lyrics

they caught the critter clean
pinned him down on a carousel
caught the fucker clean
nailed him down on a merry-go
round the ragged dreams
screwed him tight in a bottle-o'
screwed in tight in a bottle-o'

and they sailed around the globe
in a ragged man-o-war
oh they cut right through the sea
cast their bets on a bottle-o'
sailed their ships in a bottle

and they wore their ragged songs
and they gloried in their robes
and the ocean was their bed
cast the critter to the bottom-o'
drowned the fucker in the bottom-o'

and they go on the merry-go
round they go on the merry-go
they go on the merry-go-round they
go on the merry-go

and we know the wicked deeds!
and we wake up in the night!
lay my head on a carousel
lay my head on a merry-go

and the critter is alive!
he's overcome the deep!
craned his neck from the bottom-o'
broke the neck of the bottle-o'
broke the neck of the bottle-o'

and o!
and o!

when the world has turned
and the sea give up its dead
when the order over-turned
cast your bets on a bottle-o'
bed you down on a miracle round

and i wear my ragged song
and i glory in my robe
and the ocean is my bed
churning down to the bottom-o'
yearning deep in the bottom-o'

and the critter is alive!

and they (we) go on the merry-go
round they (we) go on the merry-go
they (we) go on the merry-go round they (we) go on
the merry-go they (we) go on the merry-go round
they (we) go on the merry-
go round they (we) go on the merry-go round they (we)
go on the merry-go round
