Carousel
Lyrics
Carousel

Music and lights, a merry dance, we're riding around forever...
Jingling horses with rainbow reins, and manes of gold and silver...
Carnival man collecting coins, you have to get off or pay him...
Mummy, please can we go again? No - oh, well, ok then!
Carousel... We're going up and down and round and round it...
Carousel... It won't slow down, and we can't stop it turning...
But everything's fine 'cos Mum's with me...

Out with gang, it's such a scream having a ball together...
Motorcycles and crazy planes, yelling hell for leather...
Carnival doll collecting coins, you have to get off or pay her...
Hanging easy and nonchalant... Shriek - and run for cover!
Carousel... We're going up and down and round and round it...
Carousel... It won't slow down, and we can't stop it turning...
But everything's fine we're young and free...

Turning around to find her there, hair like a shining river...
Sweet as peaches and smooth as cream - Man, I have to have her!
Carnie in jeans collecting coins, you have to get off or pay him...
Honey, stay, take another spin... No - oh, well, ok then!
Carousel... We're going up and down and round and round it...
Carousel... It won't slow down, and we can't stop it turning...
But everything's fine now you're with me...

One final time before you grow, one final fling together...
And though we know you'll be back again, it feels like it's forever...
Carnie in curls collecting coins, you have to get off or pay her...
Stay awhile, take later train... No - oh, well, ok then!
Carousel... We're going up and down and round and round it...
Carousel... It won't slow down, and we can't stop it turning...
Please phone us to say if you're ok...

Music and lights, a merry dance, we're riding around forever...
Jingling horses with rainbow reins, and manes of gold and silver...
Rough looking guy collecting coins, you have to get off or pay him...
Grandad, please can we go again? No - oh well, ok then!
Carousel... We're going up and down and round and round this
carousel... It won't slow down, and we can't stop it turning...
And one day the lights will fade to grey...
