(Ooh, Ooh, Woh, Woh, City Clown, City Clown).

I met a town that I stayed in,
No filth, no grime, no slum, papa.
And here is where my papa should've been,
I saw them place my mama, should've seen.
And it's there that put me down down down,
Then it made me the City Clown.
I'd play guitar, I'd sing a few old songs,
The folks here know I didn't belong.

It's a pretty town,
Mama it's a pretty town,
But I'm the City Clown.
(City Clown, City Clown, City Clown).

It's a pretty town,
Oh Lord it's a pretty town,

(City Clown, City Clown, City Clown).

Pretty town, pretty town, it's such a pretty town,
I'm the City Clown.
(City Clown, City Clown, City Clown, City Clown).

I told my mama, I told my mama
It's such a pretty town (Pretty Town),
It's such a pretty town,
But I'm the City Clown.
(City Clown, City Clown, City Clown, City Clown).

Oh!
Yeah a pretty pretty pretty pretty (Pretty Town), pretty pretty pretty town,
I'm the City Clown.
(City Clown, City Clown, City Clown, City Clown).

Oh, told them by the load,
"You know that you know,
You know that I've known it too long" (Pretty Town),
It's a pretty town, It's a pretty town,
It's a...
