What Goes Around

Story Behind The Song

My boss's wife preferred to have her husband work with only men. Thus when I came along, I became her target, and she began spreading rumors about me, but I am not one to partake of such juvenile behavior. One of her favorite things to say is, "What goes around comes around." I decided to thank her with a hit song!

Lyrics

How do you make assumptions about who I am,
when you dn't even know me at all.
And how do you say the things you do like you're better than me?
Oh, lady, you're headed for a fall.

'Cause what goes around comes around,
ain't that what you said
while you were goin' 'round spreadin' likes all over town.
Well, I heard you're life's in shambles.
What did you expect?
Your goin' around just came back around.

How do you take your losses and blame them all on me
when you lost it all before I came along?
Were you lookin' for a reason for your own insecurities?
Look in the mirror,
you're the only one who did you wrong.

'Cause what goes around comes around,
ain't that what you said
while you were goin' 'round spreadin' likes all over town.
Well, I heard you're life's in shambles.
What did you expect?
Your goin' around just came back around.

I wish you no harm.
But you've done this to yourself.

This song is almost over, but it just wouldn't seem right
to walk away and never even try
to put the past behind us, and call it a day.
Let's just let it go and go on with our lives.

'Cause what goes around comes around.
Ain't that what they say?
You can build your walls, but they all come tumblin' down.
When you choose to build your world on
gettin' even and gettin' mad.
That's when your goin' around comes back around.
