 THE CIRCUS CAME TO TOWN

BUT, UNFORTUNATELY I WASN’T AROUN’.

 

THE CIRCUS CAME TO TOWN.

THE CLOWNS WERE THERE

BUT I COULDN’T BE.

I HAD GONE TO ORLANDO TO SIGHT-SEE.

 

THE CIRCUS CAME TO TOWN.

THE GIRAFFES, THE LIONS, THE TIGERS TOO.

JUST LIKE AT THE ZOO.

 

THE CIRCUS CAME TO TOWN.

THE MAN WHO TOOK CONTROL WAS THE RINGMASTER

SO THEY COULD DIVERT A DISASTER.

 

THE CIRCUS CAME TO TOWN.

THERE WAS COTTON CANDY GALORE

JUST INSIDE THE FRONT DOOR.

 

THE CIRCUS CAME TO TOWN.

EVERYONE HAD A BALL

WATCHING THE MAN WHO WAS TEN FEET TALL.

 

THE CIRCUS CAME TO TOWN.

IT HAD A LION TAMER SHOW.

YOU HAD TO SEE THAT BEFORE YOU GO.

 

THE CIRCUS CAME TO TOWN.

THERE WAS A BEARDED LADY.

THERE WAS A MIDGET.

THERE WAS EVEN A HORSE NAMED GIDGET.

 

THE CIRCUS CAME TO TOWN.

THERE WAS A TIGER SHOW.

ONE OF THE TIGERS WAS MEAN.

IT TRIED TO CREATE A SCENE.

 

THE CIRCUS CAME TO TOWN.

THERE WERE LITTLE CARS

THAT WERE HOUSED BEHIND BARS.

 

THE CIRCUS CAME TO TOWN.

YOU COULD WIN A TEDDY BEAR.

GUYS SPENT A LOT OF MONEY

TO SHOW THEIR SWEETHEARTS THEY CARE.

 

THE CIRCUS CAME TO TOWN.

THERE WERE GAMES OF DARTS.

THEY WERE ON THE GROUNDS AT ALL PARTS.

 

THE CIRCUS CAME TO TOWN.

THERE WERE WAFFLE CONES FOR EVERY KID.

DOUG PLANNED TO GET ONE BUT HE NEVER DID.

 

THE CIRCUS CAME TO TOWN.

THERE WAS A MAN TO GUESS YOUR WEIGHT.

HIS GUESS EACH TIME WAS LEFT UP TO FATE.

 

THE CIRCUS CAME TO TOWN.

THERE WAS A MAN TO GUESS YOUR AGE.

HIS BOOTH WAS ALL THE RAGE.

 

THE CIRCUS CAME TO TOWN.

THERE WAS A HAMMER TO SWING

SO YOU COULD MAKE A BELL RING.

 

THE CIRCUS CAME TO TOWN.

THERE WERE PLASTIC DUCKS AFLOAT.

SOME WERE EVEN IN A BOAT.

 

THE CIRCUS CAME TO TOWN.

YOU COULD THROW DIMES IN A DISH.

YOU COULD EVEN MAKE A WISH.

 

THE CIRCUS CAME TO TOWN.

BUT, AS I SAID EARLIER

I WASN’T AROUN’.

 

THE CIRCUS CAME TO TOWN.

I WISH I HAD BEEN THERE.

I WOULD NOT HAVE HAD A CARE.

 

MAYBE NEXT YEAR.
