Merry-Go-Round

Round n' round n' round.
Round n' round n' round.
I guess the Lord must be in New York City.
 
If you ain't got two kids by 21,
you're probably gonna die alone—
at least that's what tradition told you.
And it don't matter if you don't believe,
come Sunday morning you must be there
in the front row, like you're supposed to.
 
Same hurt in every heart—
same trailer, different park.
 
And mama's hooked on Mary Kay,
and brother's hooked on Mary Jane,
and daddy's hooked on Mary two doors down.
Mary, Mary, quite contrary—
we're so bored, so we get married,
and, just like dust, we settle in this town.
On this broken merry-go-round n' round n' round we go.
Where it stops nobody knows.
And it ain't slowin' down—this merry-go-round.
 
We think that the first time's good enough
so we hold on to high school love.
Say we won't end up like our parents.
Tiny little boxes in a row,
ain't want you want, it's what you know—
just happy in the shoes you're wearin'
 
Same checks we're always cashing
to buy a little more distraction.
 
And mama's hooked on Mary Kay,
and brother's hooked on Mary Jane,
and daddy's hooked on Mary two doors down.
Mary, Mary, quite contrary—
we're so bored, so we get married,
and, just like dust, we settle in this town.
On this broken merry-go-round n' round n' round we go.
Where it stops nobody knows.
And it ain't slowin' down—this merry-go-round.
 
Merry-go-round.
 
And mama's hooked on Mary Kay,
and brother's hooked on Mary Jane,
and daddy's hooked on Mary two doors down.
Mary, Mary, quite contrary—
we're so bored until we're buried
and just like dust we settle in this town
on this broken merry-go-round.
 
Round n' round n' round.
Round n' round n' round n' round n' round.
I guess the Lord must be in New York City.
 
¡Gracias!
