The World Goes Round And Round

This world goes round and round
Green leaves must turn to brown
What goes up must come down
It all comes back to you
You find whatever you feel
You lose whatever you steal
Just like a spinning wheel
The world goes round and round

People knocking at the golden door
They got plenty but they still want more
Don't know what they're looking for
The world goes round and round

Rain water runs down to the sea
Evaporation makes the clouds roll free
Then it goes and it rains on me
The world goes round and round

People fighting but we just can't win
Looks like we're going to do it again
That's just where I came in
The world goes round and round

We keep lying but it ain't no use
Keep cheatin but we can't break loose
Every chicken comes home to roost
The world goes round and round
