        I walk you home yeah every day from school

I walk you home yeah every day from school
But still you treat me like I was a fool
Merry go round, whoa-oh
You got me goin' upside down

You said you'd never date another boy
But still you treat me like I was a toy
Merry go round, whoa-oh
You got me goin' upside down

You said that we would never part
But babe you went and broke my heart
You wind me up and then you put me down
They're laughing at me all over town

Merry go round, whoa-oh
Stop you're foolin' dont go round
With guys who're cool and love me so

You said that we would never part
Hey hey babe you went and broke my heart
You wind me up and then you put me down
They're laughing at me whoa all over town

Merry go round, whoa-oh
Stop you're foolin around, whoa
With guys who're cool and love me so
My little merry go round, whoa-oh

Hey merry go round
You got me goin' upside down
Hey hey hey merry go round
