Lyrics

I've been around and I've seen some things
People moving faster than the speed of sound
Faster than the speeding bullet
People livin' like Superman, all day and all night

And I won't say if it's wrong or I won't say if it's right
I'm pretty fast myself
But I do have some advice to pass along
Right here in the words of this song

You better not look down
If you want to keep on flyin'
Put the hammer down
Keep it full speed ahead

You better not look back
Or you might just wind up cryin'
You can keep it movin'
If you don't look down

An old girl friend of mine
Showed up the other day
That girl had lived in love and for love
And over love and under love all of her life

If the arrows from Cupid's bow
That had passed through her heart
Had been sticking out of her body
She would have looked like a porcupine

And she asked me
"B B do you think I've lived my life all wrong?
And I said, "The only advice I have to pass along
Is concealed in the chorus of this song"

Girl better not look down
If you want to keep on flyin'
Put the hammer down
Keep it full speed ahead

Better not look back
Or you might just wind up cryin'
You can keep it movin'
If you don't look down

I was walkin' down the street
At sunrise one mornin' in London, England
And there was a very large Rolls Royce limousine
Pullin' slowly along the street

And in that Rolls Royce was the Queen of England
Looking tired, just got back from a party
And the Queen leaned out and she said
"Aren't you B B King?

She said, "Oh B B, sometimes its so hard
To pull things together
Could you tell me what you think I ought to do?"
And I said

You better not look down
If you want to keep on flyin'
Put the hammer down
Keep it full speed ahead

Better not look back
Or you might just wind up cryin'
You can keep it movin'
If you don't look down

You better not look down
If you want to keep on flyin'
Put the hammer down
Keep it full speed ahead

Better not look back
Or you might just wind up cryin'
You can keep it movin'
If you don't look down

You better not look down
If you want to keep on flyin'
