About Round and Round

"Round and Round" is a popular song by Joe Shapiro and Lou Stallman published in 1956. A version of the song was recorded by Perry Como for RCA Victor on January 15, 1957 and was a big hit that year. The song would prove to be Perry Como's last over-all number one on the Billboard charts. The song spent two weeks at number two on Billboard's Honor Roll of Hits. Como's version was noted for its instrumental buildup, including the counterpoint melodies sung by the Ray Charles Singers, who gradually join in on the refrains, and gradually drop out before the song's fade. This song was recorded by Anne Murray in 1993 for her Croonin' album but it was only released as a bonus track for a special version of her "Croonin'" LP that was released by Heartland Records (1994). Anne Murray said she was always a huge fan of Perry Como and she had appeared with him in Perry Como's Lake Tahoe Holiday on October 28, 1975. The mass market release of "Croonin'" has Anne singing Perry's hit "Wanted". UK singer Jimmy Young also covered "Round and Round" in the UK in 1957 and it charted briefly. The song was also covered by Norwegian singer Nora Brockstedt and Jens Book-Jenssen in 1957 and by Rosemary Clooney (UA single 50076, released in 1966) (Rosemary Clooney discography).

Find a wheel and it goes round, round, round
As it skims along with a happy sound
As it goes along the ground, ground, ground
Till it leads you to the one you love

Then your love will hold you round, round, round
In your heart's a song with a brand new song
And your head goes spinning round, round, round
'Cause you've found what you've been dreamin' of

In the night you see the oval moon
Going round and round in tune 
And the ball of sun in the day
Makes a girl and boy wanna say

Find a ring and put it round, round, round
And with ties so strong that two hearts are bound
Put it on the one you've found, found, found
For you know that this is really love

Find a wheel and it goes round, round, round
As it skims along with a happy sound
As it goes along the ground, ground, ground
Till it leads you to the one you love

Then your love, you'll hold her round, round, round
In your heart's a song with a brand new song
And your head goes spinning round, round, round
'Cause you've found what you've been dreamin' of

In the night you see the oval moon
Going round and round in tune 
And the ball of sun in the day
Makes a girl and boy wanna say

Find a ring and put it round, round, round
And with ties so strong your two hearts are bound
Put it on the one you've found, found, found
For you know that this is really love

Find a ring, out it on
For you know that this is really love, really love, really love
