we have to cross the street

a circus tent went up last night
and now we cannot sleep
we’re all a little scared of clowns
often when one comes around
we have to cross the street

we love to see the jugglers and
we love the tightwire act
but clowns are known
to steal your stuff
and that’s a simple fact

creepy not so creepy clown

we love to ride the rides they have
the elephants are never bad 
but daddy was a circus clown
and he stole everything we had

we used to love the circuses
each one of us enjoyed them
but it took years to start again
so now we just avoid them
