C              Em          C
I woke up this morning and prayed to the gypsy rose lee
C     b        Am          F             C
"Gypsy can you help me I'm struggling you see."
C           Em       F                C
I heard her laughing over by the slot machine
           C     b     Am      F       G         C
She said, "Baby, baby, baby, I had the strangest dream."

                        C       F
Having breakfast at the circus
                       C       F
With the lions and the clowns
            C       F             C       F
Everybody's laughing just hanging around
                   Am      F                     Am   F
But nobody's gonna love you unless you help tear down
                 F     G                       C
Breakfast at the circus with the lions and the clowns

People walking a tightrope
Head in the lion's jaws
They need a little mercy
So come on Santa Claus
And when you give your mercy
Won't you save a drop for us
We'll remember you, and your family too when they get us on the bus


Am                         Em        F
My ears are ringing and my mind is a mess
Give me one goodnight kiss
   Em         C       G
To help me forget the past

Woo! What a party
Everyone was there
Great to see you where've you been?
Hey who does your hair?
Free balloons and hats and soon the seal will catch a ball
And after that the acrobat will try to top the show
