  • Clowns are neato clowns are fun
    Clowns are loved by everyone
    Cops n' commies even fags
    Everybody loves a gag
    Clowns everywhere are freakin' out
    In parades they scream n' shout
    They're sad as hell, and they're singin' the blues
    Cause no one laughs at their great big shoes
    Here's some clowns we really love: Bozo, Scoopy, Rusty Nails
    Here's a clown we really hate: Ronald McDonald
    ( He's only in it for the burgers )
    I saw a clown in the mall today
    My brother cried and he ran away
    They get no respect, aren't served in bars
    No matter how many friends they can fit in their cars
    The other day I was drivin' around in the clown
    Mobile with 17 of my friends towin'
    The ferris wheel in the back and this cop pulls me over and says,
    "Where ya goin' Bozo?"
    I said, "I'm not Bozo. I sure wish I was, though.
    The man's a friggin' genius."
    Clowns are forced to take jobs across the nation
    Below the level of their education
    It's hard as hell to make ends meet
    With a painted face and gigantic feet
    Yesterday I was sittin' in a bar havin' a drink and this clown walks in and says,
    "Bartender, give me a tree fort."
    The bartender looks at him and says,
    "What's in a tree fort?"
    "Playboy books and cigars."
    Last verse same as the first Acapulco version, ten times worse
