I Prefer the Stairs

Kristin Lems
words and music by Kristin Lems c 1989 Kleine Ding Music (BMI)


For all who dislike waiting for an elevator....


1. Most of the time, I prefer the stairs

Down on the first floor, I leave all my troubles and cares

My feet are a thumpin as I climb toward the sky

It gets my heart pumping, a natural high…as I climb


2. Up to the landing, the second floor

No time for standing, I've gotta keep moving some more

A good pair of gym shoes is all I require

And a good set of lungs so that I won't get tired

Now higher….


3.  Up to the third floor, still goin strong

My friends on one waiting for the elevator to come along

I've bought a few minutes, I've had a good time

And I sing at the top of my lungs as I climb because


Most of the time I prefer the stairs,

Most of the time I prefer the stairs,

Most of the time….I prefer the stairs.
