I was just a little girl
When I ran away from home
The circus welcomed me to run

Well, I was the star of a show
And I had my own review

You were handsome
I was funny
And you had lots of money
Oh, but nothing as precious as you

We fell in love on the lover's trapeze
You carried me up to my dreams

And I swept you away to the dizzling heights
You showed me the ropes, all right
You were a feather in my arms
And you were the wind beneath my tights

A picture of youth, that's you, my dear
And you're still one hunk of a guy
If you ever let me go, I shall die
I'm never going to let that happen
Don't you worry, darling

We fell in love on the lover's trapeze
You carried me up to my dreams

We fell in love on the lover's trapeze
You carried me up to my dreams

And though we are older
And slightly less sober
The show's never over

Ah, can't we retire
Never, darling

We've still got each other to please
