and thinking of Twiggy

always make me think of this song. . .

. . .which I used to be sure was from The Boyfriend, but someone once told me it wasn't
Isn't it rich?
Aren't we a pair?
Me here at last on the ground
- and you in mid-air -

Send in the clowns

Isn't it bliss?
Don't you approve?
One who keeps tearing around
- and one who can't move -
But where are the clowns
- send in the clowns -

Just when I stopped opening doors
Finally finding the one that I wanted. . .
. . . was yours. . .
Making my entrance again with my usual flair
Sure of my lines
- nobody there -

Don't you love farce?

My fault I fear
I thought that
You'd want
What I want

- sorry my dear -
But where are the clowns
- send in the clowns -
Don't bother they're here
Isn't it rich,
Isn't it queer?
Losing my timing this late
In my career

But where are the clowns
- send in the clowns -
(there ought to be clowns)

Well maybe
Next year

Heck--I didn't know they'd used it in a movie....


But you can rest assured the punkin made me smile--even if it was a sad one.

It's from "A Little Night Music", sung by a woman who mets the man who asked her to marry him twenty years before. Then, she turned him down. Today, he has turned her down. (Yes, it's sad.)
