Top Of The World – Carpenters

Download Top of the World MIDI File

Carpenters were an American vocal and instrumental duo, consisting of siblings Karen and Richard Carpenter. Though often referred to by the public as The Carpenters, the duo’s official name on authorized recordings and press materials is simply “Carpenters”. During a period in the 1970s when louder and wilder rock was in great demand, Richard and Karen produced a distinctively soft musical style that made them among the best-selling music artists of all time.

“Top of the World” is a 1972 song by The Carpenters. Originally recorded for and released on the duo’s 1972 studio album A Song for You, the song topped the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart in late 1973, becoming the duo’s second U.S. #1 single. Originally intended to be only an album cut for the Carpenters, country singer Lynn Anderson covered the song and was the first to release it as a single. Her version nearly topped the U.S. country singles chart, reaching #2. Karen Carpenter re-recorded the song for the band’s first compilation as she was not quite satisfied with the original.

Lyrics

Boy you know you get me high
Won’t you take me for a ride
Tell me where you want to go, Ooooh
Tell me where you want to go, Ooooh

It’s The Cataracs

Yo, it’s that dancefloor – 808
She hit me like a 808
Have you all night, vodka straight
Bottles up, you and me
Me and you, on a trip
All night flight, girl let’s dip
Lickin’ my lips I’m in the zone
And I can’t really say what I’m sippin’ on

You taste good to me
Girls like you make history
Sure does sound like a hit to me
Now che-e-e-ck out this beat

CHORUS:

Now, you got it
You got it goin’ on, goin’ on, and on, and on, and on, and on
Boy you know you get me high
Won’t you take me for a ride
Tell me where you want to go, Ooooh
Tell me where you want to go,Ooooh
I’m your Bonnie, you’re my Clyde
I’ll be your “ride or die”
Tell me where you want to go, Ooooh
Tell me where you want to go, Ooooh

T-t-t-to the top of the world (x2)

Your daddy must have been a drug dealer (Why?)
‘Cause you dope
You the Bonnie to my Clyde, Juliet and Romeo
Your daddy must have been a drug dealer (Why?)
I don’t know, I’m just saying anything to get me up inside your throat
Is it workin’?
I’m just playin
Man this bottle got me sayin’
I don’t ever wanna lose, lose ya right now

[CHORUS]

T-t-t-to the top of the world

Tell me where you want to go (x4)

Where, you want, where you wanna go? (x4)

T-t-t-to the top of the world

It’s The Cataracs
