When the Circus Comes to Town

The kids will sure come running
from every part of town,
with laughs and shouts aplenty
when the circus comes to town.
A brass band marches up the street, 
the calliope will sound,
everyone will hear it
when the circus comes to town.
Lots of elephants and lions
with acrobats and clowns,
loads of fun for everyone
when then circus comes to town.

Large bales of cotton candy
and peanuts by the pound,
corn dogs on a wooden stick
when the circus comes to town.

“Oh Mama, is it bed-time yet?
Please turn my covers down.
I want to wake up early
when the circus comes to town.”
