You can walk on the water
Drown in the sand
You can fly off a mountaintop
If anybody can

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

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

Life is a carnival
Believe it or not
Life is a carnival
Two bits a shot

Saw a man with the jinx
In the third degree
From trying to deal with people
People, you can't see

Take away, take away
(Take away, take away)
This house of mirrors
Give away, give away
(Give away, give away)
All the souvenirs

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

Life is a carnival
It's in the book
Life is a carnival
Take another look

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

Life is a carnival
Believe it or not
Life is a carnival
Two bits a shot
