Spinning, spinning round and round
How did life turn upside down?

I was sipping my coffee in Vegas
Writing songs in my studio office
A cat in my lap, two at my feet
Life was looking pretty darn sweet

Spinning, spinning, round and round
How did life turn upside down?

The desert night whispered my name
Come, seek fortune and fame
From town to town, I sang and played
Audiences loved me unafraid

Spinning, spinning, round and round
How did life turn upside down?

I met a man who was a stranger
Loving him was the danger
Playing games ‘what if’ and ‘if only’
The radio played “Only the Lonely”

Spinning, spinning, round and round
How did life turn upside down?

Lovers and other strangers
Don masks for the masquerade
Protect your heart, road rangers
Keep your heart unscathed

Spinning, spinning, round and round
How did life turn upside down?
