Isn't it rich?
Are we a pair?
Me here at last on the ground
You in mid-air...
Send in the clowns

Isn't it bliss?
Don't you approve?
One who keeps tearing around
One who can't move...
Where are the clowns?
Send in the clowns

Just when I'd stopped opening doors
Finally knowing the one that I wanted was yours
Making my entrance again with my usual flair
Sure of my lines
No one is there

Don't you love farce?
My fault I fear
I thought that you'd want what I want
Sorry my dear
But where are the clowns?
There ought to be clowns
Quick, send in the clowns

What a surprise!
Who could foresee
I'd come to feel about you what you felt about me?
Why only now when I see that you've drifted away?
What a surprise...
What a cliché...

Isn't it rich
Isn't it queer
Losing my timing this late in my career?
And where are the clowns?
Quick, send in the clowns
Don't bother, they're here
