​Jumping Off the Sun

This song is by Colosseum and appears on the album The Grass Is Greener (1970).

This song goes up and up, down and down and up and down again
These notes like colour balls leaving smoke just like an aeroplane
Shooting up, falling down like para kids and men
Jumping off the sun
Jumping off the sun

This song goes bunchs of summer flowers of the smell of rain
Dance for big smoke rising, cigarettes in bed with you again
These notes make on endless that seems like the moon
Jumping off the sun
Jumping off the sun

This song is dancing like sunlight on the River Thames with you
Times pull the sound out with "Time to journey cross the Waterloo"
Well I know that sounds funny on my times square bell
Jumping off the sun
Jumping off the sun

This song goes up and up, down and down and up and down again
Lamar Meiki says I "Spring together like a daisy chain"
But these words have no meaning unless they are sung
Jumping off the sun
Jumping off the sun

Written by:

Mike Taylor and Dave Tomlin

Liner Notes:

Written by Mike Taylor, one of Britain's most gifted

composers, this was given to me a year or so before

his premature death. I have tried to do it with many

different groups, but this version has been worth

waiting for.
