Dear Madam Barnum Lyrics

I put on a fake smile
And start the evening show
The public is laughing
I guess by now they know

So climb from your high horse
And pull this freak show down
Dear Madam Barnum
I resign as clown

You said I was the master
Of all I surveyed
But now I'm sweeping up
The last in line in your circus parade

Children are clapping
As I fall to the floor
My heart's torn and broken
And they just scream for more

If I'm not the sole fool
Who pulls his trousers down
Then dear Madam Barnum
I resign as clown

You tread the high wire
Between truth and lies
Your safety net just walked out
Much to your surprise

Strike up the band love
And let the show begin
For this is the last time
I'm painting on a grin

If I'm not the sole fool
Who pulls his trousers down
Then dear Madam Barnum
I resign as clown
I resign as clown
I resign as clown
