    Lyrics

    I'll remember forever
    When I was but three
    Mama, who was clever
    Remarking to me
    If son when you're grown up
    You want everything nice
    I've got your future sewn up
    If you take this advice

    Be a clown, be a clown
    All the world loves a clown
    Act the fool, play the calf
    And you'll always have the last laugh

    Wear the cap and the bells
    And you'll rate with all the great swells
    If you become a doctor, folks'll face you with dread
    If you become a dentist, they'll be glad when you're dead
    You'll get a bigger hand if you can stand on your head
    Be a clown, be a clown, be a clown

    Be a clown, be a clown
    All the world loves a clown
    Show 'em tricks, tell 'em jokes
    And you'll only stop with top folks

    Be a crack Jackanapes
    And they'll imitate you like apes
    Why be a great composer with your rent in arrears
    Why be a major poet and you'll owe it for years
    When crowds'll pay to giggle if you wiggle your ears
    Be a clown, be a clown, be a clown

    Be a clown, be a clown
    All the world loves a clown
    If you just make 'em roar
    Watch your Mounte bank account soar

    Wear a painted mustache
    And you're sure to make a big splash
    A college education I should never propose
    A bachelor's degree won't even keep you in clothes
    But millions you will win if you can spin on your nose
    Be a clown, be a clown, be a clown

    Give 'em quips, give 'em fun
    And they'll happy to say you're A-1
    If you become a farmer you've the weather to buck
    If you become a gambler you'll be stuck with your luck
    But Jack you'll never lack if you can quack like a duck
    Be a clown, be a clown, be a clown
