Watching The Wheels – John Lennon

Well they give me all kinds of warnings
to save me from ruin
When I say that I’m o. k. they look at me kind of strange
Surely you’re not happy now you no longer play the game

People say I’m lazy dreaming my life away
Well 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 asking questions lost in confusion
Well I tell them there’s no problem, only solutions
Well they shake their heads and look
at me as if I’ve lost my mind
