Le Cirque

The circus came to town today

It seems to want to stay

The bearded lady’s cryin’

We all can see underneath all of her fray

The clowns are attempting mass distraction

Their red ball noses only get bigger

No one’s buying their silly antics

The Wallendas perch on their trapezes

…shhhhh please make sure no one sneezes

As they battle the cross winds and breezes

Barnum and Bailey had never seen such outlandish crowds

They OOOOHHHH

They AAHHH

How loudly they cheer and applaud

The caged elephants gently shedding their tears

The caged lions and tigers nervously pacing about

We all know this aint grandpa’s childhood circus

In those days people ran away to join le cirque

The players in this clown show

We’re all watching on the daily

Would have never worked for Barnum and Bailey
