The end has come and found us here with our toys scattered all around us here
The puzzle that we never found an answer for
Still asks us darlin' just what all the games were for
And here we stand in a box of sands
Where's the playground Susie
You're the one who's supposed to know her way around
Where's the playground Susie if I don't stay around if I don't stay around
[ strings ]
The carousel has stopped us here it twirled a time or two and then it dropped us here
And still you're not content with something about me
But what merry-go-round can you ride without me
To take your hand how would you stand
Where's the playground Susie if I decide to let you go and play around
Where's the playground Susie if I don't stay around if I don't stay around
Where's the playground Susie...

    I think it's about two people who are at a crisis in their relationship, and he's accusing susie of playing games. 'where's the playground? ' means 'look - where's the playground? We're not in a playground, we're grown up now. We need to sort this out. '
