Three Ring Circus
Blue Magic
(Bobby Eli/Vinny Barrett)

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls
Children of all ages
Welcome to the big top
See the ferocious lions
Thrill to the fabulous monkeys
Laugh along with the hilarious clowns
See them, life is a three ring circus

The whistle blows as he makes his rounds
Hes seen every town west of Mississippi
Hes just a face painted all in smiles
Jumpin?up and down and makin?people happy

Though deep inside a shadow grows
He could laugh and no one knows
Theres a lonely man inside

Life is a three ring circus
All of the ups and downs of a carousel
That I know so well
Life is a three ring circus
Just one little ride on a merry-go-round
Goin?round and round and round and round and round

He does the best like the minstrel did
Just to please the kids and keep the people laughing
But no one knows that beneath the clothes
And his turned up nose lies a lonely beggar

He needs the love he spreads around
Bu tin life hes just a clown
Till they bring the curtain down

Life is a three ring circus
All of the ups and downs of a carousel
That I know so well
Life is a three ring circus
Just one little ride on a merry-go-round
Goin?round and round and round and round and round

He needs the love that cant be found
But youre just too blind to see
That the clown is really needy

Life is a three ring circus
All of the ups and downs of a carousel
That I know so well
Life is a three ring circus
Just one little ride on a merry-go-round
Goin?round and round and round and round and round

Goin?round and round and round and round and round
Goin?round and round and round and round and round
Goin?round and round and round and round and round
Goin?round and round and round and round and round

Goin?round and round and round and round and round
Goin?round and round and round and round and round
