So, you’re in an elevator with a whole slew of other women…

This song was based on a real event that happened involving Steven Tyler and said women. As Tyler tells it, before his days of sobriety, he found himself in a hotel hot tub with multiple women- when they moved the party to his room…

…they piled into the hotel elevator wearing nothing but towels and bathrobes. One of the ladies decided to have some fun and push all the buttons in the elevator, which brought it down to the lobby. When one of the girls opened her robe to show Tyler her goods, the elevator doors opened, giving the crowded lobby a look.

….and, voila! “Love In An Elevator” was born. Tyler came up with the lyrics, but was concerned that the title was too juvenile. Joe Perry pointed out that they already had a song called “Dude Looks Like A Lady” which worked out very well for them, so they went with “Love In An Elevator.”

Aerosmith hasn’t always been known for there deep meaningful lyrics, however they do have a few title tracks written from the heart. This has allowed the band to show off their incredible talents as musicians…

My favorite fact about this song? All five members of the band sing the last line of the song in harmony, a cappella, every time they play live. Check it out!
 

+Love in An Elevator lyrics below+

Workin’ like a dog fo de boss man
Workin’ for de company
I’m bettin’ on the dice I’m tossin’
I’m gonna have a fantasy
But where am I gonna look?
They tell me that love is blind
I really need a girl like an open book
to read between the lines

Love in an elevator
Livin’ it up when I’m goin’ down
Love in an elevator
Lovin’ it up ’til I hit the ground

Jacki’s in the elevator
Lingerie second floor
She said ‘can I see you later
And love you just a little more?’
I kinda hope we get stuck
nobody gets out alive
She said I’ll show ya how to fax in the mailroom honey
and have you home by five

Love in an elevator
Livin’ it up when I’m goin’ down
Love in an elevator
Lovin’ it up ’til I hit the ground

In the air, in the air, honey one more time not it ain’t fair
Love in an elevator
Lovin’ it up when I’m goin’ down

Love in an
elevator
goin’ down

Love in an elevator
Lovin’ it up when I’m goin’ down
Love in an elevator
Lovin’ it up when I hit the ground

Gonna be a penthouse pauper
Gonna be a millionaire
I’m gonna be a real fast talker
and have me a love affair
Gotta get my timin’ right
It’s a test that I gotta pass
I’ll chase you all the way to teh stairway honey
Kiss your sassafras

Love in an elevator
Lovin’ it up when I’m goin’ down
Love in an elevator
Livin’ it up ’til I hit the ground

Do you care? Do you care?
Honey one more time now it ain’t fair.
Love in an elevator
Livin’ it up when I’m goin’ down
