Everybody Laugh Lyrics Meanings

Everybody Laugh Lyrics

Pity the clown with the pie in his face
Finishing last in the human race
He started slow out of the gate
And crossed the line a little bit late
He does what he's paid to do
And he does it all for you
Could you indulge him for a while
He only wants to see you smile
Everybody laugh
Could you oblige him
Everybody laugh

Someone's falling from the flying trapeze
Dying hard with the greatest of ease
No net below to stop the descent
A thrill is bought as life is spent
Death is something all clowns know
Still they go on with the show
And as the body is carried away
I can hear one of them say
Everybody laugh
What's the matter
Everybody laugh

How can the world be a giant circus
When life seems like it's bound to hurt us
Lions are loose and the crowd is fresh meat
But nobody moves 'cause they paid for their seat
The human cannon is shot to hell
Still the barkers shout to sell
Everybody laughs
Step right up!
Everybody laughs
Hurry! Hurry!
Everybody laughs
Only a dollar!

Ever look on a dollar bill
At Washington's grin
It's as if he knows something now
He didn't know then
Greed is such a cold desire
But it sets the world on fire
And as the circus tent goes up in smoke
Remember it's all been a joke
Everybody laugh
Holy smoke
Everybody laugh
I can't hear you
Everybody laugh
What's the matter
