Journey Called Bernie

It's time to climb the stairs...
No looking back, no heart attack.
The stairs. We have to climb the stairs.
Though danger still lurks there,
Trust us, we will beware.
It's up to us,
We have no bus,
Just have our guts.
And our guts say

I'm on the first step.
I'm on the second step.
I'm on the third step.
I'm on the fourth step.
I'm on the fifth step.
I'm on the sixth step.
What waits for us on the seventh step?
What will we find beyond the sixth?
What lurks for us on the seventh step?
Hope we don't get into another fix...

It was just another step.
Just another step.
Hey, let's climb!
Eight... nine... ten... eleven... twelve...

I've been walking the stairs, looking for love
But I didn't find love on the twenty-first step,
And I didn't find love on the seventeenth step,
And I didn't find love on the fourteenth step...
Hello... hello...

I love the same girl that my friend does.
But he doesn't love her half as well.
I love the same girl that my friend does,
But his love is just a bowl of hell,
Bowl of hell,
Bowl of hell,
Bowl of hell,
Bowl of hell...

It seems I'm in a pickle with these gentlement of leisure.
If i pick one over the other one he'll surely have a seizure.
It seems I'm in a quandry,
So I'll simply do my laundry,
For as my mother often mused,
Better clean than confused.
ha ha ha ha ha ha ha...

Friendship, you gotta have friendship.
The first mate and captain on the friend-ship.
No other way to be,
As long as I got you, and you got me.
No Dames!

Look! We're close to the top of the stairs!
The end of our journey,
our journey called Bernie,
Bernie on top of the Stairs...
Bernie we love ya,
And now we're above ya,
And Bernie you weren't always fair,
But now that we've met ya,
We're damned if we'll let ya,
Get us to move from the top of the stairs,
Get us to move from the top of the stairs,
Get us to move from the top of the stairs,
To get to the top of the,
move to the top of the stairs...
