Death of a clown

Song Author Dai Davies Lyrics by: Dai Davies Performer: The Kinks Submitted by: eask
[C]My makeup is dry and [G]it cracks on [G7]my chin
I'm [F]drowning my sorrows in [C]whiskey and [G]gin  
The [C]lion tamer's whip doesn't [G]crack any[G7]more   
The [F]lions they won't bite and the [C]tigers won't [G]roar

[F]La la la [Dm]La la la [Bb]La la la L[Eb]a    [C]    
So [Dm]let's all drink to the [C]death of a [G]clown
[C]Won't someone help me to [G]break up this [G7]crown
[F]Let's all drink to the [C]death of a [G]clown
[F]La la la [Dm]La la la [Bb]La la la L[Eb]a    [C]    
[F]Let's all drink to the [C]death of a [G]clown

[C]The old fortune teller l[G]ies dead on [G7]the floor
No[F]body needs fortunes [C]told any[G]more
The [C]trainer of insects is [G]crouched on his [G7]knees
And [F]frantically looking for [C]runaway [G]fleas

[F]La la la [Dm]La la la [Bb]La la la L[Eb]a    [C]    
[F]Let's all drink to the [C]death of a [G]clown
So [C]won't someone help me to [G]break up this [G7]crown
[F]Let's all drink to the [C]death of a [G]clown
[F]La la la [Dm]La la la [Bb]La la la L[Eb]a    [C]    
[F]Let's all drink to the [C]death of a [G]clown

[C]La la la la la la [G]la la la [G7]la   
[F]La la la la la la [C]la la la [G]la  
[C]La la la la la la [G]la la la [G7]la   
[F]La la la la la la [C]la la la [G]la  

My makeup is dry and it cracks on my chin
I'm drowning my sorrows in whiskey and gin
The lion tamer's whip doesn't crack anymore
The lions they won't bite and the tigers won't roar

La la la La la la La la la La
So let's all drink to the death of a clown
Won't someone help me to break up this crown
Let's all drink to the death of a clown
La la la La la la La la la La
Let's all drink to the death of a clown

The old fortune teller lies dead on the floor
Nobody needs fortunes told anymore
The trainer of insects is crouched on his knees
And frantically looking for runaway fleas

La la la La la la La la la La
Let's all drink to the death of a clown
So won't someone help me to break up this crown
Let's all drink to the death of a clown
La la la La la la La la la La
Let's all drink to the death of a clown

La la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la la
