(B. Barnes)

Hmmm... hmmm...
Hmmm... hmmm...
I wanted the music to play on forever
Have I stayed too long at the fair?
I wanted the clown to be constantly clever
Have I stayed too long at the fair?
I brought me blue ribbons to tie up my hair,
But I couldn't find anybody to care.
The merry-go-round is beginning to slow now,
Have I stayed too long at the fair?
The music has stopped and the children must go now.
Have I stayed too long at the Fair?
Oh, Mother dear, I know you're very proud.
Your little girl in gingham is so far above the crowd.
No, Daddy dear, you never could have known,
That I would be successful yet so very much alone.
I wanted to live in a carnaval city,
With laughter, love everywhere.
I wanted my friends to be thrilling and witty:
I wanted somebody to care.
I found my blue ribbons all shiny and new,
And now I discover them no longer blue.
The merry-go-round is beginning to taunt me,
Have I stayed too long at the fair?
There is nothing to win and there's no-one to want me.
Have I stayed too long at the fair?
