It's circus time in this old town
So wipe off each and every frown
The clowns are here to lead the way
In this lovely month of May.
So come on people, pay your fee,
You won't be sorry, I can guarantee.
There will be animals big and small
Even a purple dog on a giant ball.
The lions and tigers are in their cages
Making the ringmaster work for his wages
The lions leap through the rings of fire
Without even seeming to flinch or tire
Cute monkeys in their costumes play
As they're all dressed up for this special day
They ride around on their little bikes
As they look and laugh at all the tikes.
In come the horses, prancing so gracefully
As their riders stand and bend one knee
The horses all donned in colors bright
Try the best for their riders delight
They you know the end is near
As the performers pack up their gear
So it's off they go to a nearby town
To brighten up yet another frown.
