Mathis, Johnny - Send In The Clowns Lyrics

Isn't it rich, are we a pair
Me here at last on the ground
You in mid-air
Send in the clowns
Isn't it bliss, don't you approve
One who keeps tearing around
One who can't move
Where are the clowns
Send in the clowns
Just when I'd stopped opening doors
Finally knowing the one that I wanted was yours
Making my entrance again with my usual flair
Sure of my lines
No one is there
Don't you love a farce,
My fault I fear,
I thought that you'd want what I want
Sorry my dear!
But where are the clowns
There ought to be clowns
Quick send in the clowns
What a surprise,
Who could foresee?
I'd come to feel about you
What you felt about me?
Why only now when I see
That you've drifted away?
What a surprise
What a cliche
Isn't it rich, isn't it queer
Losing my timing this late in my career
And where are the clowns
Quick send in the clowns
Don't bother, they're here

  1. Joel PP

    Song for nans funeral

  2. allen sacharov

    it would be better if johnny's voice could just carry the song without the too heavy orchestration

  3. dmguk gtown

    when i found out what this song was all about it broke my heart..that sense of loss and unrequited love..bring the clowns in to distract from the pain.

    It is so divine to be listening to this beautiful voice so early in the morning.  Johnny Mathis is my morning tea. He is the loveliest singer in the world. I can't wait to see him in Portland, Oregon on Feb. 13, his Valentine's concert. I love you Mr. JM, thank you for the music.

  33. ReadMeReadYou

    Thank you. I'm so happy you enjoyed it all and yes, he is the best of the best.

  34. BuckieBear

    He is the human equivalent of a Stradivarius cello! And what stunningly beautiful photos you have found, Angela/RMRY, to illustrate this video! I love how you 'pan' them to make them move across the screen! Thank you!

    G C Renoir

    Think you mean a Stradivarius violin! ;) They are known for the sweetness and purity of their tone, so yes, John is reminiscent of one.

  40. mellowtouch429

    A double treat, one of my favorite song and your video is superb !!! My son and grand daughter just arrived home from Sydney for their annual vacation and brought me a new laptop with HDMI. I connected it to a wide screen TV and your video is outstanding,

    Thanks Angela for this. Great work as always.

  43. ReadMeReadYou

    How cute. That's very funny. : ) You know, I too have my favorites. I think miy most favorite is, "I'm Glad There Is You." I had such fun with that one.

  44. Marie Krantz

    Merci beaucoup Angela ! Johnny me fait toujours rêver ! oh........ :)))
    Thank you for beautiful vidéo *****

  45. lenoremewton

    I often think- "this is my favorite Angela video. No, this one is.." etc. In other words- i have many favorites - this is definitely one- I love it. SO! I have decided that what is needed is a DVD of "Angela's Greatest Hits"!! (sound familiar?) I bet there will be a lot of 'takers' :)

  46. ReadMeReadYou

    Thanks, I'm happy you liked it.. The autumn colors were fun to work with and JM is always a joy.

  47. ReadMeReadYou

    You're welcome and thanks for coming by and commenting. : )

  48. ReadMeReadYou

    Hi Berit......What a a lovely comment to sign on youtube and read. You're so kind. Thank you and I'm happy you enjoyed it. I wish I could put "smell" in a video. I love the scent of Autumn too. I agree wtih you, there is nothing like JM to make a day brighter.

  49. Chuck Ranker

    Beautiful photographs combined with a beautiful song sung by J Mathis is unbeatable. Thank you again for your effort.

  50. beweau

    No matter what the 'bump' of the day might be, listening to him sing for you the very first thing after you weak up, always makes it all easier. Thank you for another perfect gem Angela.

  51. beweau

    This is just so incredibly beautiful. The warm colours on the photos fits perfect to his warm, beautiful voice. It's autumn, no doubt about that. With you and here with me. The photos could have been taken just here, where I live. It's so true, Johnny Mathis is one big inspiration. For me he gives me the inspiration to meet each and every day. There are so many different Mathis Magic-songs/lyrics to start the day with, and make it wonderful. This is one.

  52. ReadMeReadYou

    You're welcome. Thank you so much for the very nice comment and taking the time to do so. I appreciate it so much.

    hard to add to what's been said- I always seem to be drawn to your beautiful 'artist's brush'- always obvious- and the choice of photos is PERFECT for this! the beauty of nature- provides a wonderful canopy for such a soulful song- lyrics and melody. And- it takes lovely soul to capture it all:) x
