The Clown - Poem by George Savige

Now Charlie Brown
The circus clown,
Would laugh from day to day.

And people came,
'Cause Charlie's fame
Had traveled far away.

When Charlie smiled
The crowd went wild,
And laughed and stamped their feet.

When Charlie died
He died with pride,
And charlie did it neat.

He heaved a sigh
And said 'goodbye',
And buckled to the floor.

From in the stands
They all clapped hands
And hollered for more
