ha ha said the clown lyrics – yardbirds

“ha ha”, said the clown
has the king lost his crown?
is the knight being tight on romance?
“ha ha”, said the clown
is it bringing you down
that you’ve lost your chance?

feeling low, gotta go
see a show in town
hear the jokes, have a smoke
and a laugh at the clown
in a whirl, see a girl
with a smile in her eyes
never thought i’d be brought
right down by her lies

in a trance, watch her dance
to the beat of the drums
faster now, sweating brow
i’m all fingers and thumbs
wonder why i hit the sky
when she blows me a kiss
in a while run a mile
i’m regretting all this

“ha ha”, said the clown
has the king lost his crown?
is the knight being tight on romance?
“ha ha”, said the clown
is it bringing you down
that you’ve lost your chance?

time to go, close the show
wave the people goodbye
grab my coat, grab my hat
look that girl in the eye
where’s your home?
what’s your phone number?
stop fooling ’round
could have died she replied
“i’m the wife of the clown”

“ha ha”, said the clown
has the king lost his crown?
is the knight being tight on romance?
“ha ha”, said the clown
is it bringing you down
that you’ve lost your chance?

“ha ha”, said the clown
has the king lost his crown?
is the knight being tight on romance?
“ha ha”, said the clown
is it bringing you down
