The Lyrics

tied up in an old rope hoping
to free himself in time
he said "it's magic what you'll see tonight
but the secret will stay mine
they buried him in an underground
just to break free out of there
his secret never ever found
we just loved his sense of dare

hu hu hu hu
hu hu hu hu

they picked him up and lowered down
and tied and locked him in
he looked like a dying clown
as the clock kept closing in
I checked back and I read up
how he died that day
took a punching from a male fan
and never lived another day

hu hu hu hu
hu hu hu hu

there's some folks who I know have talked
of tales as he worked free
they always tried to tie him up
but he'd always get released
he came out from a sewer hole
it don't get better'n this
how can they measure up? anyone new
he was the best escape artist

hu hu hu hu
hu hu hu hu
