Bring on the Clowns

This song is by George Jones and appears on the album Memories of Us (1975).

Come all you merry makers
You wine drinkers and heart breakers
Pass me the bottle one more round
Come all of you love makers
All you cheaters and lie makers
Fill me with happiness and bring on the clowns.

There's a place around the corner and I can't wait to go
I can't stay away from there when I'm feeling low
Running from my problems, cheating on my wife
Acting like a hobo, running out on life.
Laughin' loud, telling jokes, drinking to much wine
Gathered 'round the table we're all one of a kind.

Some come all you merry makers
You wine drinkers and heart breakers
Pass me the bottle one more round
Come all of you love makers
All you cheaters and lie makers
Fill me with happiness and bring on the clowns.

I thought that I was happy till I saw you walkin' in
And through the loud and noisy crowd you reach out your hand
I know I shouldn't be here, I really don't belong
I'm proud that you still love me and you wanna take me home.

Goodbye you merry makers
You wine drinkers and heart breakers
I'll be gone when the bottle passes 'round
Goodbye you love makers
All you cheaters and lie makers
You'll never miss me when you bring on the clowns.

'Cause I'll be with my baby when you bring on the clowns
