Clown in Broad Daylight

This song is by Ron Sexsmith and appears on the album Other Songs (1997).

Standing on the side of the road near the overpass
With a sign around his neck that says "Carwash
Free balloons"
He's a clown in broad daylight

He's waving at the people in cars who do a double take
And goad him on with their horns outside the carwash
Like a cartoon
He's a clown in broad daylight

Raising eyebrows and emotions
He don't phase some people at all
For every day the circus is open
Everything is all right
It's just a clown in broad daylight

Everything is all right
For against the backdrop of ordinary life
It's the easy laugh
That gets you through your working day and the hogwash
Sad but true
He's a clown in broad daylight

He's waving at you
He's a clown, a clown in broad daylight
