Song Lyric Sunday (19 July 2020) – In the Patisserie

Last week, Jim (NewEpicAuthor over at A Unique Title For Me) set the old elements (my selection) as the theme. This week, he gives us the topic of cake.

Well, as soon as I heard about cakes this week, it started off a train of thought.. I almost chose The King of Wishful Thinking, from the movie Pretty Woman, because,,,,me and cake…that’s me!

But back down on earth, I came up with one this week from the Motown stable – there’s still a cakey link, though. We all know Diana Ross, right? Well, this is one of her later recordings, actually written by a couple of band-members of Chic, Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards, and recorded by Ross in 1980.

This was a big hit, reaching #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, #1 in a host of other countries worldwide, and #2 in the UK. In the UK, it was Ross’s biggest hit since I’m Still Waiting, way back in 1971, and was kept off top spot by ABBA’s Winner Takes It All. So I hope this one brings back a few memories, this is Upside Down. A big shout-out for Eighties hair!

I said upside down
You’re turning me
You’re giving love instinctively
Around and round you’re turning me


Upside down
Boy, you turn me
Inside out
And round and round
Upside down
Boy, you turn me
Inside out
And round and round

Instinctively you give to me
The love that I need
I cherish the moments with you
Respectfully I say to thee
I’m aware that you’re cheatin’
When no one makes me feel like you do

Upside down
Boy, you turn me
Inside out
And round and round
Upside down
Boy, you turn me
Inside out
And round and round

I know you got charm and appeal
You always play the field
I’m crazy to think you’re all mine
As long as the sun continues to shine
There’s a place in my heart for you
That’s the bottomline

Upside down
Boy, you turn me
Inside out
And round and round
Upside down
Boy, you turn me
Inside out
And round and round

Instinctively you give to me
The love that I need
I cherish the moment with you
Respectfully I see to thee
I’m aware that you’re cheatin’
But no one makes me feel like you do

Upside down
Boy, you turn me
Inside out
And round, round
Upside down
Boy, you turn me
Inside out
And round and round

Upside down
Boy, you turn me
Inside out
And round and round
Upside down
Boy, you turn me
Inside out
And round, round

Upside down you’re turning me
You’re giving love instinctively
Around and round you’re turning me
I say to thee respectfully

Upside down you’re turning me
You’re giving love instinctively
Around and round you’re turning me
I say to thee respectfully

I said a upside down you’re turning me
You’re giving love instinctively
Around and round you’re turning me
I say to thee respectfully

Upside down you’re turning me

    1. I thought it was hilarious, plus often the “main” videos have weird licensing restrictions. That’s my theory anyway, although when I put videos onto YouTube, I only ever found out about age restrictions.
