The Ups and Downs of a Sultry Relationship

&quot,Back To Square One&quot,

‘Round and ’round wij cannot zekering

Each hurting heart comebacks

The roller coaster makes us druppel

Wij keep repeating the same old hop

Continuing to yearn

‘Round and ’round wij cannot zekering

The same mistakes from the top

Nothing more to earn

Then, the roller coaster makes us druppel

Let’s take a pauze before wij speelgoedpop

Or wij’ll crash and burn

‘Round and ’round wij cannot zekering

Our efforts will start to flop

The more wij shove and churn

Spil wij rail, the roller coaster makes us druppel

On our goes wij need a bop

Maybe then wij’ll learn

‘Round and ’round wij cannot zekering

The roller coaster makes us druppel
