Sleeping with Clowns

By Christopher Smith

Shes not home in the evening,
I know where she goes
She's Cruising the big top,
dolled up in up in her baggy clothes
She plasters on makeup, sips pink lemonade
as she shamelessly flirts, with the whole damn parade

By their lily white hands, she takes them to bed
she ruffles their ruffles,
and kisses their bald shiny heads
they drop their suspenders,
quick as counting to three
she's sleeping with clowns,
and she won't sleep with me

So paint me one big frown
I'm sleeping alone
she's sleeping with clowns

I've done everything, that a man should not do
Put on the red nose, laced up the gigantic shoes
she tells me she's sorry, she likes me ok
says I'm not unattractive, just not funny that way

When she lets her orange hair down,
it's never for me
It's always for clowns

She's done Binky and Blinky, and Cupcake and Pickels
in a red fire engine, with Dinky and Dimples
She's hooked up with Buttercup, Jingles and Jiffy
Wavy Gravy 10 times cause she's stuck in the 60s

So I packed up my trunk, I ain't sticking around
Gave my wigs to the Goodwill,
shipped my weeny dog off to the pound
Farewell old jalopy, I'm through driving you
now that all my dreams have backfired too
Cause I'm done doing this circus town
She's not doing me, she only does clowns
it kills me to see she's sleeping with clowns
