I went to the circus
To waste some time
The barker was yelling what's on
So I laid up my money
And I waited in line
The circus was just like home
The crowd had gathered
So I walked on by
To backstage places unknown
I could tell by the fire
And the moon and the sky
The circus was just like home
There were animal cages
And animal tails
Woman who move like a poem
With their vampire faces
And beautiful nails
The circus felt just like home
The strong man was dancing
In the clothes that he borrowed from a girl in the chorus line
And the gypsy was drinking like there's no tomorrow with the
Ringmaster who was drinkng faster
Blessing everybody with wine
Behind at the lion tamer running around
Looking like a Christian in Rome
They were loading the cannon with the Portuguese clown
And the circus was just like home
The strong man was dancing in the clothes that he borrowed
From a girl in the chorus line
And the gypsy was drinking like there's no tomorrow with the
Ringmaster who was drinkng faster
Blessing everybody with wine
I went to the circus
It was cash in advance
The barker was yelling what's on
He said come to the circus
You can smell the romance
See all the tigers and elephants dance
Thousands of suckers paid up for the chance
And the circus was just like home
