John Lennon -Watching The Wheels: For Sandra


 
People say I'm crazy, doing what I'm doing
They give me all kinds of warnings to save me from ruin
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
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
I just had to let it go
 
People ask me questions, lost in confusion
I tell them there's no problem, only solutions
They shake their heads and they look at me as if I've lost my mind
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 just had to let it go
