THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH

 
 

WELCOME WELCOME COME ON IN
THE SHOW'S ABOUT TO BEGIN
SIT RIGHT DOWN AND HAVE YOURSELF A BALL
THERE'S FREAKS AND GEEKS AND BEARDED LADIES
SOMERSAULTS AND SOME ARE CRAZIES
CHECK OUT THE POSTERS ON THE WALL


IF YOU WANT TO TAKE A PONY RIDE, STEP INSIDE...

 

AND WHEN THE CIRCUS ALL SHUTS DOWN
GO PUT YOURSELF TO BED
DON'T LOOK DOWN AND DON'T FEEL HURT
IT'S STILL THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH

 

FUNNY MIRRORS ON THE WALLS
ELEPHANTS AND POPCORN BALLS
LOSE YOURSELF JUST FOR THE NIGHT
SOAK IN ALL THE SMELLS AND SOUNDS
FEET THAT NEVER TOUCH THE GROUND
ENJOYING THE SPOTLIGHT


IF YOU WANT TO SWING ON THE TRAPEZE, THIS WAY PLEASE...

 

AND WHEN THE CIRCUS ALL SHUTS DOWN
GO PUT YOURSELF TO BED
DON'T LOOK DOWN AND DON'T FEEL HURT
IT'S STILL THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH

 

IF EVERY DAY WAS LIKE THIS
IT PROBABLY WOULDN'T BE MUCH FUN
GO ASK THE LION TAMER
HE'S NOT THE ONLY ONE....

 

AND WHEN THE CIRCUS ALL SHUTS DOWN
GO PUT YOURSELF TO BED
DON'T LOOK DOWN AND DON'T FEEL HURT
IT'S STILL THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH
