Crispin Hellion Glover – Clowny Clown Clown lyrics

I was walking on the ground.
I didn't make a sound,
Then I turned around,
And I saw a clown.
Had a frown.
Stood on a mound.
Started barking like a hound.

Clowny clown clown.

When I came to what I found,
He showed me something that was brown,
So we became great friends and
Late in life, he got sick...
I gave him some soup, but he got
Worse and asked for it's purse.
It got it, but it was empty,
So it cried a plenty.
I wondered what to do.
I didn't know what to think,
So I got a drink.

And then I showed it
Something that was round,
And it died, smiled,
And fell on the ground.

Clowny clown clown

Thinking back about those days

With the clown,
I get teary-eyed and really snide.
I think that deep down,
I hated that clown,
But not as much as Mr. Farr,
I'm going to go smoke a cigar.

Clowny clown clown.

I was walking on the ground,
I didn't make a sound
And then I turned around --
I saw a clown.

Clowny Clown Clown.

I hate you clown.
Your ugly frown.
Smiley lips.
Think I'll clip you across the nose, clown.
Want a cigar?
It'll get you far haha
Like Mr. Farr... Get it?
Haha Mr. Farr?


(Coughs) See what a cigar'll do? (laughs)

Ugly Clown.
