Organ Grinder

The organ grinder plays a song 
 Upon the old pump organ
 It’s her favorite melody
 She plays it soft and low
 She plays it soft and low
 
 You’d never even know she was there
 As long as she keeps playing
 Just somewhere in the background
 Until the music stops
 Until the music stops
 
 Nothing flashy, nothing special
 She keeps us moving on
 The show won’t go on without her
 On with the show
 On with the show
 
 Then one night outside of Memphis
 She smashed her right hand
 It swelled too much for her to play
 The worst show we ever had
 The worst show we ever had
 
 The juggler lost his rhythm
 He hit a monkey with a bowling pin
 Then the magician went on too long
 Jealous clowns got angry
 Angry clowns aren’t funny
 
 The dancing bear was all out of sorts
 He was in no mood for dancing
 He killed a man and maimed three more
 All on his way out of town
 We are all on our way out of town
 
 Nothing flashy, nothing special
 She keeps us moving on
 The show won’t go on without her
 On with the show
 On with the show
