big top (ode to francisco) lyrics – johnny q public

johnny q public
extra ordinary
big top (ode to francisco)
(d. fritz, c. harris, j. boldridge, o. th*rnton, s. turner)

painted expressions filling the stands
are the best at twisting animal balloons
and it’s so funny watching the magician
pulling big green rabbits out of little leather pouches

under the big top there’s a tickle in my ear
it’s creepy, crawly, scary
i don’t feel fear

-chorus-
under the big top
you’ve got a home
if they can fill the seats
and pay the loan

there went a donkey and an elephant
telling everyone about what is to come
and when the birdies sing, i am reminded
not everyone who cries “lord, lord” will enter the kingdom

under the big top there’s a tickle in my ear
it’s creepy, crawly, scary
i don’t feel fear

(repeat chorus)

under the big top there’s a tickle in my ear
it’s creepy, crawly, scary
i don’t feel fear

blank expressions filling the pews
are the best at twisted animal views
and it’s so funny to watch the minister
pulling big green rabbits out of little leather purses
