The Lyrics

I Don't Like Clowns

Well I don't like clowns, no I don't like clowns
Oh, I think they come from the pits of Hell
And I don't like clowns

If they come around, run them out of town
And I keep those clowns from draggin' me down
Gonna smack them 'round, and I don't like clowns

(I don't like)
Hey baby! Sad clowns are creepin' me out
(I don't like)
Hey yah! Clowns so down
Are the worst around

Well they twist balloons, and they make baboons
And they twist and squeak those balloons all around
But I'll smack them down, and I don't like clowns

(I don't like)
They crazy! Mad clowns are freakin' me out
(I don't like)
Hey yah! Clowns with frowns
Are the worst around

(I don't like)
Cry baby! Teary clowns makin' me pout
(I don't like)
Hey yah! Wish they'd drown

(I don't like)
Gay maybe! Sissy clowns makin' me shout
(I don't like)
Hey yah! Hate those clowns
And I'll smack them down
No I don't like clowns
