or
Bill Withers

Lookin' at the pictures of the places
That he'd been, an old man told me what he'd found
Said it don't make no difference whether you're
Out or whether you're in, though the world keeps
Goin' round and round. Goin' round and round.

Said he looked at the places talked of the faces that he'd seen
Then he turned the pictures upside down.
Said it don't make no difference how many places you've been
Said the world keeps goin' round and round.
Goin' round and round

Then he put up the pictures shook his head, and with a grin,
He talked about his ups and downs
Said it don't make no difference how many fixes you've been in
No, the world keeps goin' round and round
Goin' round and round.

Betty Joe Johnson, don't you pull no Daisy Mae on me
Daisy Mae she did me dirty, so I had to leave her for
Anna Lee. Anna Lee she had big street feet.
She spent her nights out on the row

So I started seeing Sally Jackson, I had to let Anna Lee go
Sally Jackson was a player
Had another man along with me
So I just took me one step backwards
Checked up on old Anna Lee
Anna Lee still had them street feet
Liked to dance all night and sleep all day
So I just took one more step backwards,
checked up on old Daisy Mae
Daisy Mae was still doin' dirty,
so I'll tell you what I had to do
Had to go just one step further Betty Joe Johnson
Yeah, and that's how I know you

Looked at the places talked of the faces in life he'd seen
Then he turned the pictures upside down
Said it don't make no difference how many places that you've been
Said the world keeps goin' round and round
Goin' round and round
