juggling balls are falling to the brown grass
and on the shoulders of a clown
and the acrobat has lost his wits.
he wants to be let down.

it's two hours from auburn to here.
it's 20 bucks _ in this casino with free beer.
you're upstairs losing all your college money.
i'm downstairs in the circus waiting tables in the lounge.
and someone screams "bingo" in the back of the big grey parlor.

i told you i'd follow you anywhere-
that whenever you needed me, you'd find me standing there.
now my pockets are empty and i've just lost my mind
and the sword swallowing woman has rid me from behind.
and someone in the back screams "bingo" in back of the big grey parlor.

the key to the hotel room doesn't work.
i just got fired. hey, so, i guess neither do i.
i love you, but i'm lonely at night.
i love you, but i'm lonely at night.

someone screams "bingo"
someone puts their hands down on the other end of the table, head in their hands in the back of the big grey parlor, in the back of the big grey parlor.
