  • (Singing)

  • Rollercoaster,

  • carousel.

  • Where the highs are heaven,

  • but the lows,

  • oh, they can be hell.

  • You can grab the ring,

  • you can ring that bell,

  • when the ride is over,

  • you can never tell.

  • People tell you this one thing --

  • will make your life complete.

  • So you,

  • you give it everything you got

  • and you wind up on the street.

  • Then one day you wake up,

  • and they tell you "you're a queen,"

  • but then you find that someone else

  • is pulling on the strings.

  • Rollercoaster,

  • carousel.

  • Where the highs are heaven,

  • but the lows,

  • oh, they can be hell.

  • You can grab the ring,

  • you can ring that bell,

  • when the ride is over,

  • you can never tell.

  • The one you love,

  • they love you --

  • oh yeah --

  • until the end of time.

  • But lose your edge or lose your cool,

  • they will drop you like a dime.

  • Everyone is crowding 'round

  • when fortune is your friend.

  • When your luck is running out,

  • you're all alone again.

  • Rollercoaster,

  • carousel.

  • Where the highs are heaven

  • but the lows,

  • oh, they can be hell.

  • You can grab the ring,

  • you can ring that bell,

  • when the ride is over

  • you can never tell.

  • Well, maybe I'm just cynical,

  • and all these words are lies,

  • but experience keeps telling me

  • that the cautious one is wise.

  • But caution makes you hesitate,

  • and hesitate you're lost,

  • so take your opportunities

  • and never count the cost.

  • Rollercoaster,

  • carousel.

  • Where the highs are heaven,

  • but the lows,

  • oh, they can be hell.

  • You can grab the ring,

  • you can ring that bell,

  • when the ride is over --

  • over, over,

  • you can never, ever tell.

  • Rollercoaster,

  • carousel,

  • rollercoaster,

  • yeah, yeah, yeah,

  • carousel.

  • Carousel,

  • carousel,

  • carousel,

  • carousel.

  • (Applause)
