All Kinds of Kinds
Miranda Lambert Lyrics


Ilsa was an acrobat who went and fell in love with that
Horatio the human cannonball
A wedding 'neath the big top tent with barkers clowns and elephants
Sideshow family oddities and all

The dog faced boy howled out with joy
As the tattooed lady was crying
Ever since the beginning to keep the world spinning
It takes all kinds of kinds

Thomas was a congressman with closets full of skeletons
And dresses that he wore on Friday nights
Phyllis was a pharmacist, a dab of that, a pinch of this
Concocted to suppress her appetite

When the children were fiddlin' she'd slip 'em some Ritalin
And wait for Thomasina to arrive
'Cause ever since the beginning to keep the world spinning
It takes all kinds of kinds (all kinds of kinds)
All kinds of kinds

When I play this old guitar from children's shows to smoky bars
I take a break and think about the past
When I stood up in geometry and everybody stared at me
And I tossed my test into the trash

I scratched off my number while hitching out under
That bush league population sign
Ever since the beginning to keep the world spinning
It takes all kinds of kinds

But some point the finger, let ignorance linger
If they'd look in a mirror they'd find
That ever since the beginning to keep the world spinning
It takes all kinds of kinds (all kinds of kinds)
All kinds of kinds (all kinds of kinds)
All kinds of kinds

Yeah yeah
Ooh
Oh yeah

Her huge ❤ for animals and Muttnation Foundation

Christina Kilcher

Why is this song so underrated? The tune, the lyrics - just perfect!

Tales from the Leash Bernie & Amy

Bcuz ACM don't want a woman with ideas that aren't stuck in 1950. They don't want THE REAL DEAL. They want unrealistic BS

G DL

X Zxxx I say that same thing but apparently that was why it didn’t receive a lot of airtime

Dana Adams

What would be offensive about truth. People please

X Zxxx

@G DL wait what... I know like 2 companies run the radios but wtf is offensive

G DL

I know I’m very late but this song got very little radio play because of what they considered “controversial and offensive lyrics” figure that one out.

Tina Turnbull

This song has a way of touching my heart. We need more tolerance and acceptance in our society of differences. We need to understand that this world works BECAUSE we are different and not all the same. Yes, it may cause conflicts, but think of the learning opportunities!

Corey Klaustermeier

Exactly. People often criticize others for not being exactly like them but if everyone thought and acted the exact same way many of us would be dead because we wouldn’t have 95% of the medicines and technologies we have today.
