THE GIRL ON THE MERRY-GO-ROUND

 

I met a girl at the Farthing Fair.

She was as sweet as honey.

You’d think I was a millionaire

The way I squandered my money.

We took a trip on the ghost express,

And the switchback up and down

And then she said she’d like to have

A ride on the merry-go-round.

 

Refrain:

The girl on the merry-go-round,

She was as sweet as honey,

But she left me standing on the ground,

When I ran out of money.

 

We tried our luck at the shooting range,

And at the coconut shy,

We took a turn on the dodgems

And the big wheel spinning high.

I bought her coke and candy floss,

I took her to see the clowns,

And then she said she’d like to have

A ride on the merry-go-round.

 

Refrain:

The girl on the merry-go-round etc

 

I put my hand in my pocket

And my money was nearly done.

I couldn’t pay for the two of us,

So I paid for only one.

The last I saw as she whizzed by

Was the flutter of flying hair,

For she slipped away into the crowd

And I was alone at the Farthing Fair.

 

Refrain:

The girl on the merry-go-round etc
