    This is just a way for all of us to get ideas from echuther on what our favorite Clown songs are or songs that you like to use and listen to when Clowning or just getting motivated to on the way to one of your Clown events. Be sure to name the song and artist.
    "Clown Dream" by Danny Elfman.

    I don't really listen to anything different than normal to get into character, but I'm a big fan of using Electro-swing in my acts. I also like the Beats Antique. Not sure what I'd really call their genre, maybe a bit of gypsyish?

    Well, you really can't go wrong with "Entry of the Gladiators," and it gets most people in the mood for clowns.

    My traditional pump-up song is Insane Clown Posse's "When I'm Clownin'". It's profane, yes, but it's basically my own version of our clown club's tradition of telling dirty jokes to each other before a gig: it's something to get you loosened up before the perhaps sad things you see at children's hospitals and special needs schools.

    Lately, though, I've been listening to this guy when putting on my makeup:

    Take Me Out To The Circus added 9-9-02 Submitted By: Alica Bowen
    Sung to: "Take Me Out To The Ball Game"

    Take me out to the circus
    Take me out to the show
    Buy me some peanuts and crackerjacks
    I don't care if I ever get back

    Cause it's clap, clap, clap for the jugglers
    and laugh, laugh, laugh for the clowns

    For it's one, two, three rings of fun at the old big top.


    Circus Show added 9-2-02 Original Author Unknown

    Sung to: "Are You Sleeping"

    Elephants walking, elephants walking
    See the clowns, funny clowns
    Ponies with their riders, poodles doing tricks,
    See the show, circus show


    Funny Clowns added 1-26-02 Original Author Unknown

    Sung to: "Frere Jacques"

    Funny clowns, funny clowns,
    Jump around, jump around.
    Sometimes making faces,
    Sometimes running races.
    Funny clowns, funny clowns.
    Funny clowns, funny clowns,
    Spin around, spin around.
    Sometimes with a big nose,
    Sometimes with two big toes.
    Funny clowns, funny clowns


    Funny Clown added 4-11-02 Original Author Unknown

    Sung to: "Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, Turn Around"

    Funny clown, funny clown,
    Spin around.
    Funny clown, funny clown
    Jump up and down
    Funny clown, funny clown,
    Touch your toes.
    Funny clown, funny clown
    Honk your nose.


    Silly Clowns added 9-17-03 Original Author Unknown

    Five silly clowns, jumping all around,
    Jump so high, then touch the ground.
    One silly clown said, "I can't stay,"
    So he turned around and hopped away.


    Big Red Noses
    (A Clown Song)
    Words (c) Julian the Juggler, 2007
    Music by Julius Fucik, 1897

    We are Clowns with big red noses,
    Hats and wigs and snappy clothes-es,
    Oversize, enormous shoes;
    We’re always happy – to meet you….

    We make you laugh – so much you cry.
    Sometimes – you won’t believe your eyes!
    Big Top tricks and silly shows,
    We tell you jokes you may not know….

    You might hear us coming before you can see
    The Clowns in the distance all singing off key.
    We don’t walk in straight lines, ser-ious-ly.
    And each Clown is diff’-rent, thank-ful-ly!

    We are Clowns, we make you smile.
    We often come from miles and miles.
    Around and about and up and down
    - The one way system in your town.

    We are Clowns with big red noses,
    Hats and wigs and snappy clothes-es,
    Oversize, enormous shoes;
    We’re always happy – to meet you….

    At all celebrations, for any event.
    Indoors, outdoors (or inside a tent!)
    For magic and mayhem with gallons of fun,
    Two Clowns are four times as funny as one!

    Here's "The Show Must Go On," which the very charming Leo Sayer performs while in clown make-up:

    Why are so many songs about clowns so sad?

    (Hmmm... sounds like a good lyric. Hold on... let me write this down....)

    James Darren's "Goodbye Cruel World," which suggests something nasty if it wasn't followed directly by "I'm off to join the circus."

    Hi Punkin I found a funny simularity between one of your youtube vids with one these Clown songs. click on the music vid then click on your vid but turn the sound off on your vid so that you can watch your vid while listening to the music vid.

    Play your vid twice with the song.
