Lyrics Turning Turtle

Turning turtle?
What exactly does that mean?
It means my whole world goes flippity-flop like a turtle on its back
And I don't know my up from my down my east from my west my topsy from my bottomsy
If you ring with something broken on a thursday
I'll make new, with my glue pins and thread
What you bring when I've awoken on a friday
I will mend and then spend the day in bed
Children, Satur, Sun and mondays are just everything is fun days
But in the second week
I wear a frown
For, I know that after tuesday comes the Topsy get's bad news day
It's the dreaded second wednesday
When from nine to noon my life turns upside down
Fast is slow, low is high stop is go and that is why
Every second wednesday is a hurdle
From eight to nine, all is well then I roll over on my shell
And all because the world is turning turtle
Day is night, dog is cat black is white, thin is fat
That is why I'm loosening up my girdle
I cannot help this charming troop
Don't lock me 'cos I'm in the soup
And why because the world is turning turtle
Oh, woe is me
I'm as opposite as I can be
I long for thursdays when the world is drab
When will it cease?
Now my life resembles
War and Peace
That Tolstoy certainly had the gift of gab
I couldn't get through it
Bottom's top, yin is yang peace and quiet's
Sturm und Drang
Tuesday nights my blood begins to curdle
East is west, in is out and that is why I need to shout
Oh no the world is turning turtle
Oh, if you had come some other morn'
You wouldn't have found me so forlorn
But since the day that I was born second wednesdays is on the fritz
I couldn't mend this to save my soul if this keeps up, I'll dig a hole
You say life's a cherry bowl but wednesday's full of pits
Tell us, can you fix this drum?
Well, today it's looking glum
Can you mend this crack?
And broken string?
Well perhaps, if you all lend a hand
Our fingers are at your command a broken songbird still can sing
Let's do the turtle swing
Oh, woe is me now I'm on my head now can that be?
Well you say woe but I say lucky you
Lucky me?
Yes, here on your head
A is far behind and led by Zed
It's good to get a different point of view
You see, when the world turns upside down
The best thing is turn right along with it
I do see from down here things look right side up ha-ha-ha-ha
I wouldn't mind seeing things from that angle
Sounds like fun
Can we?
Very well, flippity flop
Near is far is here is there turtles turning everywhere
Things are getting clear
Well, knock on wood, my dear
When you change the view from where you stood
The things you view will change for good
I never thought of things that way
Now wednesdays are
She never thought of things that way my favorite day
Now wednesdays are her favorite day
'Cos that's the day
I'm quite contrary and now, thanks to cousin Mary
I have changed to be exact
I love the fact
The world is turning
The world is turning turtle, turtle, turtle turtle, turtle, turtle
