Stop the world from spinning round
So I don't keep on falling down
Stop the world, let me get off and rest for awhile
Stop the world for today
Let me get off and drift away
To a place where once again I can smile

         Can't stop clouds outside my window from gathering 'round
         Can't stop the howling wind blowing that warning sound
         Can't stop the hard rain soon falling on the ground
         Guess I'll read that old book on the shelf
         That teaches how to love my neighbor like myself

Stop the world and let me climb
In between the hands of time
Stop the world, it's turning way too fast
Stop the world, I've had enough
Stop the world and let me off
Till today has long become the past

Grandma said, “take it easy”, life works out best that way
But it's so hard to slow down in a mobile global race to judgement day

         Can't stop the dark clouds gathering 'round
         Can't stop the final deal, no doubt soon coming down
         And when that last train leaves the station, there'll be no doubt where it's
         The answer's found in this old book from the shelf
         That teaches how to love my neighbor like myself *

* Second chorus inspired by Arlo Guthrie's "Last Train"; one of the Woodstock Generation's finest songs.
