I had no premonition before this began, things were humming along, they were going to plan
They were going to plan, 'twas all tidy and neat, with the ground staying put down under my feet
And then from under my feet there was a shift and a shake, as the solid foundations were starting to break
Starting to break with convention whenever you're 'round, coz you're turning my world upside down.

You turn it upside down, and it's upside down, and you're turning my world upside down
You turn it upside down, and it's upside down, and you're turning my world upside down.

Well I could get my bearings if I could ease my mind, but I couldn't level off if I was so inclined
But now you're so inclined, just got to leave it to fate, now my brain and my limbs won't coordinate
And your coordinate axes, like nothing I've seen, I'm tumbling around like in a washing machine
And in that washing machine, the suds I'll drown, coz you're turning my world upside down.

You turn it upside down, and it's upside down, and you're turning my world upside down
You turn it upside down, and it's upside down, and you're turning my world upside down.

And through hell or high water, to hell with remorse, when faced with this dilemma gotta stray, of course,
But if you stray off course you'll end up in a hole, the horizon disappears, you tumble out of control
And now you're out of control, your senses askewed, gyroscopic with the lopsided attitude
But with that attitude, you deserve the renown, for turning my world upside down.

You turn it upside down, and it's upside down, you're turning my world upside down.
You turn it upside down, and it's upside down, you're turning my world upside down.
You turn it upside down, and it's upside down, and you're turning my world upside down.
You turn it upside down, and it's upside down, you're turning my world upside down.
