It’s been so very many years
Since the circus came to town
I guess there’ll be a lot of tears
Soon as it’s no longer round.
I worry bout the children’s joys
Watching silly circus clowns
What shall they do, those girls and boys
To help melt away their frowns ?
I wonder if we’ll ever see
A zoo on wheels once again
I can’t imagine it will be
A good plan for now or then.
So we’ll just have to make-believe
With lots of drums and loud noise
And set-up tents you can perceive
Full of fuzzy hairy toys
We could hang photos on the wall
Tell me if that sounds too queer
But this will never do at all
There are no animals here !
