Streisand, Barbra - 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

  7. Ralph Côté

    waooooo ! J'adore !

  8. pat comerford

    Am I the only who considers this a better version of this amazing song than the Judy Collins' version?

  9. Sheila Wilson

    Hauntingly beautiful. Magnificent voice 🤩😍

  10. Daniel phipps

    Barbra is a angel in every thing she does.

  11. ícҽís թհօҽղíx

    Haunting....

  12. Louise Brown

    I have loved this song since I was 5 years old. May be I knew then what was to come in my pathway of life .

  13. Lynne F

    Absolute perfection..love the lyrics, the meaning...falling on your face...I can certainly emphasise with the sentiment...left alone... beautiful

  14. Spoiler

    Theme of the democrat party LOL!! ☺

    Frank Darmstadt

    Theme of your ass

  15. Paul Thibault

    2:24 "Don't you love..... farts?"

    Paul Thibault

    @Scotti medolla lmao... that's what it sounds like she's saying, dumb dumb. Never heard of "misheard lyrics"?

  16. Ronald Mannellino

    Perfect!!!

  17. Scotti medolla

    Streisand nails it. Judy Collins, is great, but Barbara gives it emotion.

    Spoiler

    But Frank Sinatra outdoes them all!

    Scotti medolla

    @Spoiler yes Frank did it also, but between them, (and this is personal taste ,) I love Frank, he was the greatest, but on this one, Barbara has the edge..

  18. Katharina Rusch

    ✨✨😍✨✨
    I Loved

  19. Geri S.

    Eine großartige, intensive Stimme. Barbra ist eine tolle Sängerin und Schauspielerin.

  20. Thanos Becomes Darkseid

    i used to think that my life was a tragedy, but now i realise it's a comedy

  21. Thanos Becomes Darkseid

    i hope my death makes more cents than my life

  22. Fernando Mardaras

    Lo mejor de lo mejor, vaya voz!!!!!!!

  28. Walkiria Mendes

  29. Sher Alltucker

    Gorgeous

  30. Kneipp dINSLAKEN

    It is ..like it is..since I ever heard This Babramaking me the suns 1000 times turning around my heads....YOU are great -YOUre name is BARBRA......!Don`t bother....

  31. DrH5N1

    so much air was consumed that day

  32. John Cater

    Much covered song. But my personal favourite. I think we have all been there..

  33. Sue Skeie

    Listened to a few different singers versions, this is by far the best, beautiful, can feel the emotion when she sings. What a voice!

  34. Carolynska S

    How many people have to call for the clowns....This happened to my friend. I told her and told her about this one man she was dating....Quiet, handsome like a Greg Peck type in Atticus Finch..or the pickle seller in Crossing Delancy .......But no she always had to go for the bad boy types.. Well Joe got the message and left and she was sure singing this song...send in the clowns...just knowing the one that I wanted was yours......

  35. Slayer

    Olivia Newton John's version is much better.

  36. Bryan Daly

    her music is so beautiful it makes me cry and i am a man

  37. mr cash cashiers

    THE EARTH IS FLAT

    Frank Darmstadt

    so is your behind

  38. dmguk gtown

    this and the judy collins version are the best..the clowns are actually heroes in a circus..distracting the crowd when something bad happens..its about one person loving another..bt not acting on it..till its too late and they have move their life on...its heartbreaking really

  39. Manny Rodriguez

    SIMPLY... THE GREATEST STARRRRR OF ALL TIME... STREISANDDDDDDDD

    Andy Haslam

    Totally agree Manny. When she was a child in Brooklyn she would stand at the bottom of the stairs in the block of flats and sing letting her voice echo round the building. The other children she knew called her the girl with the voice.How right they were.

  40. Lorri Taylor

    I remember my mother loved her music now if I put any kind of music she gets mad at me she is 90 and I'm 12 going on 60 music makes the world a better place and it helps me to take care of her 24 /7

  41. stefaniate

    Wow ! I didn't think a woman can do justice to this song ! I was wrong !

    Frank Darmstadt

    Uh, women have been doing justice to this song since 1975. . .

  42. José Umberto Sabino

    Ouvir Barbra eleva a auto estima.

  43. Joan Gunning

    My all time favorite female singer! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

  44. Lee Bruce

    Boring. Voice

  45. Colette Thomas

  48. Ricardo Moreira

    Música incrível, interpretação incrível! Emocionante

    É como o vinho, quanto mais o tempo passa, melhora cada vez mais ❣️🙏

  49. Tom Marvolo Riddle

    Thumbs up, if you're here for the Joker <3

  50. Nordlicht und stolz darauf

    Berührend!!

  51. John Chisholm

    "Me here at last on the ground
    , You in mid-air" So sad... so familiar to me. I'll never give up though. After 32 years, you still make me want to be a better man for you.

  52. Davide Zenari Official

    If you wish, listen to my version
    https://youtu.be/ZHtpHRFqAaI

  53. Andy Haslam

    Utterly spellbinding.Barbra has the voice that just makes you stop and listen. There will never be a voice like this in our lifetime. Totally unique and priceless.

  54. nietzscheposterchild

    better than Sinatra

  55. Tatiana Romonov

    It always sucks me in even after playing on repeat

  56. Chris Hall

    Love this rendition but loved the first one first great song...

  57. Jefferson Elias Santos

    Simplesmente a melhor versão de Send in the clowns! Mágico como tudo que Barbra Streisand interpreta! 👏👏👏 ❤

  58. Matthew Klauber

    OK, we get it. The golden timbre of your voice is eerily evocative of deep-seated emotions we weren't even aware we had. Stop, already. You're amazing.

  59. Robert Ellam

    Barbra Masterclass

  60. Daniel Toth Music

    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

    Quick send in the clowns
    Don't bother, they're here

    Painful. Beautiful. I feel like a fool so many times trying. I hope my son knows how much I try to give him a good life. Love you, little Noah. Your dad might be a clown sometimes but he loves you. At 2 you don't know but maybe someday you'll know how much I love you

    Theo Grimreaper

    What a beautiful post Kevin!

    Kevin Crum

    @Theo Grimreaper thank you. He is special to all of us. I never thought I would get to have a child so he is my treasure. I never feel I'm enough for him but he'll always know he's loved at the very least.

  70. TheNubadak

    I like to spend my time geting stoned to Judy Collins and drinking more than I can rationaly handle.

  71. Raul Abejuela

    So beautiful voice that makes one emphatize with the song's tale. The best version i've heard of this song.

  72. Steven Greer

    Back in the 70’s I was a poor black kid living in the inner city projects of Houston Texas. My life was hell. It was a hard and dreary life. I was a miserable child back then. When I was twelve I happened to catch the movie Funny Girl on tv. I was blown away by Barbra. I had never heard such an incredible voice before. I scraped together every cent I could manage after that and bought her records. And would spend hours in my room alone listening to her music. She brought something beautiful to the drab gray existence my life was back then. And helped me through the worst of time in my life. For that I shall be forever grateful. Many years later she is still a big part of my life and I still love her madly.

    Lynne F

    Love your story, a very positive and uplifting tale of beating the odds

    ícҽís թհօҽղíx

    Steven I'm so sad to hear that it breaks my heart sweetie

    John Roth

    Steven, Your story and mine are similar in terms of Barbra Streisand's incredible music giving us the emotional strength to go on with life and prosper. I am so happy to hear that your enchantment with her music has been lifelong, as mine has. My father brought home her first album when I was 12. That was 1963. The Broadway album saved me from certain suicide. My bond with Barbra grows stronger with each passing year. My compliments to you sir for having true excellence in music appreciation.
