Round We Go Again

Sometime or other, there once was a King
who wanted to fight in a war
Plundering enemies' gold was the thing
with no blood spilled on his shore
Stealing is quite easy
when carried out with pride
No one would be monarch
of a Kingdom that has died
 
     Oil the axle, pump the tyres
     Give the wheel a spin
     One thing for sure, it's turned before
     Round we go again
 
The only thing a monarch needs
is plenty of gold on the shelf
Occupying foreign lands
is an easy way to wealth
Ruler kings need not look hard
to find a way to invade
Soon the treasure's carried home
by force or the greed of trade
 
     Oil the axle, pump the tyres
     Give the wheel a spin
     One thing for sure, it's turned before
     Round we go again
 
In a far-off future
waves of metal roll
made by those who ceased to be
crashing beyond control
When there's one survivor
this is evolution
The world just keeps on spinning
till it's final revolution
 
     Oil the axle, pump the tyres
     Give the wheel a spin
     One thing for sure, it's turned before
     Round we go again
