But the people have gone, his identity gone. Clown peeps through he window of his caravan.
From the trees on the common The town looks so small.
Clown puts on his coat and goes out the door. And the distant neon lights
They shine above the town. "It's almost like a circus", thinks clown.
Then half with fear And half with delight, Shivering, shaking.
Clown stands laughing, Clown stands laughing, Clown is laughing at the night.
