I was walking on the ground.
I didn't make a sound,
then I turned around,
and I saw a clown.
Had a frown.
Stood on a mound.
Started barking like a hound.

huh her ha hur ur
Clowny clown clown.

When I came to what I found,
he showed me something that was brown,
so we became great friends and
late in life, he got sick...
I gave him some soup, but he got
worse and asked for its purse.
It got it, but it was empty,
so it cried a plenty.
I wondered what to do.
I didn't know what to think,
so I got a drink.

And then I showed it
something that was round,
and it died, smiled,
and fell on the ground.

Clowny clown clown

Thinking back about those days
with the clown,
I get teary-eyed and really snide.
I think that deep down,
I hated that clown,
but not as much as Mr. Farr,
I'm going to go smoke a cigar.

Clowny clown clown.

I was walking on the ground,
I didn't make a sound
and then I turned around --
I saw a clown.

Clowny Clown Clown.

I hate you clown.
Your ugly frown.
Smiley lips.
Think I'll clip you across the nose, clown.
Want a cigar?
It'll get you real far haha
like Mr.Farr..get it?
Haha Mr.Farr?


(Coughs) See what a cigar'll do? HEHE!

Ugly Clown.

    General CommentI wouldn't define him as creepy but i can't help but notice that the entire song seems to written as if in some sort of psycholgical mental disorder. Specificly a thought disorder known as "clanging" often seen in Schizoprenia.

    The loose fitting nonsensical rhyming coupled with the bizarre deslusions of a clown and the underlying theme of Paranoia from his greater enemy "Mr Far" who seems to be spying on the singer leads me to think this song is about Schizoprenia or something very similar

    General CommentNot sure what this song is about, but Mr. Farr is the name of a character he played in 1991's Rubin and Ed. Perhaps he particularly hated playing Rubin Farr. Apparently he was in character as Rubin Farr during his infamous Letterman interview.
