Thats The Way The World Goes Round Song Lyrics

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

Thats The Way The World Goes Round Song Chords






I know a guy that’s got a lot to lose.

He’s a pretty nice fellow but he’s kind of confused.

He’s got muscles in his head that 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 and 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 and 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 and 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 and 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 and 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
