Lyrics
Summer time, winter time
Spring time, fall
Everybody knows there's no time at all
Left of the center yeah,
Right of the road
Straight down the middle, nobody goes
So smile if this world has got you inside out
Life will change baby there's no doubt
We're on a Roller Coaster Ride

Mommy, mommy I want more
Please take me to the candy store
Daddy, daddy, money please
What I just ate was such a tease
And I will be a good girl, good girl
Even if it kills me, kills me
I will be a good girl just for you

And I feel something coming over me
And this time it's not you
Up and down the merry go round
Slam the bumper cars too
Take me on the ferris wheel
You know I love to ride
I am strong, I am tough
And I promise not to cry
So I try and I try to smile yes I smile
Understanding nothing on this roller coaster ride

Get your cotton candy, get your tickets here
Get your mom a Valium
Get your dad another beer
I feel love and I feel hate
We are pathetic yet so great
Blind at times that cause effects your fate
So step right up baby see the show
See cancer breathe and cancer grow
See more than you'll ever need to know
So I try and I try to smile yes I smile
Understanding nothing on this roller coaster ride
Yeah understanding nothing on this roller coaster ride










Summer time, winter time
Spring time, fall
Everybody knows there's no time at all
Left of the center yeah,
Right of the road
Straight down the middle, nobody goes
So smile if this world has got you inside out
Life will change baby there's no doubt
We're on a Roller Coaster Ride
Yeah smile if this world has got you inside out
Life will change baby there's no doubt
We're on a Roller Coaster Ride
