Around the World Lyrics – Christine Ebersole

Around the World Lyrics by Christine Ebersole

It’s my mother’s house in my mother’s name
And you can’t beat mother and mother’s game
Cuz she likes the people that I don’t like
And if I don’t like it, it’s “take a hike”

Which is mother’s way of reminding me
When you live off mother, you can’t be free
And I think that mother is very mean
At this latest thing with this wash machine

The one Jerry bought
Don’t be too surprised
If the guy moves in and I’m pulverized
Cuz I’ll be damned if I’m gonna waste my time

Washing clothes in a g#dd#mned machine!
I feel very strongly about mementos
Memorabilia, I guess you’d call it
Around the world is what I call

My wall of special things
Around the world with rose bouquets
I dried and tied on strings
A silver mask from a masquerade

Around and round I twirled
You tack them up so you can twirl
Around the world
Edie, he found it!

Jerry found my old song!
It’s my mother’s house with my mother’s friends
And with Jerry coming, it never ends
It’s the same old story as George Gould Strong

Not in twenty years did we get along!
Though I do feel bad for the way he died
In a two bit fleabag, a suicide
It was mother’s money, the Bouviers

And if mother spent it in crazy ways…
No one else took care of her, only me!
She was taken care of, not sexually!
And if you infer that they were using her

I will shove you right under the g#dd#mn bed!
Around the world with stones and shells
The nicest one I lost
Around the world without a boat

I’m just a quote from Frost
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood
A lovely crossing all
Around the world, the world around

The attic wall
Around the world, there isn’t room
For every special thing
Around the world, you choose a few

To make the music sing
A silver mask from a masquerade
Around and round I twirled
You tack them up so when you go

The world will be the one you know
A birdcage I planned to hang
I’ll get to that someday
A birdcage for a bird who flew away

Around the world
