  • I know a gal got a lot to lose
    She's a pretty nice lady but she's kinda confused
    Got muscles in her head ain't never been used
    Thinks she owns half of this town
    Starts drinking heavy gets a big red nose
    And she beats her old man with her pantyhose
    And takes him out and buys him new clothes
    That's the way that the world goes 'round

    That's the way that the world goes 'round
    One minute you're up and the next you're down
    It's a half an inch of water and you think you're gonna drown
    That's the way that the world goes 'round

    Well I was sittin' in the tub just a countin' my toes
    When the radiator broke and the water froze
    Got stuck in the ice without any clothes
    Naked as the eyes of a clown
    I was crying ice cubes hoping that I'd croak
    When the sun came through the window and the ice all broke
    I said son of a gun man that's just a joke
    And that's the way that the world goes 'round

    That's the way that the world goes 'round
    One minute you're up and the next you're down
    Got a 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
    One minute you're up and the next you're down
    Got a 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 Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
