Malvina Reynolds: Song Lyrics and Poems  


Notes: words and music by Malvina Reynolds; copyright 1967 Schroder Music Company, renewed 1995.

Sun is round, moon is round,
And a wheel was made to roll,
It's over the hill and down, down,
And satisfy my soul.

Wheel was made to roll, roll,
Standing made for square,
Wheel was made to roll, roll,
Carry me ev'rywhere.

Paddle your feet along the street
And over the grassy ground,
Roll along and rolling sweet,
And that's why the wheel is round.


Roll in the sun, roll in the rain,
Roll in the wind and snow,
Wheel was made to roll, roll,
And I was made to go.


Bird flies in the sunny skies,
Fish swims in the sea,
I ride on the bumpety roll,
Wheels were made for me.
