The Lyrics

subject of the parody:
Flyin’ too fast is the carousel; fighting hard are the two.
Flyin’ too fast is the carousel; what are they going to do?

Faster pacing, horses racing—
it’s disaster.

On a carousel,
on a carousel.

Fearing for their kids on charging horses,
parents are dismayed.
Two men fighting, punching faces—
it’s no game they play.
This can’t keep up; it will break up
and come tumbling down

Down, down, down…fall the two.
One down on the ground looks like he’s through.

He’s deceased; his hand flops open, as starts rigor mort’;
Guy’s absolved, so he will not face murder in the court.
Too bad Bruno didn’t make it, but he was doomed to die.

Off the carousel,
off the carousel
he flew and went down onto the ground,
and then his escapades were through.

Riding again on the train is Guy…
new fiancée too.
Riding along, and they meet a guy,
who asks of him, “Aren’t you…?”

Guy stalks off; the last time he met
with a train stranger:

He was put through hell
on a carousel,
from which Bruno fell.
For him, things weren’t swell.
For him there’s a knell.
But Guy’s doing well.

I like this. I have given you a genuine 555 vote but it will be lost amongst the 13 bogus votes this will get soon
