On the road to another town - put the tents up and take them down - my job is to walk the rope in this big top show.
We've got fun for everyone - the human cannonball and his toothless sons - they juggle midgets while on horseback then shoot dad out into a safety net. I know what I've been told - the bearded lady, she's got 6 toes - it's time for me to walk the rope in this 3 ring circus.
All those clowns they still scare me and why are all the girls talking funny - the lion tamer and the elephants are dancing in circles and wearing funny outfits. I ran away when I was 13 and now I'm one of those circus freaks - It's just something I dreamed about when I was young and now I'm in the greatest show on earth. So, on the road to another town, climb the ladder, maybe I'll fall down - but I've got my part to play in this big top show tonight. I know what I've been told, the bearded lady she's got 6 toes - It's time for me to walk the rope and be in this 3 ring circus.
