The Lyrics

I was going to do another song with this where the woman was asking the clown to come back, but it didn't work out.
Oh, goodbye fool world, I am leaving the circus
I once played an idiotic clown
Wipe this paint rid this good-for-nothin' smile
Cause a mean, jerk ring leader turned my whole world upside down

Farewell ex love, I am leaving the circus
Gotta find a way to dry your tears.
No more working with a phony smile
And I'll forget you woman if it takes a hundred years.

Yeah I was, set right up and got treated like a fool
She's got a heart with hidden mind of cruel.
C'mon everybody, loved to make them laugh
But it got hard when my heart was broken in half.

Well, no jokes to she, I am leaving the circus
Oh now someone please, will you hire me?
Print paper from a Cannon, comes out there
Still have people point at me and stare
I'll tell the world that woman, Is mean as mean could be
That mean, fickle woman made a cryin' clown outta me

Print paper from a Cannon, comes out there
Still have people point at me and stare
I'll tell the world that woman, Is mean as mean could be
That mean, fickle woman made a cryin' clown outta me
