One Man's Ceiling Is Another Man's Floor

ŠPaul Simon, released on There Goes Rhymin' Simon, 1973

.

There's been some hard feelings here

About some words that were said

Been some hard feelings here

And what is more

There's been a bloody purple nose

And some bloody purple clothes

That were messing up the lobby floor

It's just apartment house rules

So all you 'partment fools

Remember: one man's ceiling is another man's floor!

One man's ceiling is another man's floor

.

There's been some strange goin's on

And some folks have come and gone

Like the elevator man don't work no more

I heard a racket in the hall

And I thought I heard a call

But I never opened up my door

It's just apartment house sense

It's like apartment rents

Remember: one man's ceiling is another man's floor!

one man's ceiling is another man's floor!

.

There's an alley

in the back of my building

Where some people congregate in shame

I was walking with my dog

And the night was black with smog

When I thought I heard somebody

Call my name

.

Ah-- Remember: one man's ceiling is another man's floor!

one man's ceiling is another man's floor!
