I"ll tell friend the story of Cloony the ClownWho worked in a circus the came through town.His shoes to be too large and his cap was also small,But he just wasn"t, simply wasn"t funny at all.He had actually a trombone come play loud silly tunes,He had actually a eco-friendly dog and also a thousand balloons.He was floppy and also sloppy and also skinny and tall,But he just wasn"t, simply wasn"t funny in ~ all.And every time the did a trick,Everyone feeling a little sick.And every time he told a joke,Folks sighed as if your hearts to be broke.And every time he lost a shoe,Everyone looked awfully blue.And every time the stood top top his head,Everyone screamed, "Go back to bed!"And every time he made a leap,Everybody fell asleep.And every time the ate his tie,Everyone began to cry.And Cloony might not make any kind of moneySimply since he was no funny.One work he said, "I"ll call this townHow that feels to it is in an unfunny clown."And the told them every why the looked therefore sad,And that told them all why he felt for this reason bad.He called of Pain and also Rain and Cold,He told of Darkness in his soul,And after he perfect his story of woe,Did everyone cry? five no, no, no,They laughed until they shook the treesWith "Hah-Hah-Hahs" and "Hee-Hee-Hees."They laughed through howls and also yowls and shrieks,They laughed every day, they laughed every week,They laughed until they had actually a fit,They laughed until their jackets split.The laughter spread out for miles aroundTo every city, every town,Over mountains, "cross the sea,From Saint Tropez come Mun san Nee.And shortly the whole world rang v laughter,Lasting it spins forever after,While Cloony was standing in the circus tent,With his head drooped low and his shoulders bent.And that said,"THAT IS no WHAT I supposed -I"M FUNNY just BY ACCIDENT."And while the world laughed outside.Cloony the Clown sat down and cried.
