CROSBY TYLER: Music

GOOD OL' CIRCUS DAYS(from the album LECTRIC PRAYER)

(Crosby Tyler)

Fell in love with a midget named Clare,
Had two kids Cherry and Blair,
Traveled the world with Barnum and Bailey
Shared a train with the bearded lady,
Two headed twins and the tattooed man
Fire-eating Fred and Rubberband Sam,

Them Good Ol' Circus Days
Them Good Ol' Circus Days..........

I was 17 had big top dreams,
Thought I'd be the next Frosty Little,
I couldn't see in '63
What circus life would whittle for me,
I just went where every clown goes,
Put on your make-up and plastic nose,
Be silly, sail balloons,
Hardy har har, and a zoom boom boom

Them Good Ol' Circus Days
Them Good Ol' Circus Days

Who knew in '82,
The only thing I owned were giant shoes,
That I owned for 19 years,
Too kick beach balls in the back of Sears,
Even them had too many holes,
Turned my soles to crisp charcoal,

Them Good 'Ol Circus Days
Them Good 'Ol Circus Days

Now, I sleep in an alleyway,
Where a trapeze begins to sway,
The ringmaster signals me on,
And I bow to the crowd
And fall to the ground..........

Them Good 'Ol Circus Days
