I used to walk
Slowly down the staircase
But recently I learned a faster way
Well I sit upon the handrail
And now I'm slidin' down
Down that spiral staircase round & round

And I'll keep slidin' down that staircase
Until I hit the ground
Slidin' down that staircase
Round & round
Well my speed keeps on increasing
And I keep headin' down
Down that spiral staircase round & round

I used to see
The scenery so clearly
Well I really used to enjoy the view
Now it just passes by me
And the wind, it is a howlin'
As I ride that staircase round & round

I know someday
I'll fall on my face
Well I know I'll reach the bottom of that staircase
Well I can't enjoy the ride
And I can't hear pleasant sound
As I plummet down that staircase round & round
