BILL ANDERSON lyrics - Wino The Clown

BILL ANDERSON
"Wino The Clown"

He's got a funny red nose old baggy pants
When he staggers down the street it's a funny little dance
Children gather round when he falls down
Everybody laughs at wino the clown

But they don't knowthat when
His wife died he died inside
He lost all his will to live and he had no use for pride
And not even all his children's love could bring him back again
He just crawled into a bottle now he's waiting for the end

He's got a funny red nose old baggy pants
When he staggers down the street it's a funny little dance
Children gather round when he falls down
Everybody laughs at wino the clown

Yeah they all laugh when he comes down the street stumbling all alone
Specially at the way he smiles and holds his arm as if someone's holding on
They all think he's lost his mind talking to thin air
Oh but only me and my daddy know that mama's walking there

He's got a funny red nose old baggy pants
When he staggers down the street it's a funny little dance
Children gather round when he falls down
Everybody laughs at wino the clown

But I never laugh when daddy falls down
I'll always love wino the clown.
