Lyrics
Hot winds blew down from the north

Cold winds blew up from the south

Sleigh bells ringing on July fourth

So help me baby shut my mouth



My wheels started running on low cost gas

Without a single knock or a ping

The birds in the trees began barking so fast

My hound dog started to sneeze



Chorus

My whole world turned upside down

The day you rambled into to town

The sun set east, the sun rose west

And the fish in the river did drown



The devil he handed out cookies and cake

Angels swore and spit on the ground

My whole world turned for heaven's sake

The day you started hanging around



My heart started running fast as it could

I felt love deep down in my feet

But turn it back around if you only would

Your love would make my life complete







The clocks ran backwards, going tock-tick-tock

The telephone chimed the hour

I put my shoe on under my sock

Added sugar to my coffee turned sour



I don't dare tell you that I love you so

The words would only come out wrong

I'm just hoping you will somehow know

That baby that's the short and long







My whole world turned upside down

The day you rambled into to town
