Baby Hates Clowns Lyrics

Randy Stonehill

Oh my girl loves surprises
So I bought a pair of tickets
And we went to see the greatest show on earth
Where everybody comes to have a really good time
Underneath the big top
Oh she seemed so delighted with the lions and the tigers
And the men on the flying trapeze
Oh, but when the clowns come around
She clinches her fists
She looks as if she's catching a disease

Baby hates clowns and the tricks they do
Baby hates clowns in their great big shoes
Baby hates clowns with their polka dot clothes
Baby hates clowns with their big red nose
Now I get a little nervous every time that the circus comes to town
I don't know why baby hates clowns

Well, I gingerly suggested she was over-caffeinated
Or perhaps she had a simple case of nerves
She said as she glared at me with eyes like knives
You gotta a lot to learn, boy
So, I quick dropped the subject like a flaming hot potato
But it didn't bring her any relief
Oh and it's so hard to pretend everything is just swell
When she's muttering and grinding her teeth

Baby hates clowns with their stubby cigars
Baby hates clowns in their little toy cars
Baby hates clowns when they tumble and they flip
Baby hates clowns with their painted on lips
Now it's no exaggeration and there's not an explanation I have found
I don't know why baby hates clowns

She gets so traumatized
And I feel paralyzed
In the midst of her psycho drama
I don't know what to do
It's such a mystery
All this hostility
I tell her she should lighten up
But all she does is tighten up and come unglued
It's so unsettling
My girl loves surprises but I never realized
She was vexed with a complicated mind
And I'm not sure whether it's a colorful quirk or some flavor of dementia
How I wish I could say there was a moral to the story
Something cute about venting her angst
Oh, but let the truth be known, I'm in the twilight zone
Some guy dressed up like bozo gets the thanks

Baby hates clowns, it's truly bizarre
Baby hates clowns, just the way they are
Baby hates clowns, man it's making me nuts
Baby hates clowns, she hates their guts
Now I get a little nervous every time that the circus
I get a little nervous every time that the circus
Get a little nervous every time the circus comes to town
I don't know why baby hates clowns
