"On A Carousel" as written by Graham Nash, Alan Clarke and Tony Hicks....
Riding along on a carousel, trying to catch up to you
Riding along on a carousel, will I catch up to you?

Horses chasing 'cause they're racing
So they ain't so far

On a carousel
On a carousel

Nearer and nearer by changing horses,
Still so far away
People fighting for their places just get in my way
Soon you'll leave and then I'll lose you
Still we're going 'round

On a carousel
On a carousel
'Round and round and round and round
round and round and round and round with you
Up, down, up, down, up, down, too

As she leaves, she drops the presents that she won before
Pulling ducks out of the water, got the highest score
Now's my chance and I must take it, a case of do-or-die

On a carousel
On a carousel
'Round and 'round and 'round and 'round
'Round and 'round and 'round and 'round with you
Up, down, up, down, up, down, too

Riding along on a carousel, trying to catch up to you
Riding along on a carousel, will I catch up to you?

Now we take our ride together
No more chasing her

On a carousel
On a carousel
On a carousel
On a carousel
On a carousel

    General CommentWell, it's a pretty self-explanatory comparison of a budding romance with a merry-go-round (carousel) ride. Not one of The Hollies' better-known songs, but it should be! It's put together so perfectly, I can't imagine changing a note. And it's just so 60s, the first riff whisks you right back like a time machine. Gotta love that!
