The actors and jesters are here
The stage is in darkness and clear
For raising the curtain
And no one's quite certain whose play it is

How long ago, how long, if only we had listened then
If we'd known just how right we were going to be
For we dreamed a lot and we schemed a lot
And we tried to sing of love before the stage fell apart

If everyone was listening you know
There'd be a chance that we could save the show
Who'll be the last clown to bring the house down?
Oh no, please no, don't let the curtain fall

Well, what is your costume today?
And who are the props in your play?
You're acting a part which you thought from the start
Was an honest one

Well, how do you plead? An actor indeed
Go re-learn your lines
You don't know what you've done
The finale's begun

If everyone was listening you know
There'd be a chance that we could save the show
Who'll be the last clown to bring the house down?
Oh no, please no, don't let the curtain fall
