DAY THAT THE CIRCUS LEFT TOWN, THE Leigh / Thomas as rec by Eartha Kitt w Henri Rene & his Orch Jan 3rd 1955 New York I waved to the man with the golden baton And I waved through the rain falling down; And I waved till the last of the music was gone, The day that the circus left town. My heart still recalls when it seems to my mind That my heart only knows how to frown. How my heart almost broke when they left me behind, The day that the circus left town. I asked for a job doing anything, Feed the elephants, carry water, anything! But the man said they didn't have anything, And turned me away, turned me away! And away went the lions and the tigers so wild, And away went my beautiful clown; And away went my very last day as a child The day that the circus left town. I asked for a job doing anything, Feed the elephants, carry water, anything! But the man said they didn't have anything, And turned me away, turned me away! And away went the lions and the tigers so wild, And away went my beautiful clown; And away went my very last day as a child The day that the circus left town.
