"Carnival man"

Virginia Kammerer



Jingle, jangle, jangle; Carnival man's in town.
Sun scorched, with mind a tangle; Jingle, jangle, jangle.

Jingle, jangle, jangle; Shilling for the wicked witch;
Pursuing every angle; Never gonna be rich.

Carnival man on a merry-go-round; Can't get off or hide.
Carnival man, sentenced for life -- to ride.

Jingle, jangle, jangle; With his tambourine and song.
Trying out the ladies; Hoping it won't be long.

Carnival man on a merry-go-round; Can't get off or hide.
Carnival man, sentenced for life -- to ride.

Jingle, jangle, jangle; Living on the rim.
Singing his sad love songs; Solitary hymns.

Carnival man on a merry-go-round; Can't get off or hide.
Carnival man, sentenced for life -- to ride,

To ride, to ride, to ride, to ride, to ride...


(*note: We adapted Virginia's folk tune to our rock & roll style. I always thought that motorcycle riders would appreciate the sentiment here.*)
