Tightrope Walker

He wanted his newspaper waiting

Wanted his coffee fresh ground

Katie made it down in the basement

He didn’t like to wake to the sound

 

 

She tip-toed her way ’round the kitchen

Made sure his eggs were just right

She knew he’d pro’bly be angry

If she asked him where he was last night

 

 

Katie gave him a kiss on his way out

Then she cleared the dishes away

Slumped down in a chair and thought

I sure could use a circus today

 

 

She got a seat at the back and some popcorn

As the calliope started to sing

The boom of the drums and a spotlight

On a girl high above the ring

 

 

CHORUS:

Tightrope Walker

Right left, right left

Tightrope Wa--ATCH YOUR STEP!

 

 

There was no net there to catch her

As the girl inched out into space

She calculated every movement

A smile frozen on her face

 

 

You’d have to be crazy to do that

Katie heard a young mother say

As the girl took her bows in the sawdust

Katie thought “I do it every day”

 

 

CHORUS

 

INSTRUMENTAL

 

Katie wondered what to do

Then suddenly she knew

That it was time

To get herself a new act

She was gone gone gone

When he got back

 

 

Tight Rope Walker

Right left, right left

Tight Rope Walker

Right left, right left

Tight Rope Walker

Right left, right left

Tight Rope Walker

Right left right left right

LEFT!
