Merry-Go-Round

(Peter Tork/Diane Hilderbrand)
Vocal: Peter Tork
Hollow carnival voice
Sings tunes of nobody's choice
And on a vacant lot
Someone just forgot
Standing all alone
Turning on it's own

Weary merry-go-round
Grows slowly into the ground
And faded circus hacks
Sorrow broke thier backs
And thier sadness cries
From thier staring eyes

Still small children come
And bring your heart of play
Spirits all alive
To drive the ghosts away

Useless merry-go-round
Tomorrow they'll tear you down
To build a parking lot
If it fits or not
It was just a toy
All it brought was joy
