The Merry-Go-Round in the Sea by Randolph StowDo not think less of anyone for hating this if they had to read it in high school. I had to as well and I despised this book. I actually grew up in Geraldton in the 70s and 80s and it seemed as though not much had changed since the 40s, excpept mabe for the war. Hated hated hated it. Trying to explain to some first year teacher from Perth that how utterly boring Robs life was compared to our own was a fruiless task. They just couldnt get it. Now go forward in time 20 years and I decided to give it another go, Penguin classic 10 bucks why not? I fell in love with this story. It actually was excatly like my childhood, except for the war, and actually made me miss my hometown a little. Just a little mind you, ask anyone who grew up in Gero and left, what they think of it and im pretty sure youll understand. Stow writes from the heart and thats what I think I got out of it the second time. It made me miss my childhood but at the same time appreciate how lucky I was to grow up in Geraldton. So apolagies to my old english teachers for giving you so much grief over this book but for the love of God please dont inflict it on 15 year olds.
Machine Gun Kelly - Merry Go Round (With Lyrics)
Songwriter's mom inspired "Merry Go 'Round'
You could argue that the song should have a fourth writing credit — for McAnally's mother. She inspired the tune after making a funny comment about all the cars parked at her neighbor's house in Texas. What a creative energy you and Musgraves have. I've been in town since I was I had been here a long time and through different publishing deals and record deals.
The story goes like this: Texas teen auditions for 'Nashville Star,' doesn't win but uses the experience as motivation to sharpen her pen so that she can release her own melodic country music years later. The result strikes deep; right to the bone. It's uncomfortably close to reality for millions of Americans without offering much hope. Kacey Musgraves may have followed the same path as Miranda Lambert , but her debut single 'Merry Go Round' stands on its own as an honest review of the anchor that can be small town life. It's a song for rural Americans that feel trapped by rural America.
Mary and I were the perfect picture of love But my world started spinnin' around 'Til it wasn't enough I tried to hang on to the heaven she made just for me But when I slipped and fell it drove her to hell And lord knows that I hate to see. Mary go round, Mary go round Mary I wish you'd stop takin' your heartache to town Why can't you see, that free love ain't free You'll spin 'til you fall to the ground Mary I wish that you'd never found The Mary go round. Nah she's not the first to discover the Devil's playground But this ain't no game and these demons ain't playing around They'll make her believe they Can drain all her pain with a drink And if she sinks below this burn in my soul To watch them all laugh as they sing. You'll spin 'til you fall to the ground Mary I curse the day that you found The Mary go round. Please click here if you are not redirected within a few seconds.
