Go Go Round Lyrics

by Gordon Lightfoot

Alone upon the sidewalks of despair
It was there she wandered
With her suitcase in her hand
Her fate she pondered

Only a go-go girl in love with someone who didn't care
She met him on a night so rare when her friends were there
And the band was groovin'

When he gave a glance
That said how much he would like to meet her
How was she to know at the time
He would mistreat her

In her case she danced for him
Although a hundred eyes were turned her way
And before the set was through
He knew she would be his loved one

Only a go-go girl in love with someone who didn't care
Only twenty-one, she was a young girl just in from somewhere

He's playin' up in Michigan with a group
They call The Intended
With a kiss, and a promise, he was gone
The song was ended

But as she walks, she waits for him
The pavement is a shoulder for her tears
But in her heart she knows there is no way
She can hope to change him

Only a go-go girl in love with someone who didn't care
Only twenty-one, she was a young girl just in from somewhere

Only a go-go girl in love with someone who didn't care
A go-go girl in love
