Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
You can walk on the water
Drown in the sand
You can fly off a mountaintop
If anybody can
Verse 2
Run away, run away
(Run away, run away)
It's the restless age
Look away, look away
(Look away, look away)
You can turn the page
Verse 3
Hey, buddy, would you like to buy a watch
Real cheap? Here on the street
I got six on each arm
And two more round my feet
Verse 4
Life is a carnival
Believe it or not
Life is a carnival
Two bits a shot
Verse 5
Saw a man with the jinx
In the third degree
From trying to deal with people
People, you can't see
Verse 6
Take away, take away
(Take away, take away)
This house of mirrors
Give away, give away
(Give away, give away)
All the souvenirs
Verse 7
We're all in the same boat ready to float
Off the edge of the world, the flat old world
The street is a sideshow
From the peddler to the corner girl
Verse 8
Life is a carnival
It's in the book
Life is a carnival
Take another look
Verse 9
Hey, buddy, would you like to buy a watch
Real cheap? Here on the street
I got six on each arm
And two more round my feet
Verse 10
Life is a carnival
Believe it or not
Life is a carnival
Two bits a shot
