Title Round Goes the Wheel
Description ROUND GOES THE WHEEL I'm going to sing a noble strain And you a history give, To teach you all from infancy The way we all should live, First a child should understand Old Father Time to steal, So swiftly on, not stopping Our life will turn the wheel. When I vas a lad the age of ten I often played the wag, And many a threshing now and then On my back and shoulders had* My master said, "You naughty boy I'll quickly make you feel How can you thus your time destroy My cane shall turn the wheel." When I was in love not long ago I never shall forget it The lessons I have taught and seen I ought not to regret it. When I ask her if she'd marry And our love to family seal "Of cash you've not enough," said she "For money turns the wheel." Now when you're married you will find The truth of what I say. You'll find your wife will speak her mind. And will have her own way. Should you come home late at night And into bed steadily reel Why, then, of course, I need not state The tongue will turn the wheel, Now make the most of every hour And every minute small The present is within your heart* ;The past "beyond recall. !So in the future every day Old age will on us steal. ¦So let's be gay, for who can say When time -ill stop the wheel. -94-
