You Killed the Clown
by Thompson Twins



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.
