(carnival background: talking and noise)

I want a big red nose
I want some floppy shoes
I want a squirting flower, squirted on you
Like all the bad clowns do
I wanna juggle bowlin' pins in the sun
I wanna join the circus
The circus looks like fun

I'll sit and work the gate
Or i can guess your weight
I'll even sell the corndogs, i don't care
As long as i am there
I'll hand out baseballs at the dump tank
I'll ride my funny car, (just) a laughin'
All the way to the bank

'Cause i'm a carney man
I'm a carney man
I'm a carney man
I'm a carney man, a carney, carney, a carney hey

A human cannon ball
I'll rise above it all
Up higher than they trapeeze i can fly
Oh (God/shit) i'm gonna die
I am a carney worker, i make two bucks
Every hour come to find out, this job it (really/fucking) sucks

'Cause I'm a carney man
I'm a carney man
I'm a carney man
I'm a carney man, a carney man, a carney hey

You need a corndog i can tell
You need a corndog i can tell
I'm a carney man

    General Commentlol. This song is the best. "A human cannon ball
    I'll rise above it all
    Up higher than they trapeeze i can fly
    Oh (God/shit) i'm gonna die
