Round and Round

A couple of years ago Laura bought me the Matt Andersen album Live at the Phoenix and the last song on the album is called Round and Round.  It is a bouncy blues song and our four year-old loves the song.  She likes to have me scoop her up and dance round and round in circles with her to the song.  Lately she has been asking to listen to it in the van where we can turn it up loud.  She is a blues-child, that one.  For me the lyrics are about resiliency and keeping a positive attitude about life.  I can’t think of better parameters for a blog that will frequently touch on parenting and the challenges life throws our way.

Round and Round  – Matt Andersen (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TRy7_GTJbyY)

You’ve got to give your all, do your best, take the journey and pass the test. You’ve got to go round and round.

You’ve got to buy it high and sell it low. Show them yes when they tell you no.  You’ve got to go round and round.

You’ve got to make it good when it’s bad. Leave them happy when they’re sad. You’ve got to go round and round.

My favourite day is yesterday, my favourite way is the only way.

You’ve got to go round and round

You’ve got to let it go when its gone, get back up and carry on.  You’ve got to go round and round.

You’ve got to make your mark where you stand. Always do whenever you can. You’ve got to go round and round.
