You Killed the Clown
Draped in silk gown She danced around She filled this place with her smile She was the queen Of an Amazon dream She made us feel for a while (chorus) Was it from spite Or just sheer delight You stooped so low I want to know WHY YOU KILLED THE CLOWN (YEAH) YOU SHOT HER DOWN I watch you try Try to make that girl cry So you could be king for just one day And you said that her smile Was no more than a lie Just because she had something, something to say (REPEAT CHORUS) Yeah, you, you killed the clown You laughed as she drowned And it was the only time I ever saw you smile Oh Precious and few Were the clowns we all knew Yeah they made us feel for a while (REPEAT CHORUS) Yeah, you shot her down.
