Freedom Street Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls
Children of all ages
Welcome to the big top
See the ferocious lions
Thrill to the fabulous monkeys
Laugh along with the hilarious clowns
See them, life is a three ring circus
Verse 2
The whistle blows as he makes his rounds
He's seen every town west of Mississippi
He's just a face painted all in smiles
Jumpin' up and down and makin' people happy
Verse 3
Though deep inside a shadow grows
He could laugh and no one knows
There's a lonely man inside
Verse 4
[Chorus:]
Life is a three ring circus
All of the ups and downs of a carousel
That I know so well
Life is a three ring circus
Just one little ride on a merry-go-round
Goin' 'round and 'round and 'round and 'round and 'round
Verse 5
He does the best like the minstrel did
Just to please the kids and keep the people laughing
But no one knows that beneath the clothes
And his turned up nose lies a lonely beggar
Verse 6
He needs the love he spreads around
Bu tin life he's just a clown
Till they bring the curtain down
Verse 7
[Chorus]
Verse 8
He needs the love that can't be found
But you're just too blind to see
That the clown is really needy
Verse 9
[Chorus]
Verse 10
Goin' 'round and 'round and 'round and 'round and 'round [Repeat x 6]
