If you've ever ridden in an elevator in NC, you've seen her!

lyrics

Chorus:
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)

Chorus

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.
