Oh, I got glue on my strings That′s the way that the world goes 'round

I know a guy that′s got a lot to lose He's a pretty nice fellow, kinda confused Got muscles in his head, ain't never been used Thinks he own half of this town Starts drinking heavy, gets a big red nose Beats his old lady with a rubber hose Then he takes her out to dinner, buys her new clothes That′s the way that the world goes ′round That's the way that the world goes ′round You're up one day, the next you′re down It's half an inch of water and you think you′re gonna drown That's the way that the world goes 'round I was sitting in the bathtub, counting my toes When the radiator broke, water all froze I got stuck in the ice without my clothes Naked as the eyes of a clown I was crying, "Ice cubes", hoping I′d croak When the sun come through the window, the ice all broke I stood up and laughed, thought it was a joke That′s the way that the world goes 'round That′s the way that the world goes 'round You′re up one day, the next you're down It′s half an inch of water and you think you're gonna drown That's the way that the world goes ′round That′s the way that the world goes 'round You′re up one day, the next you're down It′s half an inch of water and you think you're gonna drown That′s the way that the world goes 'round That's the way that the world goes ′round That′s the way that the world goes 'round
