SOMEbody once asked me
To go see Pagliacci
To cure whatever's getting me down
Then I burst into tears despite laughter and the cheers
I am the famous traveling clown

I said yep what a concept
I could use a little fuel myself
And we could all use a little change

@erinbee from this toot alone, I feel the urge to follow.
Is that ok with you?

@erinbee well the tears start coming and they don't stop coming
what a paradox now I can't stop bumming

@phooky Didn't make sense not to ask for pills
I'm a great clown, but my brain's got ills

@erinbee I defy anyone to find in all of english letters a more masterful slant rhyme than "ask me" / "pagliacci"

@erinbee I thought I was done with that smashmouth formula, but damn that's a good one.
