This Carnival Life

Copyright 2001
Dan Pelletier

Hear the barker on the midway, hit the clown between the eyes
Knock the red one from the platform, win your choice of any prize

Don’t you love this carnival life? Don’t you love this carnival life?

Slip your hand inside her jacket, in the wind at the top of the Ferris Wheel,
Kiss her cotton candy mouth, feel just how good love can feel,

Don’t you love this carnival life? Don’t you love this carnival life?

Something here for all your senses and danger lurks around every bend
But a dollar down and it’s friendly strangers, smiling faces, long lost friends

Don’t you love this carnival life? Don’t you love this carnival life?

<Instrumental Break>

Clacking metal strikes a rhythm, for the tinny music and the motor noise
Brown skinned girls in yellow dresses, muscle shirts on muscled boys
Backpacked infants sleep like babies, popcorn carpets, yellow lights
Freedom-loving red balloons sail into the summer night,
Will you ride the Cyclone Coaster? Face your fears, test your will,
Prove yourself a hundred ways, feats of strength, feats of skill,

Don’t you love this carnival life? Don’t you love this carnival life?
Don’t you love this carnival life? Don’t you love this carnival life?
Don’t you love this carnival life? Don’t you love this carnival life?
