Sally and the Circus

lyrics

I’ve been reeling about this new plan you’ve made
You’ve been feeling trapped by the path we’ve laid 

So now you’re heading off alone
I know it’s been a long hard climb,
I’ve been a touchy beast at times
But Sally, please don’t run away to join the circus -
why must we all fall down when the Big Top comes to town?

Sally, please don’t run away to join the circus -
I know you must be free, but where the hell does that leave me?
We’ve been slaving all our grown lives for this time,
scrimping and saving and keeping the kids in line 

And now they’ve spread their wings and flown…
With family duties off our hands, we’re free at last!
So I don’t understand… 

Sally, why must you run away to join the circus?
Why should our swansong sound when they send in the clowns?

Sally, please don’t run away to join the circus -
I know you must be free, but where the hell does that leave me?
I have always seen me as a part of us, husband and his wife
Now I’m facing a reduced existence as just a sideshow,
sad old sideshow in your life
Sally, please don’t run away to join the circus…
And we could start a whole new song, if you’d let me tag along
