The Lyrics

One of the symptoms of a midlife crisis is career dissatisfaction....
Hey! Hyuk-yuk!
Hey! Hyuk-yuk!

Man, I like them clown shoes
And that red nose
Yesterday I told the boss
I wanna be one of those.

A soda squirt in my ear
Drivin' tiny cars, a kick in the rear
I would choose
(It's what he likes..)
Because I like them clown shoes
(It's what he likes)

When I read The Clown News
I really wanted to sing!
Bobo tripped up, fell (he ain't well)
Now there's an ope-ning, yeah!

At rodeos, chased by steer
Getting slapped around, my kind of career
I'd amuse
(In floppy stridin' clown shoes)
Those kiddies in my clown shoes
(Them floppy stridin' clown shoes)
I'd uni-bike in clown shoes
(A uni-bikin' clown's cool!)
I'm getting psyched for clown shoes
(He's getting' psyched)

Wahhhhh! [INSTRUMENTAL BREAK]

Now I'm wearin' clown shoes
I need to find Miss Right
Baggy pants and purple hair
Surely would get me exciteed

She'd fill me with heartfelt cheer
Shoot me out of cannons, get me a beer
Be my muse
(He's gotta find his clown muse)
And love me in my clown shoes
(She'd love him in his clown shoes)
And love me in my clown shoes
(She'd shag him in his clown shoes)
And love me in my clown shoes
(His twenty-inch longclown shoes)

[WHISPERED}
Oh man, I'd like some clown shoes
(And small bike)
Oh man, I'd like some clown shoes
(uni-cyc')
Oh man, I'd like some clown shoes
(face that's white)
Oh man, I'd like some clown shoes
(Please shut up 'bout the clown shoes!)

Hey! Hyuk-yuk! HEY! HEY! HEY!

I'm tempted to go to the car, grab my clown nose and wear it for the rest of the day. Yes, I do have a clown nose in the car...doesn't everyone? This was FUN. 555

"Yesterday I told the boss I wanna be one of those" would go over well where I work! I smiled all the way through this one, KR :-) 555

ha! I was thinking as I was reading thru it, gee clown shoes are just inherently funny, and the more you mentioned them the funnier they sounded, then that last "shut up" line just took the funny to a whole new level - big LOLs - big size 555s for you
