World Will Turn

(VERSE)

1600 horses pulled a ship out of the ocean

Could've been a vintage clipper or a yellow submarine

Sailors all were singing songs of love and devotion

Saxophones was blowing a love supreme

 

Seems that they were searching for a higher education

Tried to heal an ailing nation but they brought it to its knees

They slapped each others shoulders and exclaimed congratulations

But they lost a generation never to be seen

 

(CHORUS

One thing baby I can say

We'll be there on judgment day

One thing baby I have learned

With or without you the world will turn

(VERSE)

Got me a little princess

She's strung out again in Paris

Passed out in the twilight

Can you hear the angels sing

Buried here with sealant wax in a giant scarlet coffin

Filled it up with poetry, and the sons of kings

I treated you like a queen

 

(CHORUS)

One thing baby I can say

We'll be there on judgment day

One thing baby I have learned

With or without you the world will turn

 

(VERSE)

Somewhere in the Carolinas

on the streets of this old beach town

I spied a young cowboy 

And he played me a song

I said come sit beside me

And hear my sad story

I'm a dying young cowboy

I know that I've done wrong

I know that I've done wrong

 

(CHORUS)

One thing baby I can say

We'll be there on judgment day

One thing baby I have learned

With or without you the world will turn

One thing baby I can say

We'll be there holdin' hands on judgment day

One thing baby I have learned

With or without you the world will turn

One thing baby I can say

We'll be there on judgment day

One thing baby I have learned

With or without you the world will turn

You know its true
