
They fall down, down to the bottom
All around my feet – I’m kickin’ at gold

With gravity holding me down
I smile, I don’t frown
‘Cause I’m happy on the bottom
I’m safe on the bottom
Oh, I like it on the bottom
You know I like to get down
