OLD LYRICS – JOIN THE CIRCUS
(P.T. Barnum)  

Chorus 1
Just join the circus like you wanted to
when you were a kid.
Climb aboard before it moves on and you'll
Thank your lucky stars you did.

Go to bed in Minneapolis,
Wake up in P.A.

Pack your roll, your brush and your comb again
ready to roam again, ready to stray.

Bless your soul, you'll make it your home.
When the circus comes your way!

Bridge
See that tent pole slowly start to rise
Circus, circus.
Just to say the word electrifies,
Circus, circus.

Chorus 2
Just join the circus like you wanted to
When you were a kid.
Climb aboard before it moves on and you'll
Thank your lucky stars you did.

Go to bed in Minneapolis,
Wake up in P.A.

Pack your roll, your brush and your comb again ready to roam again ready to stray.

Bless your soul, you'll make it your home
From the day I join the circus!
Be proud to say you'll join the circus!
Step right this way and join the circus!
Just stick a banner in your hand
And -

Join the circus like you wanted to
Like you always wanted to
join us today!

 

 

 

NEW LYRICS – LIFE’S A CIRCUS
(Levine Children’s Hosp. Opening)

Chorus 1
Oh, Life’s a circus, Life’s a carnival
When you are a kid
Celebrate the colors of life and you’ll
Thank your lucky stars you did.

Strike the band and march the elephants,
Laugh at all the clowns,

Bring the bears, the lions and tigers out,
acrobats all about, jump up and down!

Sing your cares and troubles goodbye
When the circus comes to town!

Bridge
Hear the music slowly start to rise
Circus, Circus
See the magic right before your eyes,
Circus, Circus

Chorus 2
For Life’s a circus, Life’s a carnival
When you are a kid
Celebrate the colors of life and
you’ll thank your lucky stars you did.

Strike the band and march the elephants,
Laugh at all the clowns,

Bring the bears, the lions and tigers out, acrobats all about, jump up and down!

Sing your cares and troubles goodbye
When you step into the circus!
The magic madness of the circus!
For all around you is a circus!
So wave your banner, yell for more!
For –

Life’s a circus, Life’s a carnival
Life’s a festival, for we’re
All kids today!
