Frank Sinatra – Send In The Clowns lyrics
[Spoken intro]
This is a song about a couple of adult people who have spent, oh, quite a long time
Together, till one day
One of 'em gets restless and decides to leave. Whether it's the man or woman who left is unimportant.
It's a breakup.
It's a lovely marriage of words and music, written by Stephen Sondheim.

Isn't it rich? Are we a pair?
Me here at last on the ground and you in mid-air
Send in the clowns

Isn't it bliss? Don't you approve?
One who keeps tearing around and one who can't move
But where are the clowns? Send in the clowns

Just when I stopped opening doors
Finally finding the one that I wanted was yours
Making my entrance again with my usual flair

Sure of my lines
Nobody's there

Don't you love a farce? My fault, I fear
I thought that you'd want what I want, sorry my dear
But where are the clowns? Send in the clowns
Don't bother they're here

Isn't it rich? Isn't it queer?
Losing my timing this late in my career
But where are the clowns? Send in the clowns
Well, maybe next year

    I heard it and thought about a relationship. The one me and my brother no longer have because he has passed, and I am the one asking to send in the clowns because once the clowns show in my eyes the cruel joke of my brothers passing would be over and he would be here again. But the clowns didn't come, maybe they'll come when his anniversary passes next year.
