How y'all feelin' tonight?
I don't give a damn.

Mama, I leavin' way from home,
To join the circus.
And, Papa, I'm going to that place
Where the clowns get down.
Sister, I know that there are lions,
Tigers, and Bears.
(I'll be safe fo' sure, call you when I get there!)

Ain't nothin like the
Greatest Show On Earth.
What you want? What you need?
Wanna drank, wanna cheat?
I got it, I got it.

Mama, I'm movin up to (??) and cotton candy
And Papa,next week they'll let me sit
On the trapeez.
Uncle, you should see all these dancing girls, and every night I get to sleep under the big top.
