ramblings and things
I’m the man who played the trumpet
At the Circus elephants’ dance
Fell in love wth the lion tamer
But I didnt stand s chance
For she loved the white faced clown
In a purely platonic way
For he made no secret of the fact
He was one hundred percent gay.
The Ring Master controlled it all
As he played Bassoon in his van
Afectionatey he was christened
The oompah oompah man.
When you’re unhappy in the circus
What on earth can you do
Where can a Big Top trumpeter
Find a place to Run away to.
So I play trumpet for the elephants
In their pen by the Big Top;
I still love the Lion Tame
And I don’t know how to stop.
