Can't start a fire,

Can't start a fire without a spark,

This gun's for hire,

Even if we're just dancing in the dark

Oh lift him up and carry him along
Fire Marengo, fire away
Sit him down where he belongs
Fire Marengo, fire away

If I hadn't seen such riches
I could live with being poor

Oh sit down

Sit down next to me

Oh sit down

Sit down next to me

If I ventured in the slipstream
Between the viaducts of your dream
Where immobile steel rims crack
And the ditch in the back roads stop
Could you find me?
Would you kiss-a my eyes?
To lay me down
In silence easy
To be born again

I have climbed highest mountains

I have run through the fields 

Only to be with you

Only to be with you

But I still haven't found what i'm looking for

I'd relate my thoughts to you
But I'm not so stupid to put my faith in you
I'll just keep searching
Lord have mercy on me
Keep me away from Leeds

 There must be somewhere out of here

 Said the joker to the thief

 Too much confusion

 I can't get no relief.

Now it's hard to get serious when the joker is laughing
And by now the joker is wild
It's hard to keep laughing when a rich man's reflection
Looks like a gun that's gonna smile

Clowns to the left of me

Jokers to the right

 Here I am stuck in the middle with you.

Isn't it rich?
Isn't it queer?
Losing my timing this late
In my career?
And where are the clowns?
There ought to be clowns
Well, maybe next year...

Goodbye cruel world.

I'm off to join the circus,

Gonna be a broken hearted clown.

My makeup is dry and it cracks round my chin
I'm drowning my sorrows in whiskey and gin
The lion-tamer's whip doesn't crack anymore
The lions they won't fight and the tigers won't roar


So let's all drink to the death of a clown
Won't someone help me to break up this crown?

Now they're some sad things known to man

But ain't too much sadder than

The tears of a clown when there's no one around.
