I ain't gonna get dressed up, just to be your clown
Ain't gonna paint this pretty face, like you paint the town
I ain't wastin' good mascara, just to watch it runnin' down
I ain't gonna get dressed up, just to be your clown

I could spend an hour on my makeup and my hair
Shoes to tall, dress to small, and lacy underwear
Go down to the bar, and buy myself a drink
Dang they're all perfect, like a puppet on a string

I ain't gonna get dressed up, just to be your clown
Ain't gonna paint this pretty face, like you paint the town
I ain't wastin good mascara, just to watch it runnin' down
I ain't gonna get dressed up, just to be your clown

You got girls that sing and dance, I hear ones an acrobat,
You got 'em swinging from the chandelier, well honey I don't swing like that
The main attraction's leaving, let the side show pay the rent
Take this diamond back and you'll be two rings shy of the big top tent

I ain't gonna get dressed up, just to be your clown
Ain't gonna paint this pretty face, like you paint the town
I ain't wastin' good mascara, just to watch it runnin' down
I ain't gonna get dressed up, just to be your clown

I ain't gonna get dressed up, just to be your clown
Tiptoe 'cross the type-rope, till you turn me upside down
cut the cable, pull the net, just to let me hit the ground
I ain't gonna get dressed up, just to be your clown
