Send In The Clowns lyrics

Isnt it rich, are we a pair?
Me here at last on the ground, you in mid air!
Send in the clowns!

Isnt it bliss, dont you approve?
One who keeps tearing around,
One who cant move!
Where are the clowns?
Send in the clowns!

Just when I stopped, opening doors
Finally knowin the one that I wanted was yours,
Making my entrance again, with my usual flair
Sure of my lines, but no one is there!

Dont you love farce?
My fault I fear!
I thought that youd want what I want
Im sorry my dear!
Quick, send in the clowns . . .
Dont bother . . . theyre here!

Isnt it rich, isnt it queer?
Losing my timing this late in my career!
Where are the clowns? theres gotta be clowns!
Maybe next year.

. . . maybe next year!
