Circus man Lyrics by Karen Lehner
Circus man by Karen Lehner
Before you step into his parlor like a fly
Your sweet innocence has filled me with
a cold apprehension
I don't want to hear your heart break and cry
If you can learn from the lessons of another
Then I pray, I pray that you will learn from mine
I was once like you - content
That is until I met
The muscle man that caught me with this line
He said,"Hey Baby, I'm a Circus Man,
If you know what I mean.
Yeah, Baby I'm a Circus Man.
I'll take you higher than your wildest dreams."
Well I guess I should have run away right then
But then he smiled at me and gently took my hand
And he was wearin' those tights
Ya know, that fit him just right
And I could measure how this evenin' might end
And then he took me to his place
beneath the moonlight
And he wrapped his arms around me just so
Then I was wearin' this thing
Ya know with a couple of rings
And he was sayin' "Baby, now I'll never let you go.
Oh no, cause I'm a Circus Man...."
So he took me to his loft, his little play ground
And he pulled me close beside him, just us two
I thought, 'How kinky can you get,
I mean he's even got a net.'
And I was wond'rin' what he wanted me to do
I'm ashamed I guess to tell you all what happened
I was a victim of desire then and there
He had me hangin' from my knees
I was beggin' "Baby, baby please!"
Next thing I know I'm makin' circles in the air
Right there for my Circus Man
If you know what I mean
Oh yeah he's a Circus Man
He'll take you higher than your wildest dreams
Look, my mama never told me it could be like this
Yeah, I never ever heard her say
That all the muscles men develop
They can keep so stiff
That you just can't pull away
Hey, it's literally impossible
I'd like to tell you that I kept
some sort of distance
That I was never just a play things for his charms
But then he said that word
Hep was all I heard
And I let go and I flew into his arms
The arms of a Circus Man...
Now, I admit that I was happy there beneath him
In fact, I never felt so satisfied so fine
But when he started to let go
I wasn't ready and I said,"No!"
But he said, "Sorry, there's another girl in line."
And as he pulled away I tumbled, tumbled downward
I felt so cheated but I really could not blame
For I know deep in my mind
Hey, a hard man's good to find
But it's something that they never can sustain
Not even a Circus Man, if you know what I mean
Oh yeah, he's a Circus Man
Who'll take you higher than your wildest dreams
And I've met some Circus Men
And made them MY Circus Men
And all of those Circus Men
Took me higher than my wildest dreams
