Lyrics as sung by Melanie

 

Donít know where Iím goiní
But Iím always going round and round
Thereís another side to this life Iím liviní
Thereís another side to this life

 

Think Iíll go to Nashville maybe go to Tennessee
This ten cent life Iím living gonna be the death of me
Thereís another side to this life Iím liviní
Thereís another side to this life

 

My whole worlds in and uproar and my whole worlds upside down
Donít know where Iím going but Iím always going around and around
Thereís another side to this life Iím liviní
And thereís another side to this life

 

Always upside down,

 

Donít know where Iím goiní
But Iím always going around and around and around and around
Think Iíll take me a sailing boat and sail around and around and around
Whole worlds in and uproar and my whole worlds upside down
Whole worlds in and uproar and Iím always going around and aroundÖ

 

Original Lyrics

 

Would you like to know a secret
It's just between you and me
I don't know where I'm going next
I don't know where I'm gonna be

 

But that's the other side to this life
I've been leading
But that's the other side of this life

 

Well my whole world's in an uproar
My own world's upside down
I don't know where I'm going
But I'm always bumming around
And that's another side to this life
I've been leading
And that's another side of this life

 

Well I don't know what I'm doing
Half the time I don't know where I'll go
I think I'll get me a sailing boat
And sail the gulf of Mexico

 

And that's another side to this life
I've been leading
And that's another side of this life

 

Well I think I'll go to Nashville
Down to Tennessee
The ten cent life I've been leading here
Gonna the be the dead of me

 

But that's the other side to this life
I've been leading
But that's the other side of this life
And that's another side of this life

 

Would you like to know a secret
It's just between you and me
I don't know where I'm going next
I don't know where I'm gonna be

 

But that's another side to this life
I've been leading
But that's another side of this life
