life goes round

written by Katey Sagal & David Rickets


Little Maryann
Did you think that the earth was flat
Did you think that the prince would come
Or don’t you think about things like that
Did you think that the cradled be rockin
Just after the church bell rang
Oh sister its so shockin
How did things get so out of hand

Oh, life goes round
And what you dreamed about is not what you found
Oh, you ask why
There’s a crack in the mirror and time goes by
And its gone in the blink of an eye

Everywhere I go
Nothing looks like I thought it would
Where are the stars that I stood under
Are they really gone for good
I believed that we’d all wear the white dress
I believed in a better day
Soon enough a fool discovers
That she never gonna get her way


Oh, life goes round
And what you’ve dreamed about is not what you’ve found
Oh you break down
Never thought you were gonna fall this far
‘Til you hit the ground

Oh, somebody calls your name
But now you’re tired of listening
You know the story is all the same
Once you’ve been there once you
Won’t go back, you
Can’t go back out in the rain

Oh, life goes round
And what you dreamed about is not what you found
Oh, no regrets
Didn’t get what you asked for
But you get what you get
And you know its not over
Yet…
