lyrics

the carnival pulls into town
raging through like an old dust cloud
set up shop in a parking lot
got a dollar that's all it costs

i want so bad just to be there
the lights from the rides i can see them
from where i stand

young and old they're flocking to
cotton candy and the petting zoo
and the high school boys try to get with girls
who are all dressed up in their mama's pearls

i want so bad just to be them
the lights in their eyes i can see them
from where i stand

the lights go dim and the brooms come out
they're sweeping up and moving south
and the rodeo clowns in colored rags
put paper cups into plastic bags

and i want so bad to just be with them
a family of fools i'm just a witness
from where i stand
