Audacious Shalott dreaming her life away



Watching the Wheels
John Lennon

People say I'm crazy doing what I'm doing,
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 in the game,

People say I'm lazy dreaming wasting my life away, (just dreaming)
Well they give me all kinds of warnings designed to enlighten me,
When I say 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 the traffic flow,
No longer riding on the merry-go-round,
I just had to let it go,

People ask me questions looking for solutions,
Well I tell them there's no problem,
Only confusion,
I tell them it is also fine to watching shadows on the wall
Oh don't 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 just had to let it go.

I can never just watch.
But I can at least meditate.

This version he did in 1980 and he changed some words. I took it from a video at YouTube and I like it this way.
From where he came from makes sense.
