One in Every Crowd

Lyrics

The elephants walk down the street to the big show

And the clowns follow behind sweeping up

She’s a heavy set black headed white woman

Grows a beard longer than any man I know

 

Tigers roll down the street in great big cages

You can see the fear in every little kid’s eyes

But there followed by silly little faces

Big and small full of color one in every size

 

There’s one for a smile, one for frown

One to lift you up, one to bring you down

One in every crowd makes the world go round

 

Standing on a stump talking to the congregation

They’ll tell you whatever you want to hear, whatever it cost

You’ll cheer to the way the words prompt you

What you don’t know you might believe if you hear it enough

 

There’s truth and justice and sneaky little devils

They’ll beat a dead horse as long as they can ride it

Money breeds votes it takes a lot to get a low paying job

Change is an agenda on a ticket, somebody’s trying to raffle

 

There’s one for a smile, one for frown

One to lift you up, one to bring you down

One in every crowd makes the world go round

 

Life is a traveling circus everywhere you go

Bumper sticker says life’s a bitch but you know

It’s what you do between now till then to ease the ride                         

You’re a fish out of water or a thorn in somebody’s side 

 

Teach an old dog new tricks don’t mean he’ll come back

Wallace and Grommet went to the moon instead of Wisconsin

That’s putting a chicken before the egg, like a pig in the breeze

I might sound a little confused, but life is like that

 

There’s one for a smile, one for frown

One to lift you up, one to bring you down

One in every crowd makes the world go round

Go Round
