QuotesEdit

Andy: “James Brown meets Can meets Old Mother Hubbard. A lighter than air funkery rhyme.”

Andy: “Written for disco chanteuse, Sophie Ellis-Bextor. She didn't like it. Best line, ‘Isaac Newton's annoyed with me’. Played it to Dave Gregory who dug the ‘bungee’ guitar in the ‘flying’ sections. Think I achieved escape velocity by the end harmonies. ‘My Von Braun Guitar’.”

LyricsEdit

How many rooftops can I see

now I'm defying gravity

Your big love put wings on me

now I'm defying gravity

One little kiss from him to she

now I'm defying gravity


I defy, I defy, I defy you gravity

I defy, I defy, I defy you gravity

And it's just like flying

I'm flying when I tumble in the arms of the angel that fell for me, lucky me


Earthly ties are all snipped free

now I'm defying gravity

And my new neighbours are bird and bee

now I'm defying gravity

Isaac Newton's annoyed with me

now I'm defying gravity


I defy, I defy, I defy you gravity

I defy, I defy, I defy you gravity

And it's just like flying

I'm flying when I tumble in the arms of the angel that fell for me

I defy you gravity
