a clown song




CLOWNS UNDERCOVER!!

You know it! You saw it! The space in the basement
They hide in the cupboard. They hide in the floor.
You know it! Confront it! The place where the face went.
They’re in there! They’re out there! Board up the door!!!

Cause once they come in here there’s no way to stop them.
They don’t listen to reason, don’t listen to rhyme.
They are knocking you over. They are pushing you under.
This time they will get you. They’ll get you this time.

You know it! You saw it! The space in the basement
Why didn’t you listen? I told you the score.
You knew it! You saw it! The place where the face went.
The clowns are all coming. Right through the door.

1-2-3-4!!

CLOWNS UNDERCOVER!!!

Cause now that they’re in here there’s no way to stop them.
They are licking your girlfriend, they are drinking your wine.
They are knocking you over. They are pushing you under.
This time they’ll outdance you. They’ll outdance you this time.

And the clown says:
Dance Motherfucker Dance
And your girlfriend says:
Dance Motherfucker Dance
And your friends all say:
Dance Motherfucker Dance

CLOWNS UNDERCOVER!!!

you're wasting your time writing plays. the world has been eagerly awaiting the return of bert bacharach for years, and alas we've found him in you. i guess noone knew the next musical genius might hail from connecticut.

there aren't enough scary songs about clowns dancing.

It's clear you should be writing musicals Adam... those lyrics are better than most of what I've heard on Broadway this season.

Adam said...

Thanks, Michael. That's very kind of you to say.

That's where the money is, in musicals. I should try and figure that out. I wonder who I know who could hook me up.

I had a friend in high school who was terrified of clowns. Terrified.
