(5:25)

Iris A thousand steps / Paperman Obviously / Iris The Jewish cemetery / Paperman It may come in handy / Iris Let me get him. Your heart / Paperman Stay here / A thousand steps to nowhere That is all I see This night is asking questions Where and what for me / A thousand miles from Henny Who warned me from the start I feel foolhardy, I miss Sardi's Thought I was so smart / Chorus Down is up, up is down That's just life in Kinja town The natives and the castaways That's just life for me these days / Henny I've had it with this weather My skin is pale as bleach I'm heading back to Kinja And stretch out on the beach / My past is in these boxes All clean and neatly packed No time for sorrow, I leave tomorrow There's no turning back / No turning back, I'm island bound / I want to turn from white to brown Sing and dance to calypso songs Trade in this mink for a pink sarong / Iris I really do admire him And what he's taking on This island and these crazies But I fear he'll soon be gone / Can't let myself fall for him A terrible mistake He's got Henny, I'm one too many This time my heart could break / Chorus A thousand steps to nowhere That is all I see / Paperman My heart is pounding madly / Iris Mine too, won't let me be A thousand reasons not to / Paperman Strange but oh so true I'm behaving / Iris You're not past saving A thing we both should do / Henny Cause he's happy / Duet Down is up, up is down / Henny I understand / Duet That's just life in Kinja town / Henny Cause he's my man / Duet The natives and the castaways That's just life for us these days / Henny Cause he's happy / Duet Down is up, up is down / Henny I understand / Duet That's just life in Kinja town / Henny Cause he's my man / Duet The natives and the castaways / Ensemble That's just life for us these days That's just life for us these days / Paperman Gilbert come and prime the pump
