Round and round and round
(People make the world go round)
Round and round and round

Teachers on strike, no more school today
They want more money but the board won't pay
Everybody's talkin' 'bout ecology
The air's too polluted that it's hard to breathe

But that's what makes the world go round
The ups and downs a carousel
Changing people's heads around
Go underground young men
People make the world go round

Old folks judge you by the clothes you wear
They'd swear you're a hippie if you have long hair
Young politicians fight for poverty
While people still cry for equality

(** Repeat with ad lib x2)

(* Repeat with ad lib and fade)
