John Prine That's the Way that the World Goes 'Round Lyrics

Last updated: 09/01/2011 11:00:00 AM

I know a guy that's got a lot to lose!
he's a pretty nice fellow;
kinda confused.
Got muscles in his head;
ain't never been used,
thinks he own half of this town.
He started drinking heavy
and got a big red nose!
beats his old lady
with a, rubber hose!
then he takes her out to dinner
buys her new clothes.
that's the way that the world goes 'round.

That's the way that the world goes 'round!
you're up one day,
the next you're down!
it's half an inch of water
and you think you're gonna drown
that's the way that the world goes 'round.

I was sitting in the bathtub;
counting my toes!
when the radiator broke;
water all froze.
I got stuck in the ice
without my clothes,
naked as the eyes of a clown.
I was crying ice cubes
hoping I'd croak
when the sun come through the window,
the ice all broke!
I stood up and laughed,
thought it was a joke
that's the way that the world goes 'round.
