Who Sang Watchin’ It Go? The Everly Brothers

Release information
length: 2:26
Me, it seems I'm spendin' most of my time
Spendin' ten cents while I'm makin' a dime
Tryin' to make sense out of life's mixed up rhyme
Meantime I'm watchin' it go

The butterfly spins in his little cocoon
Thinkin' of songs that he'll be singing soon
So few will listen to the butterfly's tune
Me I'm just watchin' it go

Watchin' it go
Wantin' to know
Where do you go when you've been

Poor Cinderella she's bowin' her head
Tellin' some stranger what a hard life's she's led
Glass slipper's sound asleep under the bed
Sadly I'm watchin' her go

Prince Charming dressed in disarmin' disguise
Flashin' his charms as he's blindin' her eyes
Mornin' will hear ‘em say their sunshine goodbyes
Me, I've seen a few of them go

Watchin' it go
Wantin' to know
Where do you go when you've been

Me, like so many, I've tried so many things
Walkin' on crutches and callin' them wings
Wonderin' who's pullin' the puppeteer strings
Me, I'm just wantin' to know

Minds too confined they keep wantin' to roam
Lookin' for a life that will leave them alone
I hear ‘em singin' now they want to go home
Knowin' they never can go

Watchin' it go
Wantin' to know
Where do you go when you've been

Watchin' it go
Wantin' to know
Where do you go when you've been
