I'll Make a Circus
© 2022 Cindy Prince

My schoolin'
Wasn't nothin' fancy
Didn't learn much
While I was there
My schoolin'
Wasn't classy
I was the clown
In the dunce chair

My growin' up
Wasn't easy
Too much work
And not enough play
My growin' up
I was always teasin'
I got in trouble
Nearly every day

I was always foolin' around
But now I'm a fool for you
I'll always be a bit of a clown
And I'll make a circus for two
Yeah I'll make a circus for you

It might not be the greatest show on earth, but it'll be fun
Though I'm a joker I'm in it for the long run

My datin' life
Was a laugh
Couldn't ever find
The right one
My datin' life
Full of gaffes
Though I kept laughin'
It was a dry run

Repeat chorus


I always love Cindy's lyrics--these being no exception. And a terrific "Randy Newman"-style vocal to go along with them. I'd swear that was him--and I'm a fan! Great collab, you guys!


I love your interpretation of Cindy's insightful lyrics. A nice, gentle love song with a unique flavor both musically and lyrically.


You piano is always so good an good to hear your vocal description of this fine Cindy lyric


The tags made me curious because I connect country with guitars. And I didn't regret listening to this great piano arrangement. Interesting stops and lovely playing. The lyrics are cool. Great collaboration!


The piano treatment gives this a melancholy, but not sad, feel overall. Another good collab!


Beautiful song and collaboration. Sincere, childhood and growing related, lovely expressed. Amazing to listen to. Cindy's lyrics has some sad and nostalgic notes and Roddy went for a nostalgic feel and took the lyrics to the next level. Enjoyed my listening very much.


This is awesome! Love the piano, and the feeling that I wanted! It is marvelous! Thanks so much!
