Merry​-​Go​-​Round (Single)

lyrics

Hollywood laughing in your face
Lights, camera, action, now you're lost in space
Rose-colored glasses help you see
You can fly up to the moony through the TV screen

Around and round and round we go
Dizzy as we spin the truth around again
Merry-Go Merry-Go-Round

Middle finger to the man
Cuz the lizard people run the PTA yeah
Round earth is looking kinda flat
Like a short stack with honey and a heart attack

Around and round and round we go
Dizzy as we spin the truth around again
Merry-Go Merry-Go-Round

Around and round and round we go
Dizzy as we spin the truth around again
Merry-Go-Round and round and round we go
Dizzy as we spin the truth around again
Merry-Go Merry-Go-Round

Merry-Go Merry-Go-Round
Merry-Go Merry-Go-Round
Merry-Go Merry-Go-Round
