The Return of the Worlds Fifth Greatest Show


Step right up, ladies and gents, gather around
For The Greatest Show on Earth happens to be in town
However, since those guys are sold out, you may as well
See our show instead.. I mean, what the hell..

Watch our tightrope walker, who is afraid of heights
So we get the fool rip roaring drunk on Tuesday nights
He doesn't sober up until the weekend is past
When he wakes up to discover something new in a cast..

Like music? our fat lady sings karaoke (her name is Chuck)
She sounds like a cross between Madonna and Donald Duck
Rush over to the gift counter where her cd is for sale
(And if you smell something funny.. trust me, don't inhale)

In the main tent, where the circus lions are kept
You will find most of our clowns, who are pretty inept
at training lions but I have to say they have spunk
(Of course, it helps that we get them good and drunk)

You should see them ride on the lions, flirting with death
Even the Angels in Heaven wind up holding their breath
But our clowns show no fear, because they know just in case
Something should happen, clowns are easy to replace..

So get off that treadmill, stop riding that bike
Forget your diet, who cares what you look like!
Buy yourself a ticket, adjust your priorities
And most importantly.. DO NOT TELL THE AUTHORITIES!!

There is more to this than meets the eye, I think people often go to shows like this just in case there is a tragedy. To see a clown eaten by a lion would make their day, to see the high wire performer plunge to their death would be the icing on the cake. Great work my friend.
