The circus cam to our toun
And settled on the Green;
They heistit up the biggest tent
That I hae ever seen.

And there for twa-and-saxpence
He let me in to see
Some acrobats up in the ruif
Dae henners on a swee.

Pownies danced the cha-cha,
Monkeys rade on bikes,
They even had a fitba match
For teams o mongrel tykes.

The best turn in the circus was
The clown in baggy breeks
That gart me lauch until the tears
Cam rinnin doun my cheeks.
