about

Written at 73 Greenwood Ave, Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
I'm not reinventing the wheel... so I may as well try and make a good, round one.

lyrics

A GOOD, ROUND WHEEL
(S. Puchalski)

My father was like you or me
He swayed in the breeze like a limb on a tree
But, grew quietly into an oak
Then he tempered some steel and cured it by road
And made a good, round wheel

My mother, she was just the same
Ne’er cast a stone; Never passed the blame
In this cold, cruel world
A cold world

This wheel goes round, fast then slow
By no reason of fate, you reap what you sow
This wheel’s invented miles before
Since it’s already made I’m just willing to roll
On a good, round wheel

Your brother lived life on the run
The closest in age and the prodigal son
When that road would appear
He would let it ride but he just couldn’t steer
A good, round wheel

While my sweetheart felt right at home
With a treacherous sea below a boat to row
And the glorious sound of an ocean

She’s my sweetheart from stern to bow
Who braved each wave and made it somehow
I see that ripple from the shore
But my road is paved
And I’d soon rather roll
On a good, round wheel

She said, “Home is for a good meal, to wear a few hats and
get a few raw deals and pray, ‘won’t you deliver me?’”
At the end of each day we see a little bit more
At the end of each day we see a little bit more
At the end of each day we see a little bit more
with a good, round wheel
