Send In The Clowns

Song Lyrics

Isn’t it rich?
Are 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
But 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?
Quick, send in the clowns
Don’t bother they’re here

Isn’t it rich?
Isn’t it queer?
Losing my timing this late
In my career?
And where are the clowns?
There ought to be clowns
Well, maybe next year…
