The Three Professional "Swingers"

Three Professional “Swingers”

Come all you Hayseeds
Come all you Clod Busters
You can bring your ladies
And all the kids you can muster

They’re be a fine time
When we come into your town
When we do
You town will be up side down.

All the Merchants
Will draw their shades
As down Main street
Comes our big parade

Cages of Lions and Tigers
Elephants and a camel or two
Couple dancing bears,
Several horses and a Kangaroo

We’ll move to the football field
Where in the three rings
You’ll enjoy with fun and laughter
What B and B Circus brings

You’ll see us three Professional Swingers
Hanging by our knees
We’re the main attraction
On the flying trapeze.
