"What Goes Around" is a song recorded by The Beatles drummer Ringo Starr. The recording was produced by Don Was and written by Rick Suchow, and released by Starr on his critically acclaimed 1992 Time Takes Time album.

On this track, Starr is lead vocalist and plays drums, with members of both the Bonnie Raitt band and Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers joining him; personnel includes Benmont Tench on piano and organ, James Hutchinson on bass, Michael Landau and David Grissom on guitars, and Andrew Sturmer, Roger Manning and Andrew Gold on background vocals.

The song was the album's finale and featured a Hey Jude-like repeating end chorus. Time Magazine wrote about the song, "'What Goes Around' features Harrison-like guitars gently weeping in harmony, an extended coda a la 'Hey Jude', and at the end a cryptic spoken message. The phrase is either 'All the same' or 'I buried Paul'."[1]
