Malvina Reynolds: Song Lyrics and Poems  

Upside Down

Notes: words and music by Malvina Reynolds; copyright 1961 Schroder Music Company, renewed 1989.

When I stand with my upside down,
The whole world is upside down,
I live in Lopside Flopside Town
When I am upside down.
The world looks fine right side up,
The world looks like a buttercup,
But I like mine upside down,
Cup-side over in the clover,
Ev'rything's upside down.
