Hollies – Harlequin lyrics

(Brooker / Reid)
Harlequin has lost his crown
Look they say a broken clown
Yesterday he ruled the world
Now he's crying to be heard
Yesterday he called the tune
Now he's howling at the moon
Harlequin has broken down
Harlequin, Harlequin has lost his crown

Harlequin has broken loose
Slipped the knot and skipped the noose
Can those bloodhounds find his trail
Will they send him back to jail
Can those bloodhounds find his scent
Will they find out where he went
Harlequin cannot be found
Harlequin, Harlequin has gone to ground


Harlequin is back on top
Now his fame will never stop
See him shown from coast to coast
He's the one they love the most
See them slap him on the back
How they love his every crack
Harlequin we knew you'd do it
Harlequin, Harlequin

Harlequin, Harlequin
Harlequin, Harlequin
Harlequin, Harlequin
Harlequin, Harlequin
