Turning turtle what exactly does that mean

It means my whole world goes flippity flop like a turtle on

It's back And I don't know

My up from my down my east from my west

My topsy from my bottomsy

If you bring something broken on a Thursday

I'll make new with my glue pins and thread

But you bring whatever broken on a Friday

I'll mend and then spend the day in bed

Children Satur Sunday Mondays are just

Everything is fun days

But in the second week I wear a frown

For I know that after

Tuesday comes the topsy get's bad news day

It's the dreaded second Wednesday

When from 9 to noon my life turns upside down

If fast is slow low is high

Stop is go and that is why

Every second Wednesday is a hurdle

From 8 to 9 all is well

Then I roll over on my shell

And all because the world is turning turtle

Day is night dog is cat black is white thin is fat

That is why I'm loosening up my gurtle

I cannot help this charming troop

Don't lock me 'cause I'm in this soup

And why Because the world is turning turtle

How always me I'm as opposite as I can be

I long for Thursday when the world is drab

When will it cease now my life resembles nar and peace

That tolstoy certainly had the gift but yeah

I couldn't get through it

Bottom's top ying is yang

Is in taias to men dry

Tuesday nights my blood begins to curdle

East is west in is out and that is why

I need to shout oh no

The world is turning turtle

Oh if you had come some other morn'

You wouldn't have found me so forlorn

But since the day that I was born

Second Wednesday is on the fritz

I could mend this to save my soul

If this keeps up I'll dig a hole

You say life's a cherry bowl

But Wednesday's full of pits

Tell us can you fix this drum

Well today it's looking glum

Can you mend this crack and broken string

Perhaps if you all lend a hand

Our fingers are at your command

A broken song but still can sing

Let's do the turtle swing

Oh woe is me now I'm on my head

How can that be

Well you say woe but I say lucky you

Lucky me

Yes Here on your head

A is far behind in letters I've said

It's good to get a different point of view

You see when the world turns upside down

The best thing is turn right along with it

I do see from down here things seem right side up

I wouldn't mind seeing things from that angle

Sounds like fun

Can we

Very well

Flippity flop

Near is far and here is there

Turtles turning everywhere

Things are getting clear

Then knock on wood my dear

When you change the view from where you stood

The things you view will change for good

I never thought of things that way

She never thought of things that way

Now Wednesdays are my favourite days

Now Wednesdays are her favourite days

'Cause that's the day I'm quite contrary

I'm now thanks to cousin Mary I have changed to be exact

I love the fact

The world is turning turtle turtle turtle
