August Rigo – Greatest Show On Earth lyrics

(Intro)
Was the greatest show on earth

(Verse)
You smarted the show, much smoother than most
Should’ve known that you’d have tricks up your sleeve yea
I watched it unfold, right under my nose
Pulled the wool over my eyes so quickly
I didn’t see it coming

(Bridge)
One minute you was all on me
Then the next you couldn’t be found
Thought I had you in lock and key
But when the curtain hit the ground you was gone, gone, gone
Had me sittin here just wonderin what the hell I did wrong oh

(Chorus 1)
‘Cause just like that, poof, abracadabra
You wasn’t there, disappeared in thin air, thin air
And just like that, poof, I couldn’t have ya
It wasn’t worth it and it couldn’t work
Twas the greatest on earth

(Chorus 2)
It was, you fooled me
Twas the greatest on earth
It was, said you fooled me
‘Cause I bought into the show
How was I supposed to know?
I was just a character
In the greatest show on earth

(Verse)
How can I be so blind?
I saw all the signs
But I wanted so much just to be wrong (just to be wrong)
I was fooled by the look, oldest trick in the book
And I blinked and suddenly you was gone
I never saw it coming

(Bridge)
One minute you was all on me
Then the next you couldn’t be found
Thought I had you in lock and key
But when the curtain hit the ground you was gone, gone, gone
Had me sittin here just wonderin what the hell I did wrong oh

(Chorus 1)
‘Cause just like that, poof, abracadabra
You wasn’t there, disappeared in thin air, thin air
And just like that, poof, I couldn’t have ya
It wasn’t worth it and it couldn’t work
Twas the greatest on earth

(Verse)
Oh oh, it was classic, boy I have to give you that (have to give you that)
Was simple magic, ribbon out the hat
See you must’ve had a trapdoor set bellow
‘Cause I was like ready to go

(Chorus 1)
‘Cause just like that, poof, abracadabra
You wasn’t there, disappeared in thin air, thin air
And just like that, poof, I couldn’t have ya
It wasn’t worth it and it couldn’t work
Twas the greatest on earth

(Chorus 2)
It was, you fooled me
Twas the greatest on earth
It was, said you fooled me
‘Cause I bought into the show
How was I supposed to know?
I was just a character
In the greatest show on earth

(Outro)
Yea, it was the greatest show on earth,
It was
It was the greatest show on earth
