"The Tiny Circus of Life" is a song by Andy Partridge. It appeared on Andy's Fuzzy Warbles Volume 6 in 2004.

QuotesEdit

Andy: “Yet another Nonsuch escapee and candidate for the ‘it's a funfair life’ concept record, along with ‘Barnum’, ‘Bumpercars’, ‘End of the Pier’ and a few others. Circus = magical, scary, boring, amazing, cruel and memorable = everyday existence. Didn't use the song at the time so I borrowed the title for a French XTC ‘Greatest Hits / Introduction to’ album. Maybe this song was also too painfully autobiographical. Hmmm? Doh! Coco.”

LyricsEdit

You should have been there

You would have laughed so hard that you'd cry I bet

Watching this poor sucker sweat over things that you'd all sail through


You should have seen me

You would have howled so hard that you'd piss yourself

See me dumped back on the shelf, all in pieces with no good glue


They've had all your money fool and they've even had your sweet wife

But you have to smile you clown

You're in the tiny circus, the tiny circus of life


Don't look so smug folks, you could be next

Hook you from your ringside seat,

make you think you'd found your feet and then pull all your world away


They've had all your money fool and they've even had your sweet wife

But you have to smile you clown

You're in the tiny circus, the tiny circus of life


All black and white, down in your contract here

and you can't wash it out with any amount of tears


They've had all your money fool and they've even had your sweet wife

But you have to smile you clown, you're in the tiny circus,

the shiney circus, the tiny circus of life
