Watching The Wheels – John Lennon (official music video)


People say I’m crazy Doing what I’m doing They give me all kinds of warnings To save me from ruin When I say that I’m o.k. they look at me kind of strange Surely you’re not happy now you no longer play the game People say I’m crazy Dreaming my life away Well they give me all kinds of advice Designed to enlighten me When I tell that I’m doing Fine watching shadows on the wall Don’t you miss the big time boy you’re no longer on the ball? I’m just sitting here watching the wheels go round and round I really love to watch them roll No longer riding on the merry-go-round I just had to let it go People asking questions lost in confusion Well I tell them there’s no problem Only solutions Well they shake their heads and they look at me as if I’ve lost my mind I tell them there’s no hurry… I’m just sitting here doing time I’m just sitting here watching the wheels go round and round I really love to watch them roll No longer riding on the merry-go-round I just had to let it go I just had to let it go I just had to let it go

  1. This should've been what Julian's childhood was like. I find it sad that to this day Julian isn't ready to marry because he doesn't want ever make his father's mistakes, ie young father, divorce, child neglect.
    His mother did an outstanding job as a single mum. Julian is so forgiving and has a deep unconditional love for his half brother ❤

  4. JOHN LENNON……..WATCHING THE WHEELS……..FROM DOUBLE FANTASY……..HE WAS JUST TOUCHIN GROUND WHEN HE WAS TAKEN AWAY

  5. Back in ‘91 I went thru a very rough patch & identified with this song…I really just sat there ‘watching the wheels go round & round.’

  6. Hey John, i saw you in yesterdays movies !!

  7. I shouldn't be writing this given my position in work but as I work I humm this beautiful song and the lyrics are real true to earth and I actually get away with it RIP John i'm just sitting hear watching the wheels go round and round………………..

  8. If a person learn from his mistake and make correction in ther future, that person should be respected and nothing should be held against him.

    John Lennon was and still is a legend and will live as such–a musician, father, and husband as long as human are on this planet.

    A man that never tasted the love and comfort of a father and rose with such a speed and less time to fame, money, and public attention around the world didn't do much wrong with his first son.

    He needed a woman like Yoko Hono in his life to compliment his life, with all respect to his first wife, whom I consider to be a very fine and humble woman.

    His music and lyrics are immortal.

    His premature execution by the hand of a coward idiot, whom shot him from the back and didn't even gave him a warning or chance to defend himself is beyond comprehension.
    I still feel it was yesterday😂😂😂😂

  9. theres so much good to say about him and his mates id kill to of got to hang with him for a week he just wanted to live a normal life and have some fun along the way but evil always says kill it before it grows

  10. lyrics People say I'm crazy

    Doing what I'm doing

    Well, they give me all kinds of warnings

    To save me from ruin

    When I say that I'm okay, well they look at me kinda strange

    "Surely, you're not happy now, you no longer play the game"

    People say I'm lazy

    Dreaming my life away

    Well they give me all kinds of advice

    Designed to enlighten me

    When I tell them that I'm doing fine watching shadows on the wall

    "Don't you miss the big time boy, you're no longer on the ball?"

    I'm just sitting here watching the wheels go round and round

    I really love to watch them roll

    No longer riding on the merry-go-round

    I just had to let it go

    Ah, people ask me questions

    Lost in confusion

    Well, I tell them there's no problem

    Only solutions

    Well, they shake their heads and they look at me, as if I've lost my mind

    I tell them there's no hurry, I'm just sitting here doing time

    I'm just sitting here watching the wheels go round and round

    I really love to watch them roll

    No longer riding on the merry-go-round

    I just had to let it go

    I just had to let it go

    I just had to let it go

  11. There's a way better version of this where the asian broad gets marked by a laser on her forehead and great things happen after that >:)

  12. JOHN LENNON WAS AN EVIL MAN. SOMEBODY PLEASE EXPLAIN TO ME HOW LENNON CONSTANTLY PREACHED ABOUT ANAL RIGHTEOUSNESS, YET HE WENT HOME EVERY NIGHT AND BEAT HIS WIFE YOYOMA. NOTE HOW EVERY SONG HE WROTE, HE MENTIONS HOW HE'S GOING TO BE FIRST IN LINE TO THE SCHLONG AND HOW SUCCULENT, RIPE AND TENDER THEY ARE. BUT THEN HOW DO YOU EXPLAIN WHY THEY QUIVER AND THIRST FOR DEEP ANAL INTIMACY? LENNON KNEW THIS ALL TO WELL WHICH IS WHY HE MADE WAR WITH GOD AND WAS SCARED TO GO TO VIETNAM…INSTEAD PREACHING HOLIER THAN THOU RIGHTEOUS FUMES OF RIPE ANAL STINK. GLAD HE'S DEAD. GOOD RIDDANCE. TRUMP2020

  13. We arrived in Manhattan the morning after John was murdered, went to to the Dakota and Central Park, thousands mourned, we just have to let it go.

  14. We were there when it was written, sang and watched it move the world. And for a moment, a wonderful moment, we believed.
    But the world did not believe.
    I now live in the luxury of a liberal bubble, with all the comforts of affluence, and mourn the loss of those days of wonder, beauty and Grace.
    May the world someday IMAGINE & Believe what John Lennon saw and sang.

  15. What do you want to be when you grow up? Happy. Google "Global Truth Project" to learn the truth of life and experience the unity of life.

  16. If I had to choose a song about my life this is it. Im a grateful recovering heroin addict 14 years now. I left all those people i used heroin with and changed my life. This song is them asking me don't u miss the high life? Im grateful for my new life. A simple calm life free of my demons replaced with love and children. Thanku John.

  17. This man was coming back into his own, writing from the heart. He had many songs ready to share we shall never hear.

  18. A multimillionaire pontificating on how good it was of him to take time off to look after one child, whilst the mother was at home too.

  20. La gente dice che sono pazzo
    Fare quello che sto facendo
    Bene, mi danno tutti i tipi di avvertimenti
    Per salvarmi dalla rovina
    Quando dico che sto bene, mi guardano un po 'strano
    "Sicuramente non sei felice ora, non giochi più"
    La gente dice che sono pigro
    Sognando la mia vita di distanza
    Bene, mi danno tutti i tipi di consigli
    Progettato per illuminarmi
    Quando dico loro che sto bene guardando le ombre sul muro
    "Non ti perdi il big time boy, non sei più sulla palla?"
    Sono solo seduto qui a guardare le ruote che girano e rigirano
    Adoro davvero vederli rotolare
    Non più in sella alla giostra
    Ho dovuto lasciarlo andare
    Ah, la gente mi fa domande
    Perso nella confusione
    Bene, dico loro che non c'è problema,
    Solo soluzioni…
    Bene, scuotono la testa e mi guardano, come se avessi perso la testa
    Dico loro che non c'è fretta, sono solo seduto qui a fare tempo
    Sono solo seduto qui a guardare le ruote che girano e rigirano
    Adoro davvero vederli rotolare
    Non più in sella alla giostra
    Ho dovuto lasciarlo andare
    Ho dovuto lasciarlo andare
    Ho dovuto lasciarlo andare

  21. I'm sick of seeing ugly old Yoko in everything John did, Yoko is the main reason the Beatles split up… she's a talentless ham. You buy a John Lennon album and only get half an album because of all the crap from Yoko sounding like a dying bird. He sure must have loved her to let her dis his fans in such a way.

  22. This has to be THE BEST songs ever written about personal introspection and life direction and self awareness. It's John Lennon answering his critics and singing you a personal accounting of his life at that stage.

  23. sounds sort of like nihilism but I can relate sometimes ..I tell them there are no problems, only solutions. I can relate with that, surrounded by 'no' people. Or when it seems like that

  24. The irony is that he fought so hard to stay in the US, as Nixon tried to have him deported. And he lived in NYC believing it's safe. Had he gone back to Britain most likely he'd be alive today.

  25. Hace 39 años se fue John de nuestro mundo. Tengo quince años, y este hombre ha sido objeto de admiración e inspiración para mí desde que era pequeño. Y para muchos también. Hoy, su alma está en un lugar mejor, y su legado permanece vivo en nuestros corazones.
