Buffy Sainte Marie – “Little Wheel Spin and Spin”

 

Little Wheels Spin and Spin

Big wheels turn around & around (2x)

 

Merry Christmas Jingle Bells

Christ is born and the devils in hell

Hearts they shrink Pockets swell

Everybody know and nobody tell

 

Little Wheels Spin and Spin

Big wheels turn around & around (2x)

 

Oh the sins of Caesars men

Cry the pious citizens

Who petty thieve the 5 & 10s

And the big wheels turn around and around

 

Little Wheels Spin and Spin

Big wheels turn around & around (2x)

 

Blame the angels, blame the fates,

Blame the Jews or your sister Kate

Teach your children who to hate

And the big wheels turn around and around

 

Little Wheels Spin and Spin

Big wheels turn around & around (2x)

 

Turn your back on weeds youve hoed

Silly sinful seeds youve sowed

Add your straw to the camels load

Pray like hell when your world explode

 

Little Wheels Spin and Spin

Big wheels turn around & around (2x)

 

Swing your girl fiddler say

Later on the piper pay

Do see do, swing and sway

Dead will dance on judgement day

 

Little Wheels Spin and Spin

Big wheels turn around & around (4x)
