JEWEL lyrics - The Merry Goes 'Round

Sammy The Spider

Original and similar lyrics
Sammy the spider was on a mission To move from the bathroom to the kitchen He gathered his things and put 'em in a bag Said goodbye to his mom and dad His 47 siblings begged "to stay here instead" But he went ahead and slid down his spider web Like a gun slinger in the old wild west He clinched his teeth And squinted his eyes And dared the world to put him to the test [Chorus 1] Sammy the spider Sure was a tiger He pulled his knee socks up higher All eight of them He was on a mission From the bathroom to the kitchen He was a real fighter Sammy the spider The hallway opened up like the great unknown that day A vast expanse in which many a spider lost his way His nerves were jumpy as he cleared the hall He turned the corner, and that's when he saw A shadow cast a menacing shape It looked like a monster complete with a cape He snuck and he creeped and karate chopped with his hands Just to discover It was nothing other Than a dust ball back lit by a lamp [Chorus 2] Sammy the spider Sure was a tiger He pulled his knee socks up higher All eight of them He was on an expedition An impossible mission He was real fighter That Sammy the spider Tired and thirsty, he began to lose heart Just a sad spider alone in the dark He pulled a tattered picture from out of his bag He could almost hear those glistening counters And lovely painted cabinets whisper "Come on Sammy, keep moving ahead..." So he pulled up his britches and he held his head up high He focused all four eyes, and kept 'em on the prize Didn't flinch at shadows, he just passed 'em by Weary and exhausted, He kept on walkin' Until he finally arrived [Chorus 3] Sammy the spider Sure was a tiger He pulled his knee socks up higher All eight of them He completed his mission He made it to the kitchen He was a real fighter That Sammy the spider Sammys got an apartment in the sky rise of the kitchen With children of his own now, his parents come and visit

Ballad Of Spider John

JIMMY BUFFETT "Living And Dying In 3/4 Time"
Spider John is my name friend I'm in between freights and I sure would be obliged If you'd share your company I know this may sound strange to you But if you wait 'til the song is sung and the stories told You might come to understand Why I'm old and bent and devil's been runnin' out of time When I long ago held a royal flush in my hand. Oh, I was a super market fool, I was a roll-the-bank, a stool pigeon, Robbing my hometown I thought I'd lost the blues, yes, I thought I'd paid my dues I thought I'd found the life to suit my style But here I sit ol' Spider John The robber man Long, tall and handsome Yes, ol' Spider John with the loaded hand Taking ransom Then one day I met Diamond Lil She was the sweetest thing, I declare, That the summer breeze ever blown my way But, lady, she had no idea my illustrious occupation She thought I was a saint, not a sinner gone astray But you see that word got around and Lily left town Never saw her again Tossin' and turnin', causin' my heart to grieve Oh, I was a super market fool, I was roll-the-bank, stool pigeon Robbing my hometown. I thought I'd lost my blues, thought I'd paid my dues I thought I'd found the life to suit my style. But here I sit ol' Spider John, The robber man Long, tall and handsome Yes, ol' Spider John with the loaded hand Taking ransom That is all my story Been these thirty years since I took to the road Find my precious jewel one If you see my Lily, won't you give her my regards Tell her ol' Spider got tangled In the black web that he spun You can tell her that ol' Spider got tangled In the black web that he spun

Mission 2000

CHRIS CORNELL
Pulled through you and drowning in your swirl Unfolding in your will I'm on a mission now Smoldering down inside your mood and fanning in your eyes I'm on a mission now I'm going to dive through your crying and sleep in your hair Rise from your ashes and kneel in your prayers Tear all your temples down I'm on a mission now Pulled through you and drowning in your swirl Unfolding in your will I'm on a mission now I'm going to glide on the winds of your breathing Writhe in your calm and provide your release Weave into your wanting and needing And reside in the heart of your strongest beliefs tear all our temples down I'm on a mission now And I have nothing, but then the have is not as good as the want And I have nothing, but then the have is not as good as the want I'm on a mission now

God Is A Spider

Cherry Poppin' Daddies "Soul Caddy"
What's the matter Jesus? Did you forget my name? I'm the one with the tumor like a flower in my brain And I have learned to rue the day that I Slid from my utopia of amniotic slime God is a spider God is a spider God is a spider Tryin' to block my path And it's a matter of fate, and it's a matter of love into hate Mistakes - I wanna make my final escape My final escape Mayday Mayday Mayday Mayday I was born a Taurus, and not a toreador I can't join your chorus, I'm getting way too bored And I don't wanna die, I'm gonna plug my ears Why am I disgusted by the things I overhear? God is a spider God is a spider God is a spider Tryin' to block my path Crows in the cornfield, reaper swings the scythe I know a venomous bird about to fly Smear the paint 'til the colors run It's nearly time, I'm nearly done Flaming orange open sky And it's a matter of fate, and it's a matter of love into hate Mistakes - I wanna make my final escape My final escape Mayday Mayday Mayday Mayday

Four-Wheel Drive

JOHN MICHAEL MONTGOMERY "Pictures"
Well last night me and darlin We went explorin Pulled off the road to a place we'd never been I had to stop the truck because it was gettin muddy We started kissin, then I put it in... [Chorus:] Four-Wheel Drive And we kept on goin Man what a ride It made me feel like a kid again Slippin and sliddin Bouncin around in the cab Bringin back old memories of all the good times we've had Then I pulled it out Back on the main road I looked over at darlin Her face was all a glow She said honey that was wonderful can we do it again So I leaned over toward her and I put it back in [Chorus] Yeah darlin loves it when I put it in...four wheel drive
