It's a long long way to the top of the world

Its a long way to the top of the world
But its only a short fall back down

A young fool filled with green, I let ambition rule me
Like a hunger that gnawed at my soul
I worked hard made my fortune but lost the heart of my darling
She got lonely and her love soon grew cold

    Its a long long way to the top of the world
    On a rough road that winds round and round
    Its a long long way to the top of the world
    But its only a short fall back down

Now I'm a big man with money but at love I'm a pauper
Though what I once had now another man claims
I've reached the top of the world but my heart hit rock bottom
I can't make love to fortune and fame
