Little man with his eyes on fire and his smile so bright
In his hands are the toys you gave to fill his heart with delight
And in the ring stands a circus clown holding up a knife
What you see and what you will hear will last you for the rest of your life

And it's sad, so sad, there ain't no easy way 'round
And it's sad, so sad, all you friends gather 'round
'Cause the circus left town

Little man with his heart so pure and his love so fine
Stick with me and I'll ride with you till the end of the line
Hold my hand and I'll walk with you through the darkest night
When I smile I'll be thinkin' of you and every little thing will be all right

And it's sad, so sad, there ain't no easy way 'round
And it's sad, so sad, all you friends gather 'round
'Cause the circus left town

And it's sad, so sad, there ain't no easy way 'round
And it's sad, so sad, all you friends gather 'round
'Cause the circus left town

Circus left town, left town
Circus left town, left town
