Swing, swing yourself along.
Stop to bang on the drum
at the circus.
Make your getaway.
Look out for lucky liger. I
shot the tiger, but I
tore my sweater on the lion's tooth.
You've got to fly
You've got to fly
You've got to fly away
from all the silly mimes
trying to get inside your head.
Don't let them in.

All right my brothers,
today is a very special day,
because today is the day
you have a moral breakthrough.
Mark it up on all your calendars!
Engrave this on all your lips.
For when I snap my fingers
you will awake from this sleep.
And then will be your time
to rectify the pillars of your mind.

Oh, gently take the time
to cleanse the filth that clouds your life.
For when you're clean
you'll see just how good a choice it be.

Na, na, na-na-na-na, etc

Swing, swing yourself along.
Stop to bang on the drum
at the circus.
Make your getaway.
Look out for lucky liger. I
shot the tiger, but I
tore my sweater on the lion's tooth.
You've got to fly
You've got to fly
You've got to fly away
from all the silly mimes
trying to get inside your head.
Don't let them in.

Oh, softly take this boat
and make your way, way back home.
Past the bears and through the crowd
and under the gate that's a scary shroud.
Don't be fooled, my dearest friend,
the world is a circus that never ends.
Escape the tents of Styrofoam
and let the loud illusion go.

Okay, when I say "go", I want you to grab everything you can, and run to the river. Okay, "Go!"

Swing, swing yourself along.
Stop to bang on the drum
at the circus.
Make your getaway.
Look out for lucky liger. I
shot the tiger, but I
tore my sweater on the lion's tooth.
You've got to fly
You've got to fly
You've got to fly away
from all the silly mimes
trying to get inside your head.

Don't. Let. Them. In.
