If you've ever ridden in an elevator in NC, you've seen her!
Cherie...Cherie Berry picks me up and lifts my feet off the ground
Cherie...Cherie Berry gets me high and never brings me back down
I heard about a lady (tell me about the lady)
Her job is making sure that we can all get high (uh huh)
I think she's pretty (well what makes her so pretty?)
Her golden glasses and her magic smile (oh oh)
Down elevator, d-d-down elevator come on
Let me tell you bout a lady ( where'd you meet that lady?)
Uptown in a building going floor to floor (huh?)
I lost that lady (how'd you lose that lady?)
I stepped out by mistake and someone closed the door (aww)
Come and get me higher
High as I can be.....
(First floor) feeling lonely and blue
(Third floor) wasn't sure what I should do
(Fifth floor) I had a little change of heart
(Seventh floor) that's when the storm clouds started to part
By the ninth floor...there was a change on my face
A permanent smile that I couldn't erase
When I finally made it to the thirteenth floor
I was blinded by the light when she opened the door
Should I call you Mrs. Berry?
It's not necessary.
I'll call you Cherie then.
Well that'll be fine. (Alright but...)
Are you fairy? No. A dignitary? Stop
I'm just a lady with a line to the sky.
