เนื้อเพลง lou rawls – send in the clowns


isn’t it rich,
aren’t we a pair
me here at last on the ground,
you in mid-air
send in the clowns
isn’t it bliss,
don’t you approve
one who keeps tearing around,
one who can’t move
where are the clowns?
send in the clowns

just when i stopped opening doors
finally knowing the one that i wanted was yours
making my entrance again with my usual flair
sure of my lines – no one is there

don’t you love farce,
my fault i fear
i thought that you’d want what i want,
sorry my dear
but where are the clowns
there ought to be clowns
quick send in the clowns

what a surprise,
who could foresee?
i’ve come to feel about you what you felt about me
why only now when i see that you’ve drifted away
what a surprise, what a cliché

isn’t it rich, isn’t it queer
losing my timing this late in my career
and where are the clowns
quick send in the clowns
don’t bother they’re here.
