(ode Running Away)
The day the circus came to town
We sat on the grass banks all around.
We saw the animals, ringmaster and clown
We had to smile when he turned round.
We looked at each other, not a frown
The day the circus came to town.
Then we saw the work they had to do
Cleaning the animals, even their poo.
They pulled up the big top two by two
They were covered in sweat, all wet through,
It was a long day they had to do.
We looked at each other up and down,
Well maybe next year, when the circus comes back to town.
