THE CIRCUS IS IN TOWN

THE BIG TOP IS HERE, THE CIRCUS IS IN TOWN.

WHAT A TREAT FOR THE CHILDREN BRING THEM DOWN.

BELLY LAUGHS, ELEPHANTS AND TALL GIRAFFES,

DANCING BEARS.  A NIGHT OF FUN FORGET YOUR CARES.

THE CIRCUS IS IN TOWN.  THE CIRCUS IS IN TOWN.

 

ITíS SCHEDULED FOR NOON, WHEN THE BAND BEGINS TO PLAY.

SLIGHTLY OUT OF STEP THEY MARCH, A COLORFUL PARADE.

PAINTED CLOWNS, A MASK TO HIDE THE HUMAN FROWNS.

A CANDY COATED FANTASY, OH, WHAT A SIGHT TO SEE.

THE CIRCUS IS IN TOWN.  THE CIRCUS IS IN TOWN.

 

THE DAZZLING BIG TOP SHOW WAS PLEASING,

DARING FEATS AND HIGH TRAPEZING.

ALL THE PEOPLE WENT BELIEVING,

IN THE MAGIC OF THE DAY.

 

AND LATE THAT NIGHT WHEN ALL HAD LEFT,

WITH MOANS AND GROANS AND STRAIN AND SWEAT.

THE AGING CIRCUS SLOWLY CREPT,

INTO ANOTHER TOWN.  INTO ANOTHER TOWN.
