'Round and 'round, the years go 'round and 'round
And many a dream is lost in the nasty city sound¡­

Now she's down and out, everyone's above her
Tried everything a gal could try
She takes the notion that nobody loves her
And here's the reason why:

She came to the city like a good gal should
Found a little pad in a bad neighborhood
She learned about life and it was quite a shock
But now she knocks 'em down with the best on the block
Ah, right!

Yeah, and it's really a shame too,
'Cause she was her daddy's pride and joy

Daddy, won't you buy that pretty dolly for me?
It's the only toy I ever wanted
Won't you take me for a walk in the park?
I love the big brass band
And the chestnut stand
And that sad old man

'Round and 'round, the years go 'round and 'round
And many a dream is lost in the nasty city sound¡­

Now she's down and out, everyone's above her
Tried everything a gal could try
She takes the notion that nobody loves her

Oh, but she's wrong, you know,
Because I love her
