I woke up this morning and prayed to Gypsy Rose Lee.
"Gypsy can you help me I'm struggling you see."
I heard her laughing over by the slot machine
She said, "Baby, baby, baby, I had the strangest dream."

Having breakfast at the circus
With the lions and the clowns
Everybody's laughing just hanging around
But nobody's gonna love you unless you help tear down
Breakfast at the circus with the lions and the clowns

People walking a tightrope
Head in the lion's jaws
They need a little mercy
So come on Santa Claus
And when you give your mercy
Won't you save a drop for us
We'll remember you, and your family too when they greet us on the bus

Having breakfast at the circus
With the lions and the clowns
Everybody's laughing just hanging around
But nobody's gonna love you unless you help tear down
Breakfast at the circus with the lions and the clowns

My ears are ringing and my mind is a mess
Give me one goodnight kiss
To help me forget the past

Wooh what a party
Everyone was there
Great to see you where've you been?
Hey who does your hair?
Free balloons and hats and soon the seal will catch a ball
And after that the acrobat will try to top the show

Having breakfast at the circus
With the lions and the clowns
Everybody's laughing just hanging around
But nobody's gonna love you unless you help tear down
Breakfast at the circus with the lions and the clowns
