Musical suggestion of the day: Send in the clowns - Juddy Collins




Send in the clowns

Isn't it rich? Aren't we a pair?
Me here at last on the ground and you in mid-air
Send in the clowns.

Isn't it bliss? Don't you approve?
One who keeps tearing around,and one who can't move.
But where are the clowns?
Send in the clowns.

Just when I stopped opening doors,
Finally knowing the one that I wanted was yours,
Making my entrance again with my usual flair,
Sure of my lines - no one is there.

Don't you love farce? My fault, I fear.
I thought that you'd want what I want - Sorry, my dear.
But where are the clowns? Quick, send in the clowns.
Don't bother, they're here.

Isn't it rich? Isn't it queer?
Losing my timing this late In my career?
But where are the clowns? There ought to be clowns.
Well, maybe next year.
