Lyrics[edit]

Bart:
But you're a big time TV star.
Ain't the circus worse by far?
Krusty:
Oh, I used to love celebrity,
But I've got big top clarity.
Because...
Circus clowning is the life for me.
Gonna flip the bird to lousy kids' TV.
Circus folk have real camaraderie.
I can't be fired 'cause they don't test my pee.
Animals:
He'd be positive,
For every sedative.
Krusty:
Circus laughter, there's no greater high.
Crowd is fired up 'cause they might see you die.
Animals:
If he breaks his neck,
What a thrill they'll get.
Krusty:
All my problems have been solved for free.
Talking to the bear sure beats therapy.
Animals:
A hug can beat,
Fear of women's feet.
Bart:
Can I join the circus if I'm only ten?
Krusty:
Here's a fake I.D., now your name is Ben.
Bart:
Ain't no mom to keep me safe and sound.
I get to juggle swords, eat corn dogs off the ground.
Krusty:
So, good riddance to TV
I feel alive instead of live-plus-three.
All:
Because circus clowning is the life for me!.
