Paul Revere & The Raiders – Ups And Downs lyrics

Now, things was looking golden, baby
Everything was fine
You never made no sign
That you had changed your mind
I guess I was mistaken, girl
To count so on you
What else could I do
Time to pay my dues
Well girl, I've been torn up before
But I can't handle that once more
Well I been down for a long long time
And now it's time to reach my mind
There's lots of pain upon this earth
Girl, I've had my money's worth
I have had my ups and downs and all around
Girl, I've tried to change your way of thinkin'
Tried to make you see
Well, livin' here with me
Is where you ought to be
But it didn't seem to make no difference
It never changed your world
Or stopped your social twirl
You're still the same old girl
And now, I've been torn up before
But I can't handle that once more
I been down for a long long time
But now it's time to reach my mind
'Cause there's lots of pain upon this earth
And girl, I've had my money's worth
I have had my ups and downs and all around
I've been up, down, all around now baby (up, down, all around)
I've been up, I been down, I been all around now baby (up, down, all around)Yeah we've both been up and down and all around baby(up, down, all around)You go up, you go down, you go all around now baby (up, down, all around)Yes, I'm up, I'm down, all around now baby (up, down, all around)
Up and down and all around

    Its a song of strength, and continuation against the pain of a relationship disappointment. (first off one of the lyics is wrong. Its I "can handle that once more" not "i can't" co'mon he's had his money's worth of pain on this earth, he had his share of ups and downs and all arounds. Now. So he's saying its fine, i'll get through it again, though I tried to change your way of thinking etc. Nothing worked. Time to pay my dues!
