lyrics

One more spin on the merry go round
The more you pay the less you enjoy the fare
Something so fun when we were young
Has become a more serious affair

It's late afternoon and the sun sets on the day
When you look around don't be astounded that it's found
To be only freaks and lonely souls who remain
Gaily in the fray

One more spin on the merry go round
The more you pay the less you enjoy the fare
Something so fun when we were young
Has become a more serious affair

Your friends have all gone home as it's late in the day
So time to find some new ones to come out and play
But one fell asleep, another made you weep
It's a hard card to keep
So I think it's time to take

One more spin on the merry go round
The more you pay the less you enjoy the fare
Something so fun when we were young
Has become a more serious affair
