They say the world is spinning around
I say the world is upside down
They say the world is spinning around

I say the world is upside down
Oh yeah, all right

Looking at the world today
I am implored to say
So much war and poverty
While few enjoy prosperity

They say the world is spinning around
I say the world is upside down
They say the world is spinning around
I say the world is upside down
Oh yeah, all right

Looking at the world I agree
Oh what fools we mortals be
Morality is in demise
Immorality is on the rise

They say the world is spinning around
I say the world is upside down
They say the world is spinning around
I say the world is upside down

Oh yeah, too much injustice
How can there be peace?
Religious hypocrisy
Political tyranity
You see it my...
What about the children now?

Heey
They say the world is spinning around
I say the world is upside down
They say the world is spinning around
I say the world is upside down
They say the world is spinning around
I say the world is upside down
They say the world is sṗinning around
I say the world is upside down
Oh yeah,
Crime and violence
Poverty and starvation
Ecological calamity
Economic instability
What's wrong with humanity?
Have they lost their sanity?
For the love of vanity
What about the love, love now?
You know that we need it
What about the love, love, love yeah
