Life's great, life's grand,
Future all planned,
No more clouds in the sky,
How'm I ridin'? I'm ridin' high!

Someone I love,
Mad for my love,
So long, Jonah goodbye!
How'm I ridin'? I'm ridin' high!

Floating on a starlit ceiling,
Doting on the cards I'm dealing,
Gloating because I'm feeling
So hap-hap-happy I'm slap-happy!

So ring bells, sing songs,
Blow horns, beat gongs,
Our love never will die,
How'm I ridin'? I'm ridin' high!

Someone I love,
Mad for my love,
So long, Jonah goodbye!
How'm I ridin'?  I'm ridin' high!

Floating on a starlit ceiling,
Doting on the cards I'm dealing,
Gloating because I'm feeling
So hap-hap-happy I'm slap-happy!

So ring bells, sing songs,
Blow horns, beat gongs,
Our love never will die,
How'm I ridin'?  I'm ridin' high!
