      About "That's The Way That The World Goes Round"

      Lyrics for John Prine - "That's The Way That The World Goes Round"

      I know a man who's got a lot to lose
      A pretty nice fella, kinda confused
      Got muscles in his head that've never been used
      He thinks he owns half of this town
      He goes out drinkin' gets 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 a half-an-inch of water and you think you're gonna drown
      That's the way that the world goes 'round

      I was sittin' in the bathtub just countin' my toes
      When the radiator broke, water all froze
      I was stuck in the ice without my clothes
      Naked as the eyes of a clown
      I was cryin' ice cubes, hopin' I'd croak
      When the sun came through the window, the ice all broke
      I stood up and laughed, I thought it was a joke
      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 a half-an-inch of water and you think you're gonna drown
      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 a half-an-inch of water and you think you're gonna drown
      That's the way that the world goes 'round
