"Jersey Clowns" as written by and Josh Rouse....
Tell the boys in the back
That Danny's crashed his Cadillac
He ain't hurt anybody
At least he wasn't drinking

He was just outside Detroit
You know his roads they are all broke
He can't get any place
There ain't no point in driving

He's flying in today
He's been all around the U.S.A.
He's seen every state
At least twice

Who's gonna break the news
That his lady's run loose
You know it's getting around
I've gotta tell him the truth

But, I don't want to do it
Don't want to bring him down
Cause being down
With some jersey clowns
Can almost drive you insane

What a shame he's been away
Cause he's worked so hard
To pay those bills
He's got two kids

From his marriage before
And I wonder what makes him stay
You know it ain't the first time
She's played him like this

A thousand times
It won't be the last

Who's gonna break the news
That his lady's run loose
Yeah, it's getting around
I've gotta tell him the truth

But, I don't want to do it
Don't want to bring him down
'Cause being down
With some jersey clowns
Can almost drive you insane

Tell the boys in the back
If they've got some room for Dan
I'm sure he'd be grateful
He's coming home today

Who's gonna break the news
That his lady's run loose
Yeah, it's getting around
I've gotta tell him the truth

But, I don't want to do it
Don't want to bring him down
'Cause being down
With some jersey clowns

Can almost drive you insane
Being down
With some jersey clowns
Can almost drive you insane
Insane

    General CommentThis song is amazing, I think it's obviously about having to tell a good friend something that'll kill them (like they're being cheated on)

    General CommentYeah - it's about someone who has to tell someone that his wife has left him for someone else - his friend has been through a lot, supporting the family, the children, and has just returned, but now he has to face this news, and his friend doesn't want to tell him because he doesn't feel that good people should be upset by stupid people who aren't worth feeling bad for.
