Don’t cry at all they’ll send in the clowns
To cheer us all when life breaks down
Sitting here listening to protest songs
Hiding away as I sing along
When will times be changing

Don’t sell your soul to all those clowns
It’s all you’ll own in this sorry town
When will artists do it for their art
When will losers find they’ve played their part
When will times be changing

Sitting here writing protest songs
Kidding myself as I sing along
When will times be changing?
