Andy Brown - Merry Go Round Lyrics




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 best be there
In the front row, like you're s'posed to

Same hurt in every heart
Same trailer, different park

Mama's hooked on Mary Kay
Brother's hooked on Mary Jane
And daddy's hooked on Mary two doors down
Mary Mary, quite contrary
We get bored so we get married
And just like dust we settle in this town
On this broken merry-go-round
And round and round we go
Where it stops nobody knows
And it ain't slowin' down
This merry-go-round

We think 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 what you want, it's what you know
Just happy in the shoes you're wearin'

Same checks we're always cashin'
To buy a little more distraction

'Cause hooked on Mary Kay
Brother's hooked on Mary Jane
And daddy's hooked on Mary two doors down
Mary Mary, quite contrary
We get bored so we get married
And just like dust we settle in this town
On this broken merry-go-round
And round and round we go
Where it stops nobody knows
And it ain't slowin' down
This merry-go-round

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
Mmh, hey

Jack and Jill went up the hill
Jack burned out on booze and pills
Mary had a little lamb
Mary just don't give a damn no more
