Clowntown Anthem

By Captain Z

Sing as Petula Clark's Downtown

 

When you're fed up and life is making you crazy
                                 You can always go - clowntown
When you've got worries, all the pricks and the hurry
                                 Seems to help, I know - clowntown
Just listen to the music of the circus in the city
Linger on the website where the neon signs are cheesy
                             How can you lose?
                                 The clowns are much older there
                                 You can forget all your troubles,
                                 forget all your cares
                                 So go clowntown, things'll be "doh" when you're
                                 Clowntown - no finer ho, for sure
                                 Clowntown -

everything's waiting for you

Don't hang around and let your problems surround you
                                 There are movie shows - clowntown
Maybe you know some little places to go to
                                 Where they never close - clowntown
Just listen to the rhythm of a gentle John Travolta
You'll be dancing with him too before the night is over
                                 Happy again

                                 The clowns are much cheesier there
                                 You can forget all your troubles,
forget all your cares
                                 So go clowntown, where all the fights
are right
                                 Clowntown - waiting for you tonight
                                 Clowntown - you're gonna be all right
now

                                 ------ instrumental break ------

                                 And you may find some clown kind to
help and understand you
                                 Someone who is just warped like you and
needs a gentle hand to
                                 Guide them along

                                 So maybe I'll see you there
                                 We can forget all our troubles, forget
all our cares
                                 So go clowntown, things'll be great
when you're
                                 Clowntown - don't wait a minute for
                                 Clowntown - everything's waiting for
you

                                 Clowntown, clowntown, clowntown,
clowntown
