This song serves as the third track on the "Sing Along Songs" cassette, where it is given the title "That's What Makes The World Go 'Round". A sing-along version of this song is featured on the DVD "Liking Yourself, Inside & Out".


Herky: You never felt anything quite like flyin'...
Revvin' Evan: That's 'cause I'm a truck,
And I never thought of tryin'.
Herky: I love the air...
Revvin' Evan: Well, I love the ground...
Both: That's what makes the world go round.

Herky: I've got to show ya sights that you've never seen.
Revvin' Evan: The thought of heights turns my headlights green!
Herky: I prefer up...
Revvin' Evan: And I like down...
Both: That's what makes the world go round.

Herky: Ya know, a boat doesn't know it can float,
'Til it takes to the sea.
(Rooster calls)
Revvin' Evan: My wheels are firmed and flanner
Where a truck's wheels are to be.
Both: Don't you agree?

Herky: I love to hover...
Revvin' Evan: And I'm earthly bound...
Both: That's what makes the world go...
Herky: But don't you wanna try, though?
Both: That's what makes the world go round.
