"Just join the circus like you meant to do, when you were so high.
Pitch your troubles under a tent and you’re bound to lose ‘em by and by.
Say so long to fair Schenectady greet sweet Santa Fe.
Toss your hat and cane in a sack again,
Shoulder your pack and then hitch up the shay.
Kiss the cat and never look back again,
When the circus comes your way."
The "Greatest Show on Earth" is in Albany, and four tickets came my way for my birthday, so today we packed the clowns in the car and headed for the circus. Old Uncle Ira would have been proud. Thanks Mom and Dad!
