I jumped from trapeze to trapeze
And there was no net beneath
During my rehearsal.
I took two filled bottles in my left hand
And kept my right hand free for juggling,
I learned to tame the wild, I learned to talk with birds,
I learned to stand straight in front of arrow-shots.
I made my body fit, my face glow
For the performance day,
And then you came smiling Ring master.
I am a joker in your famous circus..
Therefore I laugh;
Therefore I laugh and do not smile...
