Life Is But A Wheel (Part II)

Life Is But A Wheel

Life Is But A Wheel (Part II).mp3

When I was a little boy, my family would take me to the fair
And I’d stand in line to ride that carousel-
It’d go around and around, and I’d dream of flying off
Just like Mary Poppins’ fantasies of hopping in the chalk
And I’d cry please, mister, please, don’t you make this big wheel stop

When I was a teenage boy, I’d ride out to the fair with my friends
We’d run along, take that gravitron for a spin-
And it’d go around and around, like a dreidel or a top
And it’d scare me half to death once the floor would start to drop
I’d cry please, mister, please, don’t you make this big wheel stop

When I was a younger man, I’d take my baby to the fair
We’d hold hands, and we’d ride that ferris wheel-
It’d go around and around, then I’d kiss her at the top
And I’d thank that lord above for the gifts that he had wrought
I’d cry please, mister, please, if this life is but a wheel don’t make it stop

But now I’m old and in the way, my hair’s too gray for the fair
I watch the world from this wooden rocking chair-
It goes around and around, I see the bottom through the top
I’ve been waiting for a while for the other shoe to drop
So please, mister, please, can we make this big wheel stop?
