Funny Man   It was a joke at the right time, brought the house down It was a laugh at the wrong time, took the clown down   On his stage, at this stage, he's the funniest man they've seen Look at him off the stage, he's the funniest thing you've seen   With an audience of thousands, the clumsy clown is just an act Before just two or three of you, the clumsy clown is more of fact   The star of his own show, you won't believe the queue The paint comes off, the laughter dies, he doesn't see his cue   He'll trip, he'll fall into the wall, it doesn't look much fun Took one more laugh behind his back to say “this show is done!”   Though this silly showman has left the theatre now He will pause for your applause, and still he'll take a bow
