WATCHING THE WHEELS

(John Lennon)  1980

People say I'm crazy
Doin' what I'm doin'
And they give me all kinds of warnings
To save me from ruin
And when I say that I'm okay, well they look at me kinda strange 
"Surely, you're not happy now, you no longer play the game"

People say I'm lazy
Dreaming my life away
And they give me all kinds of advice
Designed to enlighten me
When I tell them that I'm doing fine watching shadows on the wall
"Don't you miss the big time boy, you're no longer on the ball?"
I'm just sitting here watching the wheels go round
And round
I really love to watch them roll
No longer riding on the merry-go-round

People ask me questions
So lost in confusion
Well I tell them there's no problem
Only solutions
And then they shake their heads and they look at me, 
As if I've lost my mind
And I tell them there's no hurry, 
I'm just sitting here doing time

I'm just sitting here watching the wheels go round 
And round
I really love to watch them roll
No longer riding on the merry-go-round

I'm just sitting here watching the wheels go round 
And round
I really love to watch them roll
No longer riding on the merry-go-round


I'm just sittin' here watchin' the wheels go round
I'm just sittin' here watchin' the wheels
