I was the only dancer
To the gay quadrille they play
And I was the man with the calloused hands
Who danced the night away
And mine was the only laughter
Heard that night on the air
And mine was the conversation
With a child who never was there

And I was the only player
In the scene they wrote for the clowns
And I was the man who could dance on air
The man who could sing for hours
And mine was the only passion
Spent that night in the game
And mine was the only voice to be heard
In the circus that never came

And I knew if she came
That she'd never stay
And I knew if she came
She'd leave right away
I was born to be happy
I was born to be sad
And I wasn't born to be to be on my own
Cuz that's bad

And I knew if she came
That she'd never stay
And I knew if she came
That she'd leave right away
And I was born to be happy
I was born to be sad
And I wasn't born to be on my own
Cuz that's bad

And I was the only dancer
To the gay quadrille that they play
And I was the man with the calloused hands
Who danced the night away
And mine was the only laughter
Heard that night on the air
And mine was the conversation
With the child who never was there
