Sweeping the floors, open up the doors yeah
Turn on the lights, get ready for the night
Nobody's romancing cause it's too early for dancing
But here comes the music

Bright lights flashing to cover up you
Like so many people, so many problems
So many reasons to buy another round
Drink it down, just another night on the town

With the big man, money man, better than the other man
He got the plan with the million dollar give a damn
When nobody understand, he'll become a smaller man
The bright lights keep flashing and the women keep dancing

With the clowns yeah, yeah, yeah
Pick me up when I'm down yeah, yeah, yeah
Rodeo clowns yeah, yeah, yeah
They pick me up when I'm down yeah, yeah, yeah

The disco ball's spinning, all the music and the women
And the shots of tequila, man they'll say that they need ya
What they really need, is just a little room to breathe

A teeny-bopping disco queen she barely understands
Her dreams are belly-button rings and other kinds of things
Symbolic of change but the thing that is strange
Is the change has occurred

And now she's just a part of the herd yeah, yeah, yeah
Man I thought you had heard yeah, yeah, yeah
The change has occurred yeah, yeah, yeah
You're just a part of the herd yeah, yeah, yeah

Lights out shut down, late night, wet ground
You walk by, look at him but he can't look at you yeah
You might feel pity but he only feels the ground
Because you understand moods but he only knows let down

By the corner there's another one
Reaching out a hand coming from a broken man well
You try to live but he's done tryin', not dead but definitely dying
With the rest of the clowns yeah, yeah

The rest of the clowns yeah, yeah
With the clowns yeah, yeah, yeah
Pick me up when I'm down yeah, yeah, yeah
Rodeo clowns yeah, yeah, yeah

They pick me up when I'm down yeah, yeah, yeah
Sweeping the floors, open up the doors yeah
Turn on the lights, get ready for the night
Nobody's romancing 'cause it's too early for dancing
But here comes the music
