An Elephant stood here yesterday
It was big as a house and colored all grey
His trunk was so long it could reach to the sky
And the whole ground trembled as he walked by.
There were Clowns in the field here yesterday
All made up and dressed in a comical way
Some Horses paraded, some Lions roared
And a man ate fire and swallowed a sword.
A Big Tent stood here yesterday
It was round and striped and lit up so gay
It was still built up when I left last night
But today it’s just nowhere in sight.
The Circus is coming the posters did say
There’ll be magic and laughter and Bands will play
But the field now is empty, the sky so grey
And I wish that today was yesterday
