The James Clark Institute - Big Shoes To Fill lyrics

Clark

Step right up, watch me, forget about you
There’s a special place for me in Baraboo
I hope you’ll come up and see me fall down.

I know you have another, maybe two
Juggling’s never been so difficult for you
If I know you, and I do, you’re not wearing a frown.

But I am leaving these big shoes to fill, big shoes to fill
I know you want to so I know you will fill these big shoes.

There’s a broken seltzer bottle on the 3rd ring floor
A broken heart in trailer number four
Because I'm sure he fills you up with passion and with mirth.

I understand this show it can’t go on
We’ve been pretending for eight years on
Now I know you’ve gone and this heart’s taken the greatest blow on earth.

But it’s leaving you with big shoes to fill, big shoes to fill
I know you want to so I know you will fill these big shoes.

I’m not a strong man but I’m very tall
But you can make me feel oh so very small
Just like the dwarf in the 2 o’clock show
I’m a wonder of the world and I wonder where’ll you go, now ..

The sword swallower and the acrobat
They both agree your words were sharp as tacks
Now there’s no turning back and no net down below.

The tattooed lady she's looking blue
The elephants are grey just like me too
Unlike them you will forget me by tomorrow.

But please remember these big shoes to fill, big shoes to fill
I know you’re searching for new sights and thrills.

Big shoes to fill, big shoes to fill
I know you want to but you never will fill these big shoes.

Step right up, watch me, forget about you.
