Merry Go 'Round by Kacey Musgraves

If you ain't got two kids by 21
You're probably gonna die alone
Least that's (1)________ tradition told you

And it don't matter if you don't believe
Come Sunday morning
You best be there in the front row
Like you're (2)________________ to

Same hurt in every heart

Same trailer, (3)__________________ park

Mama's hooked on (4)________ Kay
Brother's hooked on Mary Jane
Daddy's hooked on Mary two doors down

Mary, Mary quite contrary
We get bored, so, we get married
Just like dust, we settle in this town

On this broken
Merry go 'round and 'round and 'round we go
Where it stops nobody knows

And it ain't slowin' down

This merry go 'round

We think the first time's good enough
So, we hold on to high school love
Sayin' we won't end up like our parents

Tiny little boxes in a row
Ain't what you want, it's what you know
Just (5)__________ in the shoes you're wearin'

Same checks we're (6)____________ cashin'

To buy a little more distraction

Brother's hooked on Mary Jane
Daddy's hooked on Mary two doors down

Mary, Mary, quite contrary
We get bored, so, we get married
Just like dust, we settle in this town

On this broken
Merry go 'round and 'round and 'round we go
Where it stops nobody knows

And it ain't slowin' down

This merry go 'round

We're so bored until we're buried
Just like dust, we settle in this town

On (8)________ broken merry go 'round
