The Lyrics

You got me runnin' to a "psycho circus"
You got me into "supremacy crisis"
Don't be a clown,no no no no no
I'll tell you once more before I settle the score
Don't be a clown

You need to stay out of my worthless friends
You really made a scene now and then
Don't be a clown,no no no no no
I'm getting upset and you became a threat
Don't be a clown

Don't be a clown,no
Don't be a clown,no
Don't be a clown,no
Don't be a clown

What happened to your unique attitude
That was somewhat fair,being not so rude
Don't be a clown,no no no no no
You are very shy,you're throwing custard pies
Don't be a clown

And every day ends with a crazy night
Because you're doing things that aren't right
Don't be a clown,no no no no no
I'm being ashamed because you're very lame
Don't be a clown

Don't be a clown,no
Don't be a clown,no
Don't be a clown,no
Don't be a clown

You're wreaking havoc like no one else
Your mass destruction's done by yourself
Don't be a clown,no no no no no
I'll call up the cops and they'll tell you to stop
Don't be a clown

You tried to run away from someone
That you think she is such a bum
Don't be a clown,no no no no no
You're throwing a fit with your ego trip
Don't be a clown

TSB: IMHO, this is probably the best thing you've written. You're really improving. 555

I second that...and it is a very good parody of one of ELO's biggest hits of the 70s. So I must give it a perfect score of 5,5,5 as well!

Great job on the parody, TSB! More than a year ago, I wrote a parody of this song called "Don't Bring Me Sows." I believe that parody is as funny as this one! :)
