lyrics

Baby's in the circus now,
Touring in the sticks,
Left me in the city,
And went to look for kicks.

I'm walking the pavement,
Watching the stars,
Caught in the headlights,
Of the passing cars.

The sun don't shine for me now,
The rose don't bloom, no, no, no,
Since my baby left me,
The sun don't shine no more.

I thought we had a good thing,
A love as safe as houses,
I always kept my shoes shined,
And creases in my trousers.

What did she see,
To make her leave me?
I'm in the dark.

The sun don't shine for me now,
The rose don't bloom, no, no, no,
Since my baby left me,
The sun don't shine no more.

I believe in honesty,
Sweetness, light and reason,
I don't believe in lechery,
In lying, spite and treason.

Here I am on bended knee,
And armed against these vices,
All alone, heartbroken,
Left to my own devices.

The sun don't shine for me now,
The rose don't bloom, no, no, no,
Since my baby left me,
The sun don't shine no more.
