"Closing time" as written by Peter Anders Svensson, Magnus Sveningsson and Lars-olof Johansson....
It's closing time, and a well-known fact
Is that life is very short
It's closing time says the band
And it seems that life is very short

the baker in town was fat as a cow
At the end of the day he ate all remains
The baker in town was murdered one day
An order was left of 200 pies
We've all got some vice
After closing time

so this is it!
The carnival is now heading for a new town
We hope you enjoyed the show
The party at gordon's developed into a chaos
But the report says no one was hurt
And we've also heard that charley actually did solve the case
The gruesome killing of the bakerman
Finally, the clown left the circus to become a plumber
He says : "suits me just fine, and life is very fine
And this is closing time"

it's closing time, and a well-known fact
Is that life is very short
It's closing time says the band
And it seems that life is very short
La lalala lala lalala
La lala la la
La lalala lala lalalala
La lala la la la

life - greatest of all
Life - strongest of all
But at the same time
Most delicate time
Could well end in a moment

    My InterpretationGordon was having a party in his garden. He ordered 200 pies for all the guests. But he forgot and never went to pick up the pies.
    His party turned into a chaos because there was no pie, like the guests were promised.
    The baker, who always eats all the remains, tried to eat the 200 pies that were left over. The baker ate himself to death.
    Charley, being lost and hopeless as he always in, stopped by the bakery to get a doughnut. He discovered the dead body, and figured it out.
