The circus takes leave from Amsterdam - it's 10 p.m., they need to move on
They lower the shakes as they rise their heads - when the trapeze girl comes along

I see a little girl named Suzanna, hiding with the elephants
She tells me she can't live without them - wishing a new day would never rise

If she could see herself in 40 years
Still no elephant for her to ride on
To see herself in 40 years
No great escape but I might be wrong

As the old man walles up to the horses and the clowns fake their own, last smiles
I see the parents got away with laughter - I guess their money made it worthwhile

To see myself in 40 years
Will I be there with my grandchildren
To see myself in 40 years
The same silly things, agan and again

But a dream's all right - won't harm to think out loud
I hope Suzanna's all right - alone in her zoo all night

Is there anybody out there who can give me a peace of mind
I am looking for an answer which's lately been so hard to find

To see myself in 40 years
Will I be there with my grandchildren
To see myself in 40 years
The same silly things, agan and again
