lyrics

"The Night I Killed Bubbles The Clown"

In the distance I could still see the carnival lights
The sky was black, the moon was green
It was me and a shovel and a friend of mine
And a can of gasoline

I had to tell someone so I told Gary the Geek
But he told the Dog Boy, who always had a bone to pick with me
And when it got to Big Hilda
Hell, you shoulda heard that fat lady sing

I brought the whole circus down
The night I killed Bubbles the Clown

Ringmaster Charlie was headed for the border that day
But they caught him south of Austin, hauled him in and put him in chains
Now he's drivin' them rail spikes
I hear he still curses my name

I brought the whole circus down
I brought the whole circus down
I brought the whole circus down
The night I killed Bubbles the Clown

Now The Pinhead's in the pin
The Flyini Frenchman's in the ground
Hung himself from the trapeze when the law come sniffin' round
They found the trailer in the woods
But not a shred of the remains
Just the walls all covered in blood
And grease paint

I saw the prosecutor droolin' just describin' the scene
That whole court went kangaroo
And nobody got away clean
Nobody but me

And I don't expect you to ever understand
So I'll take the truth to my grave
But under the makeup he was a different man
And I think it's better this way

I brought the whole circus down
I brought the whole circus down
I brought the whole circus down
The night I killed Bubbles the Clown
