Recollections of the circus from when I was a kid. (And, yes, my memory does extend that far back.)
This is a circus and this is a clown,
The trapeze is up but the tigers are down.
Here is the ringmaster strutting his stuff,
There stands the strong man (geeze, he looks tough).
Up in the bleachers the kids are all laughing,
But those who ate hot dogs are out the back, barfing.
