Open the Windows and See all the Clowns

Open the window, see all the clowns
laughing and dancing, prancing around
Mama, there must be a circus in town
open the window, see all the clowns.

Open the window and see all the clowns
down the street singing, they come with a bound
Mama, there must be a circus in town
open the window, see all the clowns.

Oh, the big balloons
all the dappled plumes
the old calliope sings to me
'come out of your lonely room'.

Open the window, see all the clowns
laughing and dancing and prancing around.

I run to the window to see
the clowns are all laughing with me
how happy we all were till love came to town
open the window, see all the clowns.
