There once was a boy, Jack was his name
He flew down the stairs in a wicked way
His father was a teacher, his mother a charm
He works and he works from day till dawn

This boy has a secret, it lies in his hands
The people all circle and circle around
This boy has a secret, it lies in his heart
The carnies all circle and circle around

By today, by today watch him win
By today, by today watch him win

There's money in his pockets, there's money in his jeans
Just follow the people to the fair after dark
There's money in his wallet, there's money everywhere
Just follow your father to the fair after dark

This boy has a secret, it lies in his hands
The people all circle and circle around
This boy has a secret, it lies in his heart
The carnies all circle and circle around

By today, by today watch him win
By today, by today watch him win

The fall of the people, the fall of the fair
Lost in the crowd are the stares and the stares
The fall of the people and the champion horse
Tired of waiting and waiting for long

This boy has a secret, it lies in his hands
The people all circle and circle around
This boy has a secret, it lies in his heart
The carnies all circle and circle around

By today, by today watch him win
By today, by today watch him win
