Round and Round

Words and Music by Lou Stallman and Joe Shapiro
Recorded by Perry Como, 1957

Find a wheel and it goes round, round, round,

      Dm7     G          C   G7   C
As it skims along with a hap-py sound,

G7     C
As it goes along the ground, ground, ground

         Dm7      G                C
Till it leads you to the one you love.

Then your love will hold you round, round, round
In your heart's a song with a brand new sound,
And your head goes spinning round, round, round
'Cause you've found what you've been dreamin' of.


       F         Dm7            C
In the night you see the oval moon

       Dm7      G7        C
Going round and round in tune,

         F       Dm7        C
And the ball of sun in the day

         D        D7        G    G7
Makes a girl and boy wanna say.

Find a ring and put it round, round, round,
And with ties so strong that two hearts are bound,
Put it on the one you've found, found, found,
For you know that this is really love.


G7      C    G7     C
Find a ring, put it on,

        Dm7         G7            C
For you know that this is really love, 

Dm7 G7      C    Dm7   G7    C
    Really love,     really love.

Lampooned on "Saturday Night Live" as if singing while lying down and virtually asleep, Como's relaxed style served him better than many people realize; when he died in May 2001, his professional career had spanned nearly 70 years.
