Lyrics:

hit the road out of nowhere
I had to jump in my care
And be a rider in a love game
Following the stars
Don't need no book of wisdom
I get no money talk at all
She has a train going downtown
She's got a club on the moon
And she's telling all her secrets
In a wonderful ballon
Oh she's the heart of the funfair
She's got me whistling her private tune

And it all begins where it ends
And she's all mine, my magic friend

She says: Hello, you fool, I love you
C'mon join the joyride, join the joyride

She's a flower, I can paint her
She's a child of the sun
We're a part of this together
Could never turn around and run
Don't need no fortune teller
To know where my lucky love belongs, oh no

Cos it all begins when it ends
And we're all magic friends

She says: Hello, you fool, I love you
C'mon join the joyride, be a joyrider (Roxette)

I take you on a skyride
A feeling like your spellbound
The sinshine is a lady
Who rocks you like a baby

She says: Hello, you fool, I love you
C'mon join the joyride, be a joyrider

Enjoy
