Song Description

This is just a fun little song about the ups and downs of life...

Story Behind the Song

I love the concept of comparing the idea of life to a carousel ride, and the bridge that says: And who could ever know what's comin' around With all the ups and downs life sends. Just jump on a painted pony, And if you fall, just jump up again.

Lyrics

The Carousel Song

It's eight o'clock on a soccer day,
And I'm barely awake.
I've got a shot that I can make,
But I'm afraid I'll make a mistake.

It's ten o'clock and I forgot the way
To ride my bike.
Then I remembered my grandpa say
That's what life is like.

(Chorus)
Life is like a bowl of cherries
When things are going well.
And life is like a breeze that carries you.
And life is like a carousel,
Yeah, kind of like a carousel.

Another time, another day,
I fell down on a hike.
But I remembered my grandpa say
That's what life is like!

(Chorus)

And who could ever know what's comin' around
With all the ups and downs life sends.
Just jump on a painted pony,
And if you fall, just jump up again.

Life is like a bowl of cherries
When things are going well.
And life is like a breeze that carries you.
And life is like a carousel,
At least as far as I can tell.
And life is like a carousel,
Yeah, kind of like a carousel.

Round and round, and round and round, and round and round, and round and round...
