Clown

lyrics

Clown
Did you see the lions
Jumping through the ring of fire
Did you hear the orchestra play the opening of the show

And the ballerinas
are they dancing for the audience
Can you see the glitter
and smell the animals

’Cause I don’t see any circus tents
this town is low on such events
Why are you acting a clown
there’s no circus in town

I can hear you talking
But the words don’t make 
no sense to me
You are going backwards
and twisting me around
’Cause I don’t see any circus tents
this town is low on such events
Why are you acting a clown
there’s no circus in town

And baby stop those foolish games you’re playing
’Cause I can hear just 
what you’re saying
And if you want me around don’t make me be a clown
Don’t make me be a clown
’Cause I don’t see any circus tents
this town is low on such events
Why are you acting a clown
there’s no circus in town
