lyrics:

Some people talk about ya, like they know all about ya
When you get down they doubt ya
And when you dip it on the scene
Yeah they talking 'bout it
Cause they can't dip on the scene
Watch ya talk about it
T-t-t-talking about it

When you get elevated
They love it or they hate it
You dance up on them haters
Keep getting funky on the scene
While they jumping 'round ya
They trying to take all your dreams
But you can't allow it

Cause baby whether you're high or low
Whether you're high or low
You gotta tip on the tightrope (tip, tip on it)
Tip on the tightrope (tip, tip on it)
Baby, baby, whether you're high or low (high or low)
Baby, baby, whether you're high or low (high or low)
You gotta tip on the tightrope (tip, tip on it)
Now let me see you do the tightrope (tip, tip on it)
And I'm still tipping on it

See I'm not walking on it
Or trying to run around it
This ain't no acrobatics
You either follow or you lead
Yeah, I'm talking 'bout ya
I'll keep on blaming the machine
Yeah, I'm talking 'bout it
T-t-t-talking 'bout it
I can't complain about it
I gotta keep my balance
And just keep dancing on it
We getting funky on the scene
Yeah you know about it
Like a star on the screen
Watch me tip all on it

Now baby whether you're high or low (high or low)
Baby whether you're high or low (high or low)
You gotta tip on the tightrope (tip, tip on it)
Yeah, tip on the tightrope (tip, tip on it)
Baby, baby, whether you're high or low (high or low)
Baby whether you're high or low (high or low)
You gotta tip on the tightrope (tip, tip on it)
Baby let me see you do the tightrope (tip, tip on it)
And I'm still tipping on it

You gotta keep your balance or you fall into the gap
It's a challenge but I manage 'cause I'm cautious with the strap
Doing damage to your canvas that a doctor cannot patch
See why you don't want no friction
Like the back of a matchbook
That I will pass as I will forward you and your MacBook
Clothes shows will shut you down before we go-go backwards
Act up, and whether we high or low we're gonna get back up
Like the Dow Jones and NASDAQ
Sorta like a thong in your ass crack, c'mon

I tip on alligators, and little rattle snakers
But I'm another flavour, something like a Terminator
Ain't no equivocating, I fight for what I believe
Why you talking 'bout it
Sh-sh-she's talking about it
Some calling me a sinner, some calling me a winner
I'm calling you to dinner, and you know exactly what I mean
Yeah I'm talking 'bout ya
You can rock or you can leave
Watch me tip without ya

Now whether I'm high or low (high or low)
Whether I'm high or low (high or low)
I'm gonna tip on the tightrope (tip, tip on it)
Baby, baby, whether I'm high or low (high or low)
I gotta tip on the tightrope, now baby tip on the tightrope

\o/! You are getting one big virtual hug from me. In fact, I nearly put my arm around my computer.
