Skyscraper

Composer: Todd Rundgren
Duration: 4:06
Why don't you come on down from your skyscraper?
Why don't you come on down and join the party
Everybody from the hood is all here
We singin' oldies and drinkin' cold beer
So won't you come on down from your skyscraper?

Seen you riding around in your Escalade
Made all your bones but you never paid any attention
To the other dimension
You got a solid gold grill and an Armani suit
Big bodyguard and a haughty attitude

But what goes up comes down sooner or later
Think twice before you reach the elevator

Why don't you come on down from your skyscraper?
Why don't you come on down and join the party, 
Brothers and sisters, strangers and cousins
We playing' volleyball and doin' the dozens
So won't you come on down from your skyscraper?

You feel safe and secure in your castle in the sky
You don't have to be afraid of the average guy down below ya
Come on down and we'll show ya
You can keep all your money cause the party is free
We could be friends if you want to be
Because a good life spent/lived in an ivory tower
Don't mean a thing without some people power
