GETTING NOWHERE Irving Berlin 1945 as rec by Carole Carr w Geraldo & his Orch 1940's also rec by Bing Crosby w John Scott Trotter & his Orch 1946 A greyhound who has lots of speed Was surely bound to fail, For morning, noon and evenin' He'd be chasing his own tail! He was running around in circles, Running around in circles, Getting nowhere! A squirrel in a treadmill cage, Around and round he'd go; You'd think he'd be in a rage, But seems he didn't know He was running around in circles, Running around in circles, Getting nowhere! The man who runs a carousel Is often heavy hearted; He rides all day, but sad to say, He winds up where he started! So concentrate and clear your mind Of schemes that never last, Or you'll wake up some day and find Your chances all are past! You've been running around in circles, Running around in circles, Getting nowhere, Getting nowhere very fast! Running around in circles, Running around in circles, Getting nowhere! Running around in circles, Running around in circles, Getting nowhere! The man who runs a carousel Is often heavy hearted; He rides all day, but sad to say, He winds up where he started! So concentrate and clear your mind Of schemes that never last, Or you'll wake up some day and find Your chances all are past! You've been running around in circles, Running around in circles, Getting nowhere, Getting nowhere very fast! (Contributed by Peter Akers - December 2009)
