What Goes Around Comes Around
Sandy Arnold / Georgia Middleman

lyrics

A bed’s where you’re supposed to be
Where a girl can dream
A safe place to go to sleep

But he made it hard and even to this day
It’s tough to close my eyes and drift away
In 1980 I woke up to that man
Who didn’t belong in my barracks
So I decided to make a plan

The next night he showed up
I’d put tacks down on the floor
And when I heard him scream
He didn’t bother me no more

You do your job
And you do it well
They don’t care what they put you through
They make your life a living hell
No, they don’t do nothing
So you have to move off post
And then those good old boys get hurt
And guess who they need the most
What I have found
Is what goes around comes around

I’d always give them something to think about
I’d say what if I was your sister
Or someone you cared about

You would have honored and protected her
Reacted differently
So why didn’t you do that for me

I was a good nurse…a good soldier
And looking at it now
I know I made a difference somehow

You do your job
And you do it well
They don’t care what they put you through
They make your life a living hell
No, they don’t do nothing
So you have to move off post
And then those good old boys get hurt
And guess who they need the most
What I have found
Is what goes around comes around
