Description
This song was inspired by friends of mine who are all about risk-taking and high-adventure, motors sports and such. Not my thing, as you can clearly hear in the lyrics of this song.

Lyrics
The World A-Rollin’ By

Don’t need to look for danger.
I’ve no desire to thrill me.
Got no use for high adventure.
Risk and fear do not fulfill me.
And I barely have the power
Just to get up in the morning.
Don’t feel temptation / for any situation / that may require a warning.

Don’t want to climb no mountains.
Don’t want to sail the sea
I’ve a yearning just to sit here
With this guitar upon my knee
I don’t need to go explorin’
where no man has gone before.
I’ve had enough now / of tryin’ new stuff now / and I don’t want no more.

Peace and comfort - quiet time - rest and relaxation.
Worry-free, I’m inclined, without hesitation.
Today I have no interest in reaching for the sky.
I just want to sit and watch the world a-rollin’ by.
Rollin’ by… Rollin’ by…
I just want to sit and watch the world a-rollin’ by.

Don’t want to go free-fallin’
White water’s not attractive
If danger should come callin’
Just consider me inactive
I don’t need to try a hobby
if a helmet is required
I got no reason / It just ain’t pleasin’ / The risk is not desired!

Peace and comfort - quiet time - rest and relaxation.
Worry-free, I’m inclined, without hesitation.
Today I have no interest in reaching for the sky.
I just want to sit and watch the world a-rollin’ by.
Rollin’ by… Rollin’ by…
I just want to sit and watch the world a-rollin’ by

Just a folk singer. Well - mostly a folk singer, but I like to try just about every style a middle-class white guy from Mid-Michigan can sincerely try. Be sure to check out my "band" — I used to play R&R with these guys back in the 70s, but now we'... [see more]
