Self medication of an easy kind


You have to be like a clown

making sure its a smile not a frown.

You have enjoy all the falls

and I mean also the fools.

You have to be like a clown

bouncing balls all around

not worrying why some fall to the floor.

Maybe next time you'll see

how easy it can be

to be like a clown.

Oh theres tears

for sure you can see them,

Oh theres a sadness

but its not really there.

Then in the end you know that clown

makes it all

work out right

with ba twinkle in his eye.

Thats why you need to be

like a clown,

never letting life get you down.

You really need to be a clown

the man with the upside down frown.
