High-Low Song

  • (Tom Gala)

    And there's a low low
    A middle low
    And there's a high low, a high low
    And there's a low middle
    A middle middle
    There's a high middle, there's a high middle
    There's a low high
    A middle high
    And there's a high high, a high high
    They're calling you high, calling you low
    Every damn thing in between

    If you go round calling folk names they will get mad at you
    If you go round calling folk names that they don't want you to
    There's people in the papers, and hey, they're on the radio
    Sayin' if you've got money you're high
    But if you ain't got money you're low

    If the baby is born it's one of the most important things in this world
    People go walking round proud, sayin', I had a boy, had a girl
    Imagine some guy coming by, sayin', Hey, little baby, you know
    If you've got money you're high
    But if you ain't got money you're low

    Take a bite from your apple, and then something makes you squirm
    So you look at the place where you bit, you see a great big worm
    If the worm is whole you can laugh, it's okay, you know
    But if the worm is bitten in half
    Then brother, you are feeling low

    (as sung by Iain MacKintosh)
