And The World Goes Round

Hawk of a man with a bill in his hand

Sucking all the good seed out of the land and the world goes round

Chopping down trees in the dirty breeze

Dropping down a deep freeze over seas and the world goes round

And I’m in love

And I want to stay alive

Want my children’s children to survive

I’m in love

Peeping Tom with a CD Rom

Learning how to make his own atomic bomb and the world goes round

Talk is at an all time high today

Still nobody knows exactly what to say and the world goes round

And I’m in love

The elves say the sun is a she

I must say indeed I do agree

Giving all the light she can

She’s too warm to be a man

The dwarves say the earth’s her sister

Tell that to the men who’ve twisted her

She’ll still be coming around

Long after they’re all in the ground

And I’m in love

And I don’t care if it’s na´ve

To give your heart and still believe in love

Awed by the size of a baby’s eyes

She smiles at her daddy and he’s hypnotized and the world goes round

Bigger than a name

Bigger than the game

Bigger than the bang from which everything came and the world goes round

And I’m in love
