I do the dance
I do the dance
I shake my legs
and I shake my hands
All around
Come watch the clown

It takes two to tango
and one limb to fail
why do they laugh
and shout out 'Hail'
when I'm down?
GIve me the crown

Oh the cloven foot stomp

I do the walk
the tight rope walk
Stumbling down
‘though I tried to stalk
All around
Come watch the clown

can't keep the pace
can't keep the pace
makes the world
a lonely place
when you're down
Take back the crown

Oh where do you go?
Oh the cloven stomp

blame me lord for what I’ve done
tried to be your special one
with my hoof
my cloven foot
but I knocked them down, I knocked them down
then I stamped them into the ground
with my hoof
the cloven foot
