Lyrics:

Saw the ad in the paper: “Join the Circus!”,

So that’s what I did,

Got a suit and a red nose,

I’ve had this kind of dream since I was a kid,

In the tent, the orders kept coming,

“Fight the lions!” and then “Ride a horse!”,

At the start, I felt kind of dizzy,

By the end of the week, I felt even worse,

“Don’t you dare to cry!”, they told me,

”Never show your fear!”, they said,

“You are here for entertainment only,

If the people won’t laugh – you are dead!”,

All my life, I knew I would come here,

Every party, guess who was the clown?

On TV it looks very funny,

So can someone explain please, why I feel down?

One night, a bit after 03;00, I ran away, finally free,

All that time, I was too blind to see, I’ve made people happy, except me….

“Don’t you dare to cry!”, they told me,

”Never show your fear!”, they said,

“You are here for entertainment only,

If the people won’t laugh – you are dead!”.
