sweeping the floors, open up the doors yeh
turn on the lights, getting ready for tonight
nobodys romancing cause its too early for dancing
but here comes the music

bright lights flashing to cover up your lack of soul
many people, so many problems, so many reasons
to buy another round, drink it down
just another night on the town
with the big man, money man, better than the other man
he got the plan with the million dollar give a damn
when nobody understands hell become a smaller man
the bright lights keep flashing,and the women keep on dancing
with the clowns, hey hey hey
they pick me up when im down hey hey
the rodeo clowns, hey hey hey
they pick me up when im down

the disco ball spinning, all the music and the women
the shots of tequila, theyll say that they need ya,
but what they really need is just a little room to breath
teeny bopping disco queen, she barely understands
her dreams of bellybutton rings and other kinds of things
symbolic of change but the thing that is strange
is that the changes occurred,and now shes just a part of the herd, hey hey hey
man, i thought that you heard,hey hey
the changes occurred hey hey hey
just a part of the herd

lights out, shut down, late night, wet ground
you walk by look at him, but he cant look at you
you might feel pity but he only feels the ground
you understand moods but he only knows let down
by the corner theres another one
reaching out a hand, coming from a broken man
you try to live but hes done trying
not dead, but definitely dying
with the rest of the clowns

sweeping the floors, open up the doors
turn on the lights, getting ready for tonight
nobodys romancing because its too early for dancing
but here comes the music
