I've been pounded ground down and smashed all around
in the cycle....rock cycle
I've been thrown up and blown up to the ozone
in the cycle..rock cycle
I've been eroded, corroded and motherloaded
Melted and pelted and ore smelted
I've been chipped and dipped and stripped and skipped
in the cycle...rock cycle

I've been aerated and slated and conglomerated
in the cycle...rock cycle
Been seized and squeezed and wheezed and sneezed
in the cycle...rock cycle
Been pressed and stressed to form a mountain crest
Been torn down and worn down and reborn
Going round and round like wheels on the ground
in the cycle...rock cycle
Moving slowly, that's the way to go

Going round and round.....
It's elementary to be sedimentary rock
in the cycle...rock cycle
It's trees chic to be a metamorphic rock 
in the cycle...rock cycle
If you've been two kinds of rock, well you can't talk
Till the cycle's complete - now that's a feat!
Get serious be an igneous rock
in the cycle....rock cycle

Well I was molten lava down in Java 
in the cycle....rock cycle
I was a fossilized bean in the Pleistocene 
in the cycle...rock cycle
I was a cobblestone in ancient Rome
A marble Buddha in Calculate
Been around the world in three billion years 
on my cycle...rock cycle
Moving slowly, that's the way to go 

Been around the world.....
