I’ve been on this Ferris wheel before
And I have sat there at the top
With Annabelle, Irene and Susan
And I just wanted the ride to stop
And it didn’t matter who
There was nothing she could do
To make me feel the way I feel when I’m with you.

I’ve been on this Ferris wheel before,
But it’s never felt like this.
Outside of lingerie commercials,
I never thought you could exist
And yet you’re sitting there,
Catching moonlight in your hair, saying,
“Come on, darling! I can take you there!”

If I were you, I would keep a paramedic on speed dial
Cause if you get any closer, if you get any closer my heart is gonna pop.

We were on that Ferris wheel
When a voice came on the PA and said, “It’s closing time.”
Well, if I was Mark Zuckerberg,
I’d buy the park and keep the operators there all night.
We’d laugh and sing and have our fun
And then we’d watch the morning sun
Riding on that Ferris wheel.
Riding on that Ferris wheel.
