» Send In The Clowns


Isn't it rich, 
Aren't we a pair 
Me here at last on the ground, 
You in mid-air 
Send in the clowns 
Isn't it bliss, 
Don't you approve
One who keeps tearing around, 
One who can't move 
Where are the clowns? 
Send in the clowns 

Just when I stopped opening doors 
Finally knowing the one that I wanted was yours 
Making my entrance again with my usual flair 
Sure of my lines - no one is there 

Don't you love farce, 
My fault I fear 
I thought that you'd want what I want, 
Sorry my dear 
But where are the clowns 
There ought to be clowns
Quick send in the clowns

Isn't it rich, isn't it queer 
Losing my timing this late in my career 
And where are the clowns 
Quick send in the clowns 
Don't bother they're here.
