"Around The World" as written by Claus Norreen and Soren Rasted....
I've been around the World - hey hey
I've been around the World - hey hey

In the kitchen where I'm cooking what is good for me
Spices from the Globe
Little by little is the finest meal
It's half the type for hope
Come and see

You mix it all together in your dreams
Ingredients from the Seven Seas, and I
I'm realizing things ain't what they seem
That's the riddle of it
That's the spirit of it
That's the power of life

I've been around the World - round the world
And I've seen it all - seen it all
I've been around the World - round the world
'Cause the wind will always rise or fall

I've been around the World - round the world
And I wanted to see - see it all
I've been the only girl - round the world
All surrounded by mystery

In the living room I'm cleaning up from top to floor
Place I love the most
Wall is covered up with all my souvenirs
I got from coast to coast
Come and see

You mix it all together in Your dreams
Ingredients from the Seven Seas, and I
I'm realizing things ain't what they seem
That's the riddle of it
That's the spirit of it
That's the power of life

I've been around the World - round the world
And I've seen it all - seen it all
I've been around the World - round the world
'Cause the wind will always rise or fall

I've been around the World - round the world
And I wanted to see - see it all
I've been the only girl - round the world
All surrounded by mystery

I'm still coming around
I keep chasing dreams
Girl I keep coming around
Hey hey

I keep coming around
And I can never stop
Girl I keep coming around
'Cause if I do a lot

Around around
And around the World

I've been around the World - round the world
Hey hey - seen it all
I've been around the World - round the world
All surrounded by mystery

I've been around the World - round the world
And I've seen it all - seen it all
I've been around the World - round the world

Sun will always rise and fall - round the world

    General CommentI adore the words of this song! Very underrated in my opinion. To me it means hungry for change, and positivity. "I'm still coming around I keep chasing dreams...". Nice song that really suited that lovely time of my life...

    General CommentThis draws from the experience of Aqua travelling around the world when promoting Aquarium and due to the success of Barbie Girl. Lene was the only girl in the group, and with all the different sights, sounds and smells the group experienced are all mentioned. Spices from the globe, different cuisine, all surrounded by mystery.

    My InterpretationI am guessing that the song Around the World by Aqua is a combination of recalling their memories being around the world and traveling around the world while doing activities such as cooking using various ingredients from various places-with the lyrics in the kitchen where I'm cooking what is good for me, spices from the globe. Additionally, the lyrics in the living room where I'm cleaning up from top to floor, wall is covered up with souvenirs I got from the coast is another part of the song that gave me the idea that this song symbolizes positive nostalgia in regards to past travel experiences. I fortunately first heard this happy song in the early 2000s when I was stationed in Yokosuka Japan through the U.S. Navy, the song Around the World by Aqua was on a music cd that I purchased from one of the liberty ports that the naval ship I was stationed on made a temporary stop at.
