Down and down she goes, Amanda Jones

I said down and down and down and down
She'd look really lovely at home
Til somebody's going to come up and ask her
To live happily ever after
Miss Amanda Jones

On and on she goes, little Miss Amanda Jones

I said on and on and on and on
Just watch her as she grow
Don't want to say it very obviously
But she's losing her nobility
Miss Amanda Jones

Hey girl, don't you realize the money invested in you?
Hey girl, you've just got to find someone who'll really pull your family through

Up and up she goes, Amanda Jones

I said up and up and up and up
She looks quite delightfully stoned
She's the darling of the discotheque crowd
Of her lineage she's rightfully proud
Miss Amanda Jones

Hey girl, with your nonsense nose pointing right down to the floor
Hey girl, your suspender shows and the girl behind you looks a bit unsure

Round and round she goes, the world of Amanda Jones

I said round and round and round and round
The balls and the dinners and shows
The little girl she just wanders about
Til it's time for her coming out
Miss Amanda Jones

Round and round and round
