Bring On The Clowns!

Bring On The Clowns!

Down, down, down
Coming, around, around
Where are the clowns
Now, now, now?

Life bringing us all
Down, down, down
Bring on the clowns
Now, now, now!

If only for a while,
To make us all smile,
Smile, smile,
Where are the clowns?
Now, now, now!

Where are the clowns
To alleviate our fears
and not to drown
in cascading flood of tears
Now, now, now?

Bring on the clowns
To bring much needed joy
Back to our children’s playgrounds
To hear their joyous laughter
A future for our new generation
To carry on forever after!

Bring on the clowns
Nowhere to be found
As we live in lockdown
I fear a social breakdown
So please, I scream
Bring on the clowns
Now, now, now!
