The broken hearted love sick clown
Wore his smile upside down
The audience all laughed at him
Although he knew not why!
He looked upon the happy crowd
And shouted out his thoughts aloud
"I cannot take this pain much more...
And I just want to die!"
He climbed the ladder high... then higher
Put a foot upon the wire
Stumbled out and walked the tightrope
Looking down on all
The audience they stared
Upon the clown who had prepared
To stop the laughter and the heartache with his fall
