Memory Carousel

Wonder why they call them well drinks, when I ain’t better And the double shots don’t kill me, they only open up old wounds I’d like to know that man there in the mirror Cause if he likes to bet I know, you’ll be coming round soon I’m stuck here on a memory carousel A never ending trip aboard this getting nowhere hell Our ups and downs come round and round, it’s an awful place to dwell I’m stuck here on a memory carousel I haven’t seen you around town since you left me But you’re there like a shadow when, the neon lights come on Till I can reminisce without the wish, that you’ll be coming home I have to live, with the fact, that I’m as good as gone I’m stuck here on a memory carousel A never ending trip aboard this getting nowhere hell Our ups and downs come round and round, it’s an awful place to dwell I’m stuck here on a memory carousel This ride I’m on’s been anything but easy I wish by now I would have gotten off While Mary goes round, painting up the town I wish my love would fade, if it isn’t gonna stop I’m stuck here on a memory carousel A never ending trip aboard this getting nowhere hell Our ups and downs come round and round, it’s an awful place to dwell I’m stuck here on a memory carousel I’m stuck here on a memory carousel
