Will Hoge – Oh Mr. Barnum lyrics
[Verse 1]
You told us all that this would the biggest show that we had ever seen
You said it would be huge, the greatest of all time
That everybody here could have everything that they'd ever dreamed
But now the crowd is getting restless thinkin' that you lied

[Chorus 1]
And the ringmaster is gone
It's just a clown down here all alone
Oh Mr. Barnum, won't you please take your circus back home

[Verse 2]
It seems your big top tent ain't large as you said that it would be
And all the things you said that we'd see inside are gone
No strongman, no dancing bears, nobody swinging on trapeze
It's just one bearded lady down here to tell us nothing's wrong

[Chorus 1]
The ringmaster is gone
It's just a clown down here all alone
Oh Mr. Barnum, won't you please take your circus back home

[Chorus 2]
It's your pride leading us to a fall
And you just act like it don't matter at all
Oh Mr. Barnum, won't you please take your circus back home


[Instrumental]

[Chorus 1]
The ringmaster is gone
It's just a clown down here all alone
Oh Mr. Barnum, won't you please take your circus back home

[Chorus 3]
We wanted to believe you but now
We just want you to get out of town
Oh Mr. Barnum, won't you please take your circus
Oh Mr. Barnum, won't you please take your circus
Oh Mr. Barnum, won't you please take your circus back home
