The Lyrics

So long before I'd know, once a royal member, stuff like music and poems made folks smile
Knowledge given through mocking chance, and acts that take much skill and dance, luckily they were happy beyond smile
But eventually knowledge shivered, now on paper name now differed
Bad news not here it crept, in my time I wept and wept
Never a member back in time, did my homework and I graded fine, but something made me feel like slime
The days I more then cried
Oh my my how knowledge was once spied to the kings t and say to he something mocking but sly
Back in those old times when things seemed better I sigh Drinkin whiskey and a little of rye, whiskey and a little of rye

Do you do what you still love? and do you believe in God above?, Cause the Bible tells you so
Now do you believe in evil blow? Can tragic grave your mortal soul?, Now you can catch me cause I dance real slow
Well there was some good time before then, if you read on I will tell you when
Wearing those pointy shoes, man I dig red yellow and blues
Then was a lonely teenage juggling luck with a pink carnation, magic wand but sucked
But I knew all had gone kurupt The days I more then cried

Oh my my how knowledge was once spied to the kings t and say to he something mocking but sly
Back in those old times when things seemed better I sigh, Drinkin whiskey and a little of rye

Now in these years the circus was known and who knows at where's a castle home? white face paint you can't put on me
Was a jester that sang out killer queen in a coat and collar red blue green Then a voice distracted him you see

Oh, it made the king start looking down This jester ran off with his crown
Why funny I've no words Still people came in herds
As I smiled read a book on marxou Continued practice in the park
But wished I could fly like a lark The days I more then cried

I was singin, my my all these colors I spy have a choker I'm a joker and more on upper thigh
This good old boy was juggling really high And singin I'm so happy out of joy cry
I'm so happy out of joy cry

Helter skelter in a time of swelter some bats flew by maybe searching shelter
Something I spy that's fallin fast Green wigs had fell on the grass
The creatures turned made a second pass looking cheerful and not flying quite so fast
Now, a smell in air like sweet perfume And then noticed the flowers in bloom
We all wanted to dance Oh, but no costume what's at glance
'Cause us actors have a costume drill The wigs went on and They felt ill
you see this change, transitive field That day revulsion rised

Then I was singin, bye bye miss my shorts pumpkin pie Had a choker I'm a joker there's no chokers now cry
My good old throws that made things go up real high They're ridden, skill knowledge and color I spied
Skill knowledge and color I spied

Oh, now where they are just out of place Way far beyond just lost in space
The circus see cant start again

So be gone jack be crippled not just sick Jack splat upon a candle stick
The fire fried him beyond his rear end

No, and as you watch them up on stage You see nothing but fists of rage
Like angles born in hell They all just laughed as well
And as the flames climbed higher up in their height The crowd enjoyed it all was right
I felt the devil had done his right The days I more then cried

He was singin, my my how foolish are fools eyes Now so happy on to crappy all the good now will die
Them bad old boys now given whisky 'n rye And wonderin, There a scarier way to die?
There a scarier way to die?

I found a girl singing some blues And I asked if she had happy news
But after she smiled just turned away

I went down to the costume store Where was bought the choker I once wore
But the man there said chokers aren't made these days And now in streets the toddlers scream
The lovers cried or they stayed in dream But I heard nothing spoken
The church bells were all broken And the three balls I require most
The yellow red and blue are all toast Should catch the last train visit coast
That day revulsion rised

Somewhere just stood alone and afraid I dropped down to my knees and I prayed
And I promised all faith, all my love to Him If only laughter were given again
And He said that it would be once more It may be hard to see once more
And in five years way beyond just mourn Don't see collars being worn

And I was singin' bye bye miss my shorts pumpkin pie had a choker I'm a joker there's no chokers now cry
no more good old throws to catch the audience eye ridden skill knowledge and color I spied
Skill knowledge and color I spied

I was sighin' Why Why dress like skeleton guys Had a choker Was a joker entertainment now fried
No good old throws to catch the audience eye Feelin' This will lead to live that all dies

Not sure what you're talking about, but this song takes an enormous amount of effort, and you tracked it well, as far as I can tell

Wildcard - February 03, 2023 - Report this comment
how jesters and our name change to jokers use to be skillful and people use to love our juggling. Now things seem a lot stupider.

Hey Wild, I dig stream of consciousness parodies, so you are in my lane of 55. Sadly, you should not put any credence into the high or low ratings anymore. Some wag hacks the voting function daily, to the point where it has no more meaning. One reason I don't contribute like I used to. :(
