In the Out Door

Words and music by Kristin Lems

1.) Ever since they could remember

She'd been quite a curious child,

In fact, the best word for her was WILD!

She was the kind of student

Who could drive a teacher bananas

She wandered off, she wouldn't learn grammar

So they'd shake their heads and say....


You're going in the out door, up the down staircase

and what's even more, your feet aren't on the floor

you're walking on the ceiling - isn't she a sad case?

Backwards, backwards right to left

and upside down forever more,

upside down forever more. 


2.) She was the kind of woman

who wouldn't take no for an answer. 

She'd make her odds, she'd take her chances

she'd often get in trouble

she would bypass the proper channels

she would do whatever came natural

and so naturally they'd say


3.)  The people who accused her

they never took the time to explore her

She didn't care - they usually bored her! 

She often thought of flying

far beyond the limits of reason,

far beyond the range of their teasing,

and breezing by, she'd say,

"I'm going in the out door, up the down staircase....."


Upside down forever more!
