Well the druEnken clown still haGmnging 'round but it's plaAin the lauGmghters alFml died down The teBars you tried so haArd to hide are floEwing And a blindE man with his knifeGm in hand has convinAced himseGmlf that he undFmerstands I wishB him well, miss Carousel, but AI gotta be a goEing

WCmon't you come and geGmt me when You're sCmure that you don't neGmed me then I'll stCmand outside your wiGmndow and proAudly call your naGmme Gm B

Well the lady's been told that all her gold is worth so much she can't be sold No time to weep, she'll later sleep tomorrow When she carries her face to the market place and bets it on the open enrage She can ring her bells, miss Carousel, but this singing brings me sorrow Chorus But it's always done, every mothers sun is surely grown, and never run So they fight with all their might inside them When the battles been fought 'n they all been taught that the trick is just not being caught Will you give 'em hell, miss Carousel, when they're begging you to hide them When they need a rose, your eyes felt closed You clamped your fingers around your nose Would you say, that's anyway to judge him Well you haven't got the authority too kill him in the first degree But would you feel compelled, miss Carousel, if you had something to regret in Solo over chorus On velvet beach far beneath the reach of those who come to pray and preach The natural man that tried to stand is falling Well how long will it be before he sees you own his legs but his mind is free only you can tell , miss Carousel, how long will he be crawling Chorus All the castle walls grown so tall Seems there ain't no hope at all to reach the top even though you stopped for breathing But I ain't gonna try to make you cry the teardrops couldn't find your eyes It's all been swell, miss Carousel, but the time has come for leaving Chorus ( x 4)
