I want a big red nose I want some floppy shoes
I want a squirtin' flower squirt it on you
Like all the bad clowns do
I want to juggle bowling pins in the sun
I want to 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 corn dogs I don't care
As long as I am there
I'll hand out baseballs at the dunk tank
I'll ride my funny car laughing 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, carney man, carney man

The human cannonball I'll rise above it all
Up higher than the trapeze I can fly
Oh God I'm gonna die
I just gotta get high
I am a carney worker I make two bucks
Every hour come to find out this job it fucking sucks

'Cause I'm a carney man, I'm a carney man
I'm a carney man, I'm a carney man
You need a corndog
I can tell you need a corn dog, 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
