hurtin’ song

13/12/2005

this post in in no way a reflecion of my current state of mind. i’m feeling quite wonderfully peachy at the mo’. life in love is good. i’m just inspired by a recent Babble thread & determined to spread a little “Meat Purveyors” gospel. couldn’t google the lyrics to my all time fave heartbreak song – so i figured i’d transcribe ’em myself and post them for all to see. yeah, all 2 of you.


Circus Clown by The Meat Purveyors
from the album “All Relationships are Doomed to Fail”

I kept the plates spinning as long as i could
things just got worse and they never got good
as my whole world started to crack
i heard someone laughing behind my back

do i look like a circus clown to you?
does this look like a painted on frown to you?
yer so amused
i just feel misused
do i look like a clown to you?

take a tumble, take a fall take a kick in the pants
people shoot at my feet and tell me to dance
as i stand in the big ring disgraced
i see you in the crowd with a smile on your face

do i look like a circus clown to you?
does this look like a painted on frown to you?
yer so amused
i just feel misused
do i look like a clown to you?

step right up, come on in, get your money’s worth
it’s the greatest, oldest show on earth
sit up front for the very best view
as a man saws a woman’s heart in two

do i look like a circus clown to you?
does this look like a painted on frown to you?
yer so amused
i just feel misused
do i look like a clown to you?
