Spinning Wheel

“What goes up must come down
Spinnin' wheel got to go 'round
Talkin' 'bout your troubles it's a cryin' sin
Ride a painted pony let the spinnin' wheel spin

You got no money and you got no home
Spinnin' wheel all alone
Talkin' 'bout your troubles and you, you never learn
Ride a painted pony let the spinnin' wheel turn”

(“Spinning Wheel”, by Blood, Sweat & Tears)

“Round and round like a horse on a carousel, we go,
Will I catch up to love? I could never tell, I know,
Chasing after you is like a fairytale, but I,
Feel like I'm glued on tight to this carousel

This horse is too slow,
We’re always this close,
Almost, almost, we’re a freakshow

Right, right when I’m near,
It’s like you disappeared,
Where’d you go? My dear, you're a freakshow!”

(“Carousel”, by Jeremy Dussolliet, Melanie Martinez, and Timothy Sommers)

“With a boulder on my shoulder, feelin' kinda older, I tripped the merry-go-round
With this very unpleasing sneezing and wheezing, the calliope crashed to the ground”

(“Blinded by the Light”, by Bruce Springsteen)

“In Spring a young man’s fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love.”

(From “Locksley Hall” by Alfred, Lord Tennyson)

“If March comes in like a lion, it goes out like a lamb”…(not!)

(From “The Farmer’s Almanac”, except for the “not!” part…)
