Katy Perry & Kacey Musgraves – Merry Go ’Round Lyrics

Play this song
[Verse 1: Kacey Musgraves]
If you ain’t got two kids by 21
You’re probably gonna die alone
At least that’s what tradition told you
And it don’t matter if you don’t believe
Come Sunday morning you best be
There in the front row, like you’re s’posed to
Same hurt in every heart
Same trailer, different park
[Pre-Chorus: Katy Perry & Kacey Musgraves]
Mama’s hooked on Mary Kay
Brother’s hooked on Mary Jane
And Daddy’s hooked on Mary two doors down
[Chorus: Kacey Musgraves & Katy Perry]
Mary Mary quite contrary
We get bored so we get married
And just like dust we settle in this town
On this broken merry go ’round
And ’round and ’round we go
Where it stops nobody knows
And it ain’t slowin’ down
This merry go ’round
[Verse 2: Katy Perry]
We think the first time’s good enough
So we hold on to high school love
Say we won’t end up like our parents
Tiny little boxes in a row
Ain’t what you want it’s what you know
Just happy in the shoes you’re wearin’
Same checks we’re always cashin’
To buy a little more distraction
[Pre-Chorus: Katy Perry & Kacey Musgraves]
‘Cause Mama’s hooked on Mary Kay
Brother’s hooked on Mary Jane
And Daddy’s hooked on Mary two doors down
[Chorus: Kacey Musgraves & Katy Perry]
Mary Mary quite contrary
We get bored so we get married
And just like dust we settle in this town
On this broken merry go ’round
And ’round and ’round we go
Where it stops nobody knows
And it ain’t slowin’ down
This merry go ’round
Mary Mary quite contrary
We’re so bored until we’re buried
And just like dust we settle in this town
On this broken merry go ’round
And ’round and ’round we go
Where it stops nobody knows
And it ain’t slowin’ down
This merry go ’round
[Outro: Katy Perry & Kacey Musgraves]
Jack and Jill went up the hill
Jack burned out on booze and pills
And Mary had a little lamb
Mary just don’t give a damn no more
