Topsy, turvey, upside down,
Shall we watch the circus clown?
Are you ready? Well, let's go!
Blow the whistle, start the show.
Come one, come all, step right up.
See the elephants strut their stuff.
Bangle tigers… monkeys too.
Acrobatics dressed in blue.
Trapeze artists flying high,
Reaching upwards to the sky.
Oh to be that child again;
Sharing laughter with a friend.
Popcorn, peanuts, cotton candy,
Ice-cold pop is fine and dandy.
Under the big top, lights shine bright.
Music playing in the night.
The show and music soon must end.
All the lights will once more dim,
Within my heart the child remains,
Waiting for release again!
