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.
