Lyrics
Left and right
Like day and night
That's what makes the world go round
In and out
Thin and stout
That's what makes the world go round

For every up there is a down
For every square. There is a round?
Yes.
For every high. There is a low?
Uh-huh
For every to. There is a ... fro?
Yes, fro.
To and fro
Stop and go
That's what makes the world go round

In and out, thin and stout
Merlin! Merlin!
I swallowed a bug!
Oh. What's wrong with that?
After all, you're a fish.
Instinct, you know.
But you said i had no instinct.
Yes, oh. Oh. i did.
That's neither here nor there.
Well the main thing is...

You must set your sights upon the heights
Don't be a mediocrity
Mediocrity? That's right!
Don't just wait and trust to fate
And say, that's how it's meant to be
It's up to you how far you go
If you don't try you'll never know
And so my lad as I've explained
Nothing ventured, nothing gained

For every to there is a fro
For every stop there is a go
And that's what makes the world go round

And that's what makes the world go round
You see my boy it's nature's way
Upon the weak the strong ones prey
The human life it's also true
The strong will try to conquer you
That is what you must expect
Unless you use your intellect
Brains and brawn, weak and strong
That's what makes the world go round
