Denny Carleton

 The Other Way Around by Denny Carleton. A garage rock legend in his native ( I believe) Cleveland, Denny Carleton’s pure pop attitude shines brightly through his music. This song becomes a sing along rather quickly and the turn of phrase indicates that everything is not the way it seems

                                 The Other Way Around
I've been listening to what's been going down How you took my smile and turned it into a frownI've been reading some books I've been checking the sounds Now I see for that for sure your world is upside down Its the other way around
You and I don't see eye to eye All those half-truths those little white lies
I've been staying away since you been putting me down Either way I don't like to sound It's the other way around
Cause Phil told Robbie and Joe told Joe that sooner or later Danny would know then Fred told Chris and Chris told Lorraine the way these rumors circulate it's a crying shame 
In my city there's petty politics same old guys same old tricks but there's an escape I check my options out all of you know what I'm talking about
It's the other way around
