"Now, I thought I would talk about today
For your consideration, as the world turns
As the world turns, read in all these scriptures
About the world, find out that the world does turn"

As the world keeps spinning, we live these days
Dollar bill done drove the whole world crazy
While sittin' on the porch letting ganja blaze
Never hesitate a moment to enhance my phrase

Since I needed that escape I take my pull
Seen the thugs on the corner trying to act all cool
Pretty much out of character
I look right through, their transparent exterior

You in my book gettin' written and I'm the derriere
Thought you was peepin' me but I was aware of ya
You peep my ill expressions, how I just glare about
Trying to trace my inner world and my whereabouts

Well, try on, try on
I'm watchin' everythin' that's going down
And it ain't nothin' that I ain't been around
The same ghetto but a different town

Well, I remember growin' up in the PAC
It was a whole lot of love in my family
I had clothes on my back and shoes on my feet
Times we didn't have a lot but that was fine with me

In good times and even bad times
Whether rainy, grey sky or the sunshine
Life was so much simpler, I didn't realise it then
But time has definitely made me a wiser man

The world keeps turnin' round
And time just keeps on movin'
The world keeps turnin' round
And time just keeps on movin'

Sunday mornin' in the church just singin' a song
Mama gave much praise 'cos her soul was strong
When I was young I used to do lots of thangs was wrong
I never thought about till one day she was gone

Now, my daddy passed on about a year before
Reminiscin' as I glance at the fishin' pole
But these things gotta happen so we all can grow
And now they spirits much freer than they was befo'

So fly on, fly on, fly on, fly on, fly on, fly on, fly on
Fly on, fly on, fly on, fly on
'Cos there's angels in the midst
And they're guidin' and watchin' me every day
And even though at times I let it get to me
Just a little and I go astray

We keep marchin' on and on
Young militants will watch and now we're growin'
With kids of their own, as it all unfolds
As the world keeps turnin' on, the world keeps turnin' on

The world keeps turnin' round
And time just keeps on movin'
The world keeps turnin' round
And time just keeps on movin'

The world keeps turnin' round
And time just keeps on movin'
The world keeps turnin' round
And time just keeps on movin'

The world keeps turnin' round
And time just keeps on movin'
The world keeps turnin' round
And time just keeps on movin'

The world keeps turnin' round
And time just keeps on movin'
The world keeps turnin' round
And time just keeps on movin'
