I wandered in these big blue shoes
Till we had nothin' left to lose
Nobody wants you when you're a circus clown
I should know, I looked all over town

I guess folks just don't like my face
They make out like I'm some disgrace
But nothin's gonna change this painted frown
I know, know, I looked all over town

Maybe somewhere I could be free
Somewhere they won't throw rocks at me
Somewhere this crazy hair could be my crown
But all my life, I've looked all over town

So whistling this circus tune
I inflated one more balloon
And as I floated up, I looked straight down
And I looked all over town
One last time, I looked all over town
