Clowns (Demise of the European Circus with No Thanks to Fellini) -Mark-Almond Band

So long to yesterday
You were a good friend to me
Maybe you were the best of day[s]
But I was too blind to see
And the old clowns cry
As the children ran out to wave
As the circus went by
As the circus went by

Take down the sideshows and the colored lights
And leave not a trace on the ground
Pack the canvas that served you well
Mr. Yesterday’s Circus leaves town
And the old clowns cry
As the children ran out to wave
As the circus went by
As the circus went by

Old Rosie the Gypsy she’s a-goin’ home
For the curious they don’t pay anymore
She’d talk about the days gone by and prophesy
And for a dollar she’d tell you all the things that she saw
And the old clowns cry
As the children ran out to wave
As the circus went by
Kissing all things goodbye

The carousel sounds are fading now
And the horses are broken and sad
As today says good-bye to yesterday
And the best things that a small boy could have
And the old clowns cry
As the children ran out to wave
As the circus went by
As the circus went by

All dreams must die
All dreams must die
All dreams must die
All dreams must die
